Thanks to Everyone for Their Comments on the Cover, ANNIE’S STORY: BLESSED WITH A GIFT! (I didn’t select either one of them … This is the final!)

Annie lives in her own world. She talks to the animals and faeries. Quoted from ANNIE'S STORY: BLESSED WITH A GIFT--
Annie lives in her own world. She talks to the animals and faeries. Quoted from ANNIE’S STORY: BLESSED WITH A GIFT–“Annie is an enigma.”

I am so thankful and overwhelmed by the helpful comments and suggestions I received on my blog, facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and emails regarding the cover for my book, “Annie’s Story: Blessed With A Gift.” This has been a difficult task for me because in many ways, I am Annie. Therefore, I’m way too close to be objective.

This is a version of the very first cover and a dozen tries later I have come back to it because it shows what Annie sees and how her mind works.

From the FOREWORD:

“… Annie was mentally slow, stunted in growth, and lacking in social and emotional development… Annie couldn’t read or write, … but … was an incredible savant, reciting songs, rhymes, recipes, and medicinal incantations… She was a natural [telepathic and white light] healer, blessed with a special gift from the Spiritual Universe.”

Coming in early 2016, I will share precious Annie with all of you.

    1. Thank you, Carol. It’s the spiritual energy I want to show with Annie. Have you ever worked with an agent? I haven’t in a long time. Any recommendations? I think this book needs more promo than I know how to do.

      1. I never worked with an agent. The books which I got published through a traditional publishing house were picked up by the house itself. But that was in the early 90’s and it was for academic books which are now out of print.
        I know what you mean about getting promo. It’s tough when you try o do it on your own. There’s so much competition out there. I wish you all the best in finding an incredible agent who will do handstands for your novel. 🙂

      2. Thank you, Carol. I haven’t worked with an agent since the early 90’s either, and the game has changed considerably! I’m looking at an online agent referral group (aar) and of course, the bible for fiction, “The Writer’s Digest”. Been using that since the 80s. Now I’m showing my age, darling.
