Counting Down the Days: MARI’S HOPE Is On the Way!

The publishing process is nothing if not complex. I found myself on a steep learning curve while working on my debut  novel, ODIN’S PROMISE. Having been through the many stages and nuances of moving a book from manuscript to release TWICE now, I’m better able to predict those stages, including timing. Even so, each element along the way is, well,  no less than thrilling. 

For example, even though the title sheet will eventually be updated with the actual cover art, seeing it in early form takes my breath away. Here’s a screenshot, but you can view it for yourselves on the publisher’s site, here.

There will be plenty of other exciting moments in the months from now to September. If you haven’t already done so, sign up on the right menu bar to receive newsletters. Since those won’t be sent often, you might also want to subscribe to this blog. As Advance Reader Copies reach reviewers, as the amazing cover artist (Kathleen Spale) completes her work, as additional landmark moments arrive, I’ll be sharing them here. 

Here’s hoping you’ll come along for the ride!

  1. Dear Sandy,

    I love the title and the pretty cover. Mari’s Hope sounds just great and I can’t wait to read it. The cover reminds me of my sweater. I am looking forward to October and am so excited!!!

    I love your yard and glad you are doing better after all this time.

    Hugs and Kisses to you, Colby and Kaffee!!!!!!!


    • Thanks so much, Gerri. You’re a priceless and trusted friend.
      I love the color and pattern of the temporary cover, too, but I’m really excited and anxious to see the eventual art from Kathleen Spale. The mood and tones should complete the three book set really well, and I’ll share it with a cover reveal post here as soon as possible, but it will be a while!

  2. You know we’ll be with you for this and all rides!!!
    So exciting!
    Love you!

    • Love you both (ALL!) and I’m so grateful to have you in my life.
