It’s been a busy couple of weeks here in the mountains. Summer is in full swing (saw the first lightning bugs last night!) and Christy and I have been making revisions (nothing drastic, thank heavens!) to the Whistling Woman e-book and print files. Whew! So glad that’s done!

We’ve also been getting ready for the Bluff Mountain Festival in Hot Springs on June 13th. This is our favorite yearly event because it takes us back to our favorite little mountain town. We particularly enjoy seeing friends we’ve met in the past and catching up with them. We also love meeting all the new readers. It’s a wonderful festival with many lovely arts and crafts and fabulous blue grass music so if you’re in the area, come on by. We’d love to meet you!

Added to that, we’ve been busy scheduling a couple of other events we’ll attend this summer and we’ve found a new one in the fall, Octoberfest in Old Fort! We’ve wanted to do something in Old Fort ever since Moonfixer came out but somehow kept missing all their festivals. But not this year!

And mixed in with all that, we have a new cover to show you. Yep, that’s right, our awesome cover designer, Kimberly Maxwell, has revamped the Whistling Woman cover and it’s gorgeous!

Here’s the full flat for the print book:

And the e-book cover:

And finally, the audio book cover

Aren’t they beautiful? Kim, did a fantastic job, as usual! The picture on the front is, of course, the same picture of Miss Cordy that we used for the original cover and the small picture leaning against it is of Mama (Lucinda), Papa (John) and Bessie when she was about one year old. Since the color theme for this one is a brick red, Kim used another one of Daddy’s paintings on the back of some apples in a basket.

The new cover is now up on Amazon for the e-book and hopefully, the paper back and the audio will be up in  the next couple of days. Needless to say, we love the new cover! What do you think?
