Working on: Chapter 11 of OLT
Listening to: nada. Dh is working from home today and does not appreciate my writing music choices
Reading: A Weaver Wedding - reading time is practically nil this week, :-(
I heart google alerts. Sometimes the coolest things pop up in my inbox and today was one of those days.
One of the questions I get a lot is about book covers. I've had a few that I am "meh" about and a few I love, and Hired: The Italian's Bride is one that I am particularly fond of. I have to admit, in my head I had a picture of Luca and Mari in formal dress on a lovely staircase, but when I saw the cover I was pleased. Especially with Luca. I also loved the mountains in the background.
I've received e-mail asking if I knew who the hero was on the cover, and I have had to answer not a clue - until today. Did I mention I heart google alerts? His name is Robert Nuzzie and he's put the cover up on his blog today! Go on over and have a peek! He does lots of covers - I had fun scrolling through and seeing some of the latest ones he's been on and how his look changes for each one...
I also know who the heroine is - and while her hair is a bit lighter than in the book (which was more of a sable colour) her look works for this cover. Not sure if she has a blog or not, but you can see her profile HERE. Her name is Kyli Knaack and she contacted me some time ago on myspace - cool beans!
Oh and my blog is up at My Friend Amy - all about trading in my jeans and boots for heels and glamour!
In other news, I'm closing in on a decision for naming my eee pc. Some of the ideas have been so funny and inspired. Here are some favourites:
Darcee - need I say more?
In light of my PHS Male on Monday choices - Facinelleee and Danceee (snicker)
My CP suggested Jamieee for Jamie Bamber (man, I could have my hands on him every day)
There was also Manlee and Studlee (another snicker) and one of my Perfect Pitch finalists suggested 9-inch Hoteee (which might take a bit of explaining, hmmm)
Then there's Dobbeee (my own personal slave a la Harry Potter)
And this one made me chuckle: Fabeeeo
You guys were far more inspired than I was, because at first I was tempted to stick with Georgeee (George is so stable and reliable).
Now - decisions decisions!
