The Seed – Cover Reveal!!

The Seed

I’m just finalising the publication details on lulu.com for my first novel – The Seed– so expect some publicity about it all in the next week, and probably over the coming weeks LOL!

In a few days once I’ve really thought through pricing and so forth I’ll put up links to it at lulu.com, then apparently over the next couple of months it will also get distributed through Nook, Apple and other outlets, plus also Amazon as well as lulu for the paperback option. So I’ll keep everyone up to date on progress with global distribution!

In the meantime, this is the wonderful cover they’ve designed for me! I’m too much of a luddite to be able to make it much bigger – this is the jpg they sent me.Β  LOL.Β  But it’s big enough for you to get the general idea I think!Β  πŸ™‚Β  πŸ™‚

The text that describes the book is:

Sara Fraser, a solitary artist, is haunted by her dreams of a past life where she is deeply in loveβ€”a concept and experience foreign to her waking existence. Just as she is becoming known for her artistic endeavors, Sara launches a new series of paintings based on her dreams.

Robert Masters, a journalist in a passionless marriage, interviews Sara about her latest work, only to discover a personal connection to her paintings: it seems he is the man in her dreams. But when Robert, a man who prefers to peer inside others’ lives instead of his own, suddenly finds the intrigue of a possible shared history catapulting him into an intense romance with Sara, a story from the past begins to haunt both of them. As the lovers contemplate leaving the waking world to follow their dreams, the possibility of happiness dictates them to take risks they never could have imagined before.

The Seed is a story of truth, loss, and the price two people must pay for love.

This is all so exciting and new, every step feel like an adventure!!Β  πŸ™‚Β  πŸ™‚Β Β  Thanks to everyone for wise counsel and support along the way!!

CheersΒ Β  Helen

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    Sounds wonderful, Helen! Where can I buy it? I look forward to reading it.

    My children’s book is coming out soon. I will let you know when so you can check it out. Do you have any young children or grandchildren? They will love it! It is about an adorable elephant.

    Best wishes with your book. Cover is great too!!!

    • The Seed is available on lulu.com at the moment. I will also put it on kindle in August, and sometime I September or so it will also be available on Nook and Apple. Lulu has it both as an ebook and a paperback. I’ll be posting the links on the weekend when I get time to do it properly.

      I don’t have children, but I have friends who do, so I look forward to purchasing your book for them (plus also to check it out myself – we’re never really too old to enjoy a good children’s book, after all!!) πŸ™‚

        Thank you for the info. I have a Nook so I can read it there.

        You are so right. We are never too old to read and enjoy children’s books. I do it all the time. It keeps the child inside me alive!
