Yippee! Day Laughs Night Cries Book Cover Reveal


Jeannie Ruesch (Will Design for Chocolate) captured what I wanted.  I wanted a background that could be considered night or day - dawn or twilight.
Jeannie asked what emotion I wanted to convey and I gave her these 3 words: sadness, pain, loneliness.  The next morning I checked my email and could not believe what my eyes were staring at.  Thanks, Jeannie.
Contentment is an understatement for the way I feel about the book cover design.  I'm "over the moon."  Creating a book is like playing with a new toy.

  1. She's very good at what she does. Love, love, love the background image in particular. Really sets the mood. Really like the name of Jeanne's business too. Too cute.

    Everything in the writing/editing stage feels like giving birth. It's this part that really the fun stuff.

    You're moving ahead for sure. Good stuff!
