Our book cover photo shoot yesterday morning was a huge success! We got to the beach just before sunrise, and got a lot of really excellent pictures over the next hour or so. I can’t reveal the covers just yet – in one case, because Goddess Awakening: The Rise of the Feminine Divine doesn’t come out for another week, and in another case, because we haven’t finished it yet (since The Heart of the Goddess isn’t being published until November). I can, however, share this image from my phone, just to give you a little taste of what’s to come. What a gorgeous sky, huh? The purple orbs or refractions captured on my camera won’t show up on the book covers, but I think they’re kind of cool.
As for the book content, Goddess Awakening is nearly ready. Editing is almost complete. I finished the introduction and acknowledgement sections yesterday. I’m making good progress on The Heart of the Goddess draft, too. I’m now at 91,320 words on the way to 120K or so. I probably won’t finish before the end of the Round, but I’ve built in some extra time, so it’ll all work out fine.
Here are my mini-goals for this week:
- send all marketing copy, links, and promo photos to Goddess Awakening contributors
- finish preparing for the conference we’re attending in a week
- make final preparations for the online workshop we’re offering on Wednesday
- get ahead on blogging (because we’ll be gone at the conference for a week)
I’ll also be celebrating my 47th birthday with family and friends (and chocolate cake, yum!) this week. I hope you have a really fun and productive week!
