I changed the cover photo on my Facebook author page. I did this because I found a few images that reminded me of The Glass Wives, if not exactly, then sort of. My plan is that leading up to the launch of my novel I’ll change these photos several times, whenever my internet travels present images that hit me as relevant. Nothing specific, no spoilers, nothing given away, just the tone of the book, the essence of the characters — what’s important, and even what may be something minor. Because nothing in a novel is in it accidentally and everything has a purpose. Every cup of coffee, every child’s soccer game, every cookie, every foray online, every hug.
Ok, the photo of the coffee and cake has a little green garnish and there are no garnishes in my novel. Hey, no one’s perfect.
Let me know what the images make you think of — what the photos say to you. And if you haven’t “liked” me on Facebook, I think you get like gazillion good karma points if you do. Or something like that.
I’m in the throes of college move-in, and will be here with a post soon about how college move-in day is like writing a novel. Because it is!
