It’s evening, and the tips of the Japanese maple outside my window are dancing in a gentle breeze. It’s been a wild June with days of high temperatures followed by days of relief brought on by the coastal marine layer. Ninety-two degrees in Sebastopol today, but, not to worry, Fourth of July usually finds us sprawled on blankets and bundled up to watch the fireworks at Analy High School. The book cover for my novel is complete. The art work is eye-catching. I hope the book reads as well as the cover looks. Have a happy Independence Day!!
