Sometimes the life of an author can be challenging. Take, for instance, this anthology I’m doing with Ruth Ann Nordin, writing as Barbara Joan Russell. Everything was going along smoothly when someone spotted a cover just like ours, but in a very different genre. So we had to scramble to get a new one. Anya Kelleye worked very hard to create a new one for us. Ruth, Anya, and I searched images until Anya found the perfect one. And she kept me calm the whole time since I was about to panic. 🙂
Nothing ever goes as smoothly as we think. So we should always make sure we’re prepared for all kinds of things. We’re now right on schedule, the manuscripts have been sent to Parchment & Plume, and we’re good to go!
