Winner of the VCP contest
The first name out of the hat was Joanne Cleary.
The answer was the windows! The Spanish version also used the wrong picture and you can see why my senior editor was apologetic. It is a very lovely rose garden...but somehow I doubt Ivar and Thyre would have seen it. My sr editor knows that the readers of Historical do notice things like that and it does bother her. It is one of the reasons why she is such an excellent senior editor.
The feel of the cover is wonderful (mostly I notice the couple, philistine that I am!) and it does capture the feel of the book. And I do like the new M&B look. I saw the new Historicals out in Tescos yesterday and they were screaming Buy me! Lovely jewel like covers.
In other news:
Today is my workshop in Knaresborough for New Voices. I really hope it goes well and that the people who go enjoy it.
My editor was in touch yesterday. She has okayed my ideas for the second book which is exciting and is looking forward to seeing my partial of the first book in the new contract. I have promised it for next week. It will get there. My editor is lovely and I do like working with her.
