I have been attending a lot of on-line webinars during this quiet period. I have been inspired by them to both stretch in new ways and try new methods to bring my work to the attention of others. We never stop learning and should never, ever stop exploring. When you stop trying you stop growing and that in a way is an early death, something I never want to do. My Dad taught me that education is an ongoing part of life. He was still trying new things toward the end of his life which inspires me to keep stretching myself. I have never been afraid of trying new things. I do get nervous about others reaction to these attempts but that should not stop you. Keep trying, keep exploring and try things that are scary to you. That is the lust of life.
One of the changes that are afoot is for my novel, Fantasy Time Inc. I am going to change the book cover and update the inside too. It will be a better book when I get through with it. So It will be pulled at the end of my contract with my publisher to come back beautiful, shiny and even better than before. Here is the new cover, let me know what you think?
