Hemphill Towers Cover Reveal.


Woo Hoo! Hemphill Towers now has a beautiful cover, thanks to the talented Marion Sipe. Even though I’m deaf, I can hear the applause from my characters.

Quiet now, I know you’re happy. Riley, what do you think of the cover?

Riley: “I love it! Trent looks so handsome. Will Marion read this? If not, tell her she matched us well.”

I’ll be sure she knows how you feel. Are you excited that our book will be published soon?

Riley: “Oh yes! I can’t wait for people to read our story.”

Dierk: “Hey! Why am I not on the cover?”

Well, Dierk, you know everybody wouldn’t fit on there.

Dierk: “Yes, but without me, there’d be no book, and you know it.”

Trent: “Knock it off, Dierk. It was hard enough having to share book pages with you. We don’t need you to spoil our cover.”

JB and Federico in unison: “Amen!”

Stella: “Come on people. This is a time to celebrate. Let’s put the spotlight on our creator so she can tell us what comes next.”

Birdie: “I second that. Leona, a birdie told me (no pun intended) that we’ll celebrate the reveal with ‘Leona’ wine.”

Yes. I’d love to have a glass of wine with my characters. Even you, Dierk.

“No, thanks If I can’t share the cover, why should I share the wine?”

JB: “You’re absolutely right, Dierk. Goodbye, catch you later, maybe.”  (Door slams, followed by laughter.)

He might feel better when the book launches in Oct./Nov. We’ll have a big party then. Mayor Hemphill will be our honored guest. But for now, enjoy your wine.

Three cheers for my characters who made this cover reveal possible!

All:  "Hear! Hear!"

Hemphill Towers coming in Oct/Nov from: MuseItUp 
Anthology: Bump off Your Enemies

    1. Thanks, Marsha. Having the cover does help to know it's all getting closer to being published.

      My characters loved their part in the reveal. Dierk might not admit it just yet.

  10. Wow now this clever post really makes me curious about the book. Although I haven't met Dierk yet, please tell him you may write an entire story about him next time and he'll be the star on his own cover. That should make him happy. Best wishes!!
