“I WAS HOPING TO FIND A ROMANCE NOVEL, BUT I DOUBT THE GREAT PEMBERLEY LIBRARY HAS MANY OF THOSE. I ADMIT, THOUGH, THAT I WAS IMMEDIATELY DISTRACTED AND DID NOT DO MUCH LOOKING.” –– Elizabeth Darcy in Mr. Darcy’s Promise
I have to give credit where credit is due. The illustration is by Rebecca Watkins (WOW!) and the graphic design is by Kara Watkins (WOW!) I think my sister said it best when she said “Just looking at the cover makes me want to buy it!” I am so amazed with the talent and expertise that these two women have put towards helping my dream come true! What is even better is I will have the original painting hanging in my living room! It seemed that Rebecca couldn’t have placed the things in the painting any better for Kara to situate the title and catch phrase and the author’s (that is ME!!!) name! **giggling**
To see the fruit of your labor and recognize that you are a probably less than two weeks from uploading the files so that all your friends and family (and many I do not know from all over the world) can see and read what you have been working so hard on is overwhelming! I got my first glimpse of the cover when I opened an email while waiting with a good friend for our meal at a restaurant. Ok, I admit I was on a date. I think I giggled so much that he thought my drink had been spiked! I couldn’t resist . . . After 20 minutes of oohing and aweing at the cover, I simply had to hug someone! Poor guy ended up getting a huge full bodied hug just as the food was arriving! Perhaps he was hoping for more than a hug, who knows! But I can tell you I squealed and laughed and clapped my hands as if it was Christmas and I still believed that Santa ate the cookies I had set out for him! He really is real! The cookies are gone! It really is real! Mr. Darcy’s Promise really will be published!
