This is getting exciting!

After years in the making, within hours, my latest work of fiction and poetry entitled The Postcard and Other Short Stories & Poetry will be available via Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Today, I’m unveiling and telling the story of the cover.

But first I have to say…I love this part of the process. The part where it all comes together. The part where you get to see your work come to fruition.

When I worked at the Orioles and was the editor of Orioles Magazine, I loved going to the printer’s and watching the magazine come off the presses. My heart would pulsate as my adrenaline kicked in; the excitement of seeing all the hard work realized in the printed form has always been thrilling for me. And while Kindles and Nooks are awesome, I still prefer the printed form and love to hold a book in my hands.

….

So now it’s time! I’m excited to share the final cover…which will be available very soon…

Here it is!!!

Vintage Postcard design

As I was trying to figure out what image to use for the cover, I knew I wanted it to reflect the title piece, a short story called The Postcard. In the story, the male character sends his ex-girlfriend vintage postcards. I knew I wanted it to be pretty and look like a postcard and have a little bit of a retro-could-be-set-in-any-time-period feel to it.

When I saw one of my student’s photos from a recent trip she to to Europe on Instagram, I was immediately taken by one photo in particular. In fact, all of Grace Clark’s photos are stunning, but this one connected perfectly with the story I had written. I contacted Grace when she returned from her vacation and asked her how she felt about allowing me to use her photo on the cover of my book. Luckily for me, she agreed, and the photo she perfectly represents what I wanted the book to look like. As for Grace and her photography, I am happy to say she is now a paid photographer, so if you need any shots for your projects, I can put you in touch with her. As you can see, it’s a beautiful book cover and just what I wanted for the cover of my fourth book.

So THANK YOU, GRACE.

I’m waiting for the green light on the book from Amazon and Barnes & Noble and will let you know when it’s ready for purchase.

It should be any day now.

Thanks, as always for following my writing, editing, and publishing journey. I really hope you enjoy the collection of short stories I’ve put together for you. Here’s a little more about he project if you want to learn more about the contents.
