Cover Reveal and ABNA news . . .

Available on Amazon
Here's the new cover for The Mermaid Quilt & Other Tales . . . just for the Kindle version. 

I'm kind of excited this morning, and having a little difficulty in concentrating on the editing. Here's the background on the cover. The Mermaid Quilt was my first self-published collection of short stories and poetry. I used an off-the-shelf cover from CreateSpace because I couldn't figure out how to make something dazzling. This brand new cover comes from Angie Zambrano at pro-ebookcovers; her work is available through    

So what do you think? 

Have you heard of ABNA, the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Entries ended once 10,000 would-be writers entered or by March 2, whichever came first. The next step: 400 writers from 5 categories (or 2,000 writers) are selected by March 18 to advance to the next round.

Here's the update: Announced today, my Years of Stone (follow-up novel to Standing Stones) has advanced to the next round in the General Fiction category, there not being a historical fiction category this year. 

Whoopee! I think it's time for a cup of coffee. Then maybe I can turn to that revision that's waiting on my desk.

May your writing and reading day go well!


  1. Wow, Beth! That's tremendous news. How exciting! Congrats. Oh - the new cover is gorgeous, as well. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I've bookmarked your blog and will be dropping by more often, too. Keep up the good work! :)

  2. I LOVE the cover! It is positively beautiful! So glad you found someone that could create something you are happy with.

  3. Thank you, Morgan! Now I have to figure out how to get the cover changed on CreateSpace and Kindle . . .
