Messing with Memoir – Cover reveal time!

May 23, 2022

Oh, heart be still! Today I received—by United States Priority Mail—the cover (and contents) of my memoir to be released this summer. (I have to proof the contents one more time.)

An author always holds her or his breath to receive the book cover—and in most cases, authors have little to no voice in what the artist or designer or publisher decides on. I was able to feed in some ideas, of course, and that’s normal, but the cover was in her hands.

And I like it!! I know my siblings will like it even if the egg basket we used on the farm is nothing like the fancy fun basket used on this cover.

And ta da: Here it is.

My tenth (and final??) book!

I told the designer at the publishing house that I was good with it!

Plus, the young woman on the front is about 40 years younger so: no wrinkles! And if you peer closely, you may nod and say “Oh yes, I used to use a regular typewriter like that!”

And now, it’s your turn to say what you think. Love it or not, I think this will be the final cover.

What do you think of it? Does it communicate?

Does it look interesting? Do the eggs make you wonder—what?

Comment on Facebook or right here if you prefer! I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Your cover is picture perfect, Melodie. It’s like poetry, distilling the main themes. Well done!

    Can’t wait to read it! Of course I know what the egg basket is all about!! Yur sis Nancy

  4. You are very loyal! Love you.
