Cover Crazy hosted by The Book Worms

Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms it is a weekly meme. Admiring Book covers what the meme is for - showcasing the prettiest covers you can find!


This week I'm crazy for .... 

  Okay, so I’m promoting my own cover. I just couldn’t pass on this. The cover artist did a fabulous job! I just love the way she took my idea and ran with it. The magical hands are hovering around a magical moon or crystal ball. The background has that electrical, magic feel with an air of mystery about it and the left hand holds the magical amulet that helps the main characters travel back in time. Awesome!
    With a magical amulet in hand, three friends are whisked back in time to the Salem Witch Hunts, a terrible time in U.S. history. When Tituba, the Paris' slave, secretly teaches the children a lot more than housekeeping, like voodoo, fortune-telling, and spell casting, it leads to utter chaos in the village. Ultimately, Emily, Megan and Ben uncover a hidden secret which may alter the course of history.
    Can they get the villagers to see what's really causing the fits and tantrums before they get accused of being witches themselves? Follow the friends on a fantastic adventure as they uncover a mystery when they travel back in time.

Following Blogs and Leads

The very important "following of blogs" plays a big part of networking. Going through the hundreds of emails I get daily, I follow each link and read info and connections that people have made. Through all of this I have found out things such as how authors got their agents, who their agents are, where they are located, and how to get in touch with the agent. I've also read all about how they went about their book signings, giveaways, and social networking, linking to writer's critique groups and blog groups. All of this is building a stronger platform, and helping me make connections that are making a difference one step at a time. It's amazing. I just had an agent email me who absolutely loves the premise of my work and is very interested if I make my book 10,000 - 12,000 words longer! That's a lot of writing. But anything goes in the world of getting noticed.

A Thousand Words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Let's turn that around a bit. As a writer, if you can take one moment in time, like a picture, and turn it into a sensory overload, you would have a great piece of prose. Stretch that special moment out, describing what your senses are taking in - how the character feels, what he/she sees, senses, touches, smells, tastes - you know what I mean. Then you have taken one special moment and made it into virtual reality. What a great way to get your readers involved. A great tip to expand your writing!
