Like so many people across the planet, we’ve been discovering new ways to keep ourselves entertained in a Covid-19 world where we haven’t been able to just nip outside or go see friends, or watch or play sport.
Authors too have found it a strange old time. For many of us, for me, the muse dried up in February and March. I couldn’t write for weeks because the headlines were so dire, and I was buried in fear of what might happen and what was happening, fear for family, jobs, friends. Here in Australia compared with other parts of the world, I’ve felt relatively safe.
When a hashtag started up called #RecreateABookCover, many of my author friends and stablemates with Harlequin MIRA and Harper Collins jumped on board. It’s a little bit scary just how much fun I had with this idea… and it’s amazing how many hours and days my boys and I filled delving for just the right piece of LEGO in the kids LEGO drawer…
First I made my newest book, LAST BRIDGE BEFORE HOME. But then when that wasn’t enough, I got inspired to create the other two stories in the Chalk Hill Series and before I knew it, I had an entire set.
Then, my hubby and the boys framed my effort for a Mother’s Day present. Soon, I’ll hang my wee frame in my writing room for inspiration.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope you’re happy and safe.
