"Sister Mysteries" is Ready for Editing
Do you speak fluent Spanish? I am looking for someone to translate passages in my new novel, Sister Mysteries.
My friend Nina read it. She knows enough Spanish to say that I REALLY need help making the Spanish sound authentic.
I would, of course, compensate the translator!
Here, this evening, the novel is sitting in my new perennial garden at our lovely new home.
I am so delighted to have finished this novel, which took me -- are you ready? 22 years!
When I started writing it, in January of 1995, I was 42 years old. I had no idea it would take me half that lifetime to produce this book. My first novel, Dreaming Maples, took six years. My second novel, Seeing Red, took me about SIX WEEKS!
This goes to show you there is no accounting for what happens with art!
I am toying with the idea of using the image below, which I painted several years ago, as the cover art for the novel. I would love to hear your thoughts on this choice. BE HONEST!!
