So, even though I said I made up my mind about the collection Down South where the Water is Warm, which I am self-publishing, I wasn't entirely convinced I wanted to split the serious from the "non" serious section. Part of the reason I wanted them together was to fuck with genre conventions and also because getting another book cover is like finding a unicorn in the alley.
Well, I love the image above my sister painted, but what I thought about doing was publishing the second cover in black and white and adding a macabre twist in color. I think my artist and writer friend Marcy Rae Henry is up to the challenge. She can channel her lingering angry energy at her ex.
Also, I posted more of The Harvest, but I went back to the previous Ashley section. Writing mysteries is pretty hard, so that will be that. Once that mystery is solved, on to the novel. I like plot twists though, no doubt a lingering effect from reading so many Goosebumps as a child, but writing mysteries is hard.
Honor your AHA moments today. #Resist.
