Parked With A Broken Spring

Parked is coming along.  Everyone is traveling.  Everyone is creating.  Joe is creating a spectacle of himself.

I'd like some good weather before summer arrives.  I went out yesterday to take some photos of the daffodils up the road and it started to snow.  I went back inside.

Why I Won't Be Around And What You Can Do About It

Well, nothing, really.  But I do hit and run on my Facebook pages real well, so go there if you want the latest news on things like Bad Apple, Bittersweet Farm and all the politically incorrect news items the mainstream media ignores.

I promised I would do Bad Apple 4 after Bittersweet 2 and I am being good to my word.  Parked isn't parked any longer and it's making slow progress toward the conclusion.

If you read a book and like it, try to leave a review.  Tell your friends how much you enjoyed it.  Not just for me, for any author.  We're all in this together.

The Missed Wish

I always liked the story about a girl uprooted from her school and friends to move across the country only to feel disoriented in a strange California town.  Then she learns secrets her father has been hiding for years that make her an embarrassing public figure for her 15 minutes of fame.  One thing that helps save Cap's sanity is the high school polo team.  The other thing is the captain of the polo team, Mill, who is very cute.  What part is the missed wish?  She wishes for something and gets it.  There's nothing quite like wishing for something and getting it hard.

The cover never worked.  There was something wrong about the color tone of the original photo of a guy and girl and I couldn't correct it in Photoshop, so I did the best I could and moved on.

Today I found a couple images on Flickr, free to use with attribution.  So I tried a couple of those and came up with this as a new cover.  Opinions?
