Anyway, I also ran into an old friend who is willing to do the cover of a novel. She is willing to do it for free, that gem of a human being. She actually already drew something I love using her ex's make-up. It looked haunted with faded colors and perfect for this piece, so I am going to send her the story link when I and done editing and revising. Who knows, she may be an ideal reader too! (I haven't asked my other friend. I will, soon. Been kind of embarrassed to do so.)
Here's to more writing highs and friends who make time for you.
