2.PoS-eBook-cover-1-copy First a little note about my new cover. I decided to change the cover of The Price of Silence. Many people have told me that the book deserved a better cover. They felt the one I had wasn’t spooky enough; that it needed to be more sinister-looking to reflect on what was going on in the book. So here it is. What do you think?

My second draft is back from the editor. There are fewer correctional comments than in the first draft. This time he pokes deeper, challenges me for more detailed psychological reasons as to why specific characters do this or that.

“What do you mean by that?  Need more explanation here, too much left out.  So why have they decided to look for it?  Unclear who this is. Why does he have this info? 

Once in a while he throws me a bone: ”I LOVE that!  That’s funny.  Love the instant characterization without the character even being there.”

I frame those.

The good thing about editing is that when I’ve done the revisions, it reads so much better than it did before, which is encouraging, but this is a looong process. There will be more drafts to write…

Thanks everyone for signing up for this monthly taste of my writing world. And an extra big Thank You to everyone who responds. I love to hear from you! It’s so nice to know that I’m not just talking to myself.

    Beautiful landscape and ugly underworld — that sums up too much of our world — clashes and fallout. What a take you have Ulla

    Does such an evil face actually belong to a body? It’s very dramatic and stormy. Good. Of course I must find something to criticize , so – at first glance ‘he’ appears to be “blowing an ill wind” and then before one notices the hand in the water it looks like he has ectoplasm flowing from within. The hand seems to be too hidden in the water thereby accentuating the finger.

    Just silly criticisms but you asked! xooooo

    I do like it – scary – just may buy another copy!

    Ah-h! Even in beauty there is danger! Good choice, Ulla.
