Alternative Covers and Life In General

Found this on the Netlibrary website today:


Yep, that's the cover for the downloadable version of A Red Polka Dot in a World Full of Plaid. Audible.com shows the original cover, but for some reason, Netlibrary is using this one.

I'm not sure if I like this cover better than the old one. However, I do like that there's an "A" at the beginning of the title. If I ever get a high resolution pic of the cover, I'll post in on the website.

And speaking of my website, I've added a few more things on there (including a placeholder for My Life as a Rhombus). I'll still fleshing out a few areas, so don't be surprised if you see a few misspellings (I think I caught all the broken links, however). I'll let you guys know as soon as I have content up for Rhombus.

School is going well. I was worried about all the reading that I was going to have to do, but it's amazing how many books you can read when you turn off the television.

After talking with my advisor, we decided that I'd work on Righteous for at least part of the year. I'm still undecided on what I want to focus on later in the semester--I originally thought it'd be middle grade fiction, but after reading Bridge to Terabithia, I'm not so convinced that I'm a MG author.

But hell, some days, I'm not so convinced that I'm an author at all.

Varian, I agree, I like the original design SO much better. There's probably some reason they couldn't use it though. Just two concerns from a visual person: The title doesn't communicate well with the words'a red polka dot.' Now it communicates 'lots of red polka dots in a world of lots of plaid.' Also, I pictured the mc as younger looking and lighter-skinned, since she's racially mixed.

If you're having self-doubt, then you're DEFINITELY an author....
