  1. The cover is lovely and I’m wondering about the cover of the 3rd book now. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Me too! I picture green for the background, but I’m not sure. I can’t wait. I want to talk to my cover designer to create it right now. 🙂

      1. Oh how I love those cover designers of your book. 🙂

        1. Thank you! I love what she’s done too. 🙂

          1. Wish I had such talent. 🙂

          2. Simi, you are too kind. 🙂

          3. I hope that you are not angry with me regarding the giveaway disaster I made, Jean. I really am sorry. 🙁

          4. Never Simi!!! I really appreciate the work you put into to host the giveaway on your blog. I am well aware of how technology does things its own way. I’m not worried at all. A post delayed by a few hours is nothing!

            I should tell you about some of my technology disasters someday. Oh man!! They will make you feel like the queen of technology.

            Don’t be too hard on yourself, Simi. I really appreciate all you do for authors and I wouldn’t dream of being angry with you.
