Book Cover Design

I'm lining up promotions, etc. for THE BRIDE'S BASKET, on Sale November 1. It is the 3rd of the series and I suggest reading them in order. You'll be seeing this graphic a lot. :) An author can do much of their own pointers when working with a book designer, or doing their own work, which I sometimes do, too.

I am extremely proud of these covers as I helped choose the stockphotos, layouts and those are my baskets on the cover and spine of the paperbacks, THE BASKET MAKER'S WIFE (Free for a limited time) and THE EGG BASKET now 2.99 for a limited time. One of the best things you can do to help an author is to leave those reviews and to share the love with your friends. Do leave reviews, please? Thank you.


My Basket Series has had to wait, and I am so pleased with it, typically labeled romantic women's fiction.  

ABOUT cover design. I use many of my own ideas, whether a designer does the covers or I do. So I have a lot of stuff, including those baskets.

Also many things reside in my garage, including this handmade walnut cradle. I'm dying to use it on The Cowboy and the Cradle's new cover. (Remember THE TALLCHIEF SERIES, 9 or 11 of them? Very popular.) I hunted all over stockphotos, just as I did when looking for the right baskets for the book designer. (Thank you, I've got the cowboy picked out. I used lemon oil polish and the cradle polished right up. I may put a quilt in it or--

Wait a minute! Why don't you send ideas of what to put in this cradle? CLICK HERE.

AND PLEASE, please leave reviews? They help so much!

I'm set to do a lot of Contests, Giveaways, etc. for THE BRIDE'S BASKET (3) a November release. More in my NEWSLETTER.

Check Out: Excerpts from THE EGG BASKET Book 2.

Meanwhile, here's a brand new cover for MIDNIGHT RIDER. 


Hannah Ferguson is back in Jasmine, Wyoming, and rancher Dan Blaylock is so ready. She’s ruined him for other women and now she and her ranch are under Dan's financial thumb. But Hannah isn’t the teenage girl who once wanted him, an older man. She’s a contrary, sexy redhead, and determined to stand on her own feet, despite the odds stacked against her. 
     While Dan’s set to have his fire-woman, she’s not that easy, set on her own path—desperate to find answers from the past. 

Yet neither can deny the fire between them....

Meaning of Fall Season

To me, the meaning of fall season translates to color, Thank You Lord for cooler weather, and doing the things I like best.

I'll be out, driving around in the fall color, taking lots of fall season pictures. Fall in the Ozarks should be gorgeous this year, with all the rain. The oak trees turn to a bright yellow orange.

This shot is of persimmons. There is a persimmon tree in my neighborhood and the deer love them--so do skunks. :)

Inside the fleshy pulp (some people harvest these for jam or pies) is a seed. When split, this seed reveals the coming winter, mild or hard. If the image inside the seed is of a fork, the winter will be mild. If it is a spoon, the winter will be hard--I guess this signifies hard shoveling? :)

According to my neighbor who read this somewhere, this seed is 85% correct in predictions. This year, the seeds are spoons. So a hard winter.

To celebrate Fall season colors, I just designed a new personal Facebook Banner, but hope you check out my CAIT LONDON BOOKS page and LIKE it? I'm planning promo now, including giveaways and contests and hopefully--parties. My ENEWSLETTER will have MORE.

I am so looking forward to the launch of The Bride's Basket in November. All of this Basket Series contains my life's elements: children, friends, crocheting, etc.
But today, it's all about The Bride's Basket. I hope you've read the first two in the series.

Please do join my ENEWSLETTER for more information on what I'm doing? The Alpha Readers are coming in with great reviews for The Bride's Basket, a November release.
