And a cover is born ...

The cover of String Bridge is finally here! I'm so excited. And I'm so in love with it. And guess who illustrated it? Janice! The publisher of Lucky Press! Thanks a million, Janice, you've done a remarkable job. I know many of you commented on the photo on Facebook, but when I received it last night it was almost midnight and really needed to go to bed ... anyway ... tada!

  1. I wonder if Picasso's The Blue Guitar was a source of inspiration? I like it, clean and simple.
