11 Nov Holy Krakatoa Beautiful Cover!
I’m working on my next blog trick, inserting a picture. I thought I would start with this:
So I had this whole post written last night. I just dashed it off and was ready to post it in 5 minutes. But really, it was 5 minutes of brilliance.
I should have suspected something was wrong when WordPress was making me write on top of my own words. Instead of going to the next line, it would just write over what I had written. So I couldn’t see what I’d written and I couldn’t rethink it. Couldn’t edit, couldn’t anything. Now some people might have suspected something was wrong. But not me. No, I integrated it into my post–I created something brilliant about how it was going to be the latest encryption tool and I expected to be snatched up by the CIA or the FBI as a consultant. But of course only as a consultant because I don’t want to give up being a literary agent, you know.
I didn’t stop there. I went on and said, “The eagle has landed.” But no, all my clients–and readers–would be so disappointed with that. Because that’s so cliche. So I left everyone with a final thought. I said The tiger has roared. And in that simple phrase–all encrypted because I couldn’t see it–I thought about how brilliant I am because, don’t you get it??? Tigers don’t roar!!! Lions do.
Somehow I was convinced that even though I was typing in encryption mode, that when I hit “publish” it would all become clear. But of course it didn’t. It all disappeared instead.
WAIT!!! I just realized. My messages went into the ether. Of course! That’s where spy messages go. Duh. I feel so much better.
Ok, well, you’re probably wondering what this all has to do with that gorgeous cover up there. Nothing, of course. My post had some stuff about the book too, but that got deleted also and then got lost in my enthusiasm for the super spy encryption stuff. But probably I should tell you about the book.
Anyway, isn’t that cover gorgeous??? Like holy wind chimes gorgeous??? I’m still working on my signature phrase. Did you see that?? I added a picture and linked to my blog all in one post!! I’m totally getting the hang of this blogging thing.
So. This gorgeous cover is of course for ENDLESSLY, the final book in the NYT bestselling trilogy that began with Paranormalcy and Supernaturally. Now, if you haven’t read the first two, I don’t know what you are waiting for, but do it NOW because Endlessly is coming out in July and it’s going to be HOLY KRAKATOA AWESOME!!!
