Amazing Update!

This post isn't about my NaNo word count or the amount of chocolate I've consumed.

It's about the amazingly beautiful drawing the wonderfully talented Natalie Whipple made for me!

This is so beautiful I could cry. Natalie captured Jane and August better than I could have ever expected. I'm even more motivated to finish this novel, as well as think of a title.

I've officially decided (as of right now) to hold a novel-titling contest in December once NaNo is over and I've gotten some sleep. I'll probably also post some excerpts before then, so ya'll can git yer creative juices a flowin'.

Thanks again, Natalie! This makes me unbelievably happy!

Love the picture! And can't wait for the title contest, even though we really suck at titles.

Oooh, sounds interesting!

BTW, I found you through Sara and Natalie's blogs. When she posted that picture and said it was a YA western, I was definitely intrigued.

Looking forward to the title contest--titles are normally the bane of my writing existence so I know how difficult it is to come up with one.

Your novel sounds great. I love the names.
