I had a moment this weekend where I realized just how badly I want to be published.
As authors, we all try to imagine covers for our darlings. What I never expected was to find someone who loves my story enough (almost as much as me, I think) to not only dream up a cover, but go out and find an incarnation of it.
Behold, the thoughful creativity of my awesome critique partner, Leigh Ann:
Love All Year Round contest will know the signifigance, and agree this is perfect.
It made me realize how badly I want other people to love the story I've written. How I want people to be affected by my characters, and think about them even when they're not reading.
And most of all, it gave me a much needed glimmer of hope that it *could* actually happen someday. Thanks Leigh Ann. You rock. *And so do my other CP's! My ms is worlds better because of all of you!*
