"She was an unknown legend in her time."

This time yesterday it was 75˚F. Today it's 59˚F. Yesterday was warm. Today is not. But we have sun.

Day before yesterday, I managed to write 977 words on something called "Three Kisses," which is, in theory, hopefully, the retelling of "The Snow Queen" that I'm supposed to have finished by June 1, the best writing day I've had since April 25th, when I finished "Dancy Vs. the Pterosaur."

And here, behind the cut, is the cover of, Fată Înecându-Se, the Romanian language edition of The Drowning Girl: A Memoir*. It's a homely thing, to say the least.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

Subterranean Press
I get the regular ad sheet from Subterranean Press all the time because there are books I buy from them like yours, McCammon, Joe Hill, etc.
I couldn't believe the one I got today for The Silence of The Lambs--if you want it signed by the artist only, it's $150 but if you want it signed by both the author and the artist, it's $1500. I can't see anyone springing for that--but I guess some people are just nuts. I was tempted if it was signed by the author and artist for the Limited Edition but when I saw it was just signed by the artist, I nixed it right away.

The only thing I buy in a nutty manner are Signed books, preferably signed & numbered. Now that I only work as a writer, I have to watch what I spend for sure. I've had to sell a couple of books when money got tight but I always hate to do that. Of course, I can't take them with me but my daughter is an avid reader and I'm hoping to give her a nice collection of books. She can do whatever she wants with them but I really treasure books. I don't buy jewelry or fancy things--books are the big deal in my life. And of course the people I love.

Anyway, just blabbing. Peace

I like that the imprint is "Paladin Black Pocket" ..

I do like the font that the title is in but I'm not sure it really goes with the theme of the book. It seems like something primitive.

Well, whatever. It's not like I know what sells books in Bucharest.

Love that cover, very bold and graphic.
