Cover Page Penny, Miss Penny speaking. I’m teasing I like to be glamorous and as my author boss has been playing with book covers all week I thought I’d look
good on a cover too. What do you think? You have no idea the lengths Susan goes to get just the right cover. Psst! She’s a bit obsessional, I think they all look good. Now, this is very confusing for a dog, because Susan kept saying she was going down a rabbit hole. What! She’s a bit chubby for that and rabbit holes are in the park not the laptop. Susan insists. Her rabbit hole is scrolling through millions of stock photos. I don’t get it, people are very strange. And, get this, after hours of scrolling, nothing, a few possibles. Very, very boring!
Today we made progress, probably because I was on Susan’s lap helping and we were watching a video about book covers. Psst! Do you have any idea how many people live in Susan’s laptop? We don’t get visitors because of this Covid thing, they all moved to Laptop City. As long as Susan doesn’t move to Laptop City, I’m okay. Phew, now that’s a horrible thought. Oh, the evil eye, I’d better get back to author stuff. Intense and tedious re-writes this week on Heart of Sophie’s War and as mentioned the covers but nothing has been decided, so I’m guessing we’ll be scrolling down the rabbit hole again.
