Book Cover Photo Shoot

yemaya4Our 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!

    The sunrise is beautiful. I am sure the cover will be fantastic. Best wishes for a productive week. And happy birthday!

  2. Age is a number, enjoy the chocolate cake. 😉 Happy Belated Birthday. I agree with Chris, the pic would make a good cover.

  3. I’ve been warming up 47 for you since the end of July. It’s a lot like 46, but a year wiser, stronger, and better! =)

    Lovely images, and exciting progress! And I’m curious if this would be one of those conferences I’d know from that intersection point in our lives….

    Enjoy your birthday, your time away, and your progress!

  4. Glad to hear the photo session went well and hope your birthday party turns/turned out well. Sounds like you’re having an exciting week.
