A week from now, Ecotones will be available for purchase and backers’ various rewards will be nestled lovingly in their ebook readers, bringing them warm, fuzzy, seasonal pleasure. Normally at this point in a thinly-disguised promotional spiel, I’d plaster images of the cover art all over the place — and that is still going to happen, sort of, just in a slightly different form.
Two of the project’s backers who happen to know me in the real world have been away on holiday since the summer, courageously leaving their house plants to my tender mercies (all of which survived, by the way, and it would look pretty bad for an eco-anthology editor if not). They have now returned… with a gift intended to say both “thank you” and “congratulations”:
It’s the mark of a good cover that it works well on a t-shirt, right? I’ll spare you all a picture of me actually wearing it, though, I don’t want to ruin the impression!
Thanks for the new threads, Patty and Lee — and, since I have everyone else’s attention (who knows about my blog at least), why not take a look at Patty’s site: her YA novel won an award earlier this year, and she has a cool, colourful children’s book out as well.
Seven days and counting…
