I actually had some time to wind down this week, which was really nice for a change. I’m celebrating:

  1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug extended edition! It arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I finally had a chance to watch it.
  2. The cover design for my upcoming fantasy novel is almost done!
  3. Thanksgiving vacation from school! My brother and his family are coming up again from PA, so we’ll be spending a few days with them.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

What other celebrations are going on out there?

  1. Hi Lori. Having time wind down is a blessing all alone! I haven’t seen this Hobbit yet. Can’t wait to see your new cover. I miss when I can’t get with family. I hope you have a lovely time. Happy Thanksgiving and have a great weekend.


  2. Yay for vacations and new cover designs! The Desolation of Smaug was my favorite out of all the Hobbit and LoTR series. Love that dragon! Have a lovely weekend! 🙂


  3. Ah, time for winding down…I don’t think I’m going to get that until the Christmas holidays. Sigh. I’m excited this week because I have two posts coming up shortly in other publications. 🙂 Enjoy your time with your family, Lori!


    • Since I’m publishing the book myself through my own imprint, I get the final say on the cover. The designer and I have been working together throughout the process, both contributing ideas and images. I’m really happy with the final design.
