Our favorite cover for Reversible Skirt

Reversible Skirt front cover

This is a beautiful version of the cover for Reversible Skirt that my sister Kathy did a while back. She is thinking of adding some subtle color to it. I can hardly wait to see what she does next.

This isn’t proportional to the dimensions of what the actual book will be (this looks like a 6×9 cover, and the book will be 5.25 x 8), so there will be less of the lower part of our mother’s picture, which, I believe, will be a good thing.

I think the picture of our mother ghosted in the background is so fitting, but maybe it should be a bit lighter. In the next version, I expect we’ll dispense with the notice of the RockWay Press award, too.

What do you think? Isn’t Kathy brilliant?

The Kiminee Dream: Now Available!

My new novel is coming soon. Mark your calendar!

Influenced by folklore and magical realism, The Kiminee Dream is a lyrical story with characters equally charmed and challenged while living where the ordinary and miraculous coexist seamlessly. If you like depth as well as whimsy, arresting twists, and details that rouse your senses, you’ll love what is both an eloquent exploration of acceptance and a tender tribute to the people of Illinois.

    love it! No color necessary… we are talking the ’50’s, right! I remember showing my first grade class (as their teacher) a photo of me when I was in first grade… one little girl queried, “Mrs. Predick, when did you turn color??” Love it.

    Thanks for the enthusiastic feedback, Chris. That’s a funny anecdote It’s similar to a question one of my nephews asked his mom the first time he saw an old black and white movie: “When did the world get color?” :o)
