August slipped away on me, and I didn’t manage to post anything. It’s funny that even in a pandemic when the days blur with sameness, summer flies by as always.
I’ve been working on a new novel and neglecting the finishing touches on a book I completed in 2019. So I have scolded myself and started designing the book cover, the only part of finishing touches I truly enjoy.
Apparently we do judge books by their covers, so I’ve designed three of them—shown below. Maybe I’m too close to see, but I can’t decide which is best. It would be an enormous help if you’d take a minute and vote for the cover you like the most.
Just reply to this e-mail and indicate #1, #2, or #3.
The back cover blurb that follows will give you a taste of the book.
At some point, every adoptee seeks their true identity. For Halca Visser it happens later in life than most—at age thirty-three, when she’s diagnosed with a genetic skin disorder. That’s the year her world gets a makeover. She meets Leandro, a gypsy musician from Spain. He and the members of his band are brown-skinned like her, and because of them her passion and talent for singing emerges. A detective in Holland uncovers details of her birth, and she must pursue a trail of clues to find her legitimate family. She breaks ties with her fake Caucasian mother, and unearths a secret her adoptive parents share, facts about Halca’s origin they’ve never told.
