Cover Reveal: TOUCH

There's a lot going on in my life right now. I've been living in my new house for a month, I just got back from Chicago, I'm working on finishing the first draft of Reflections as fast as I possibly can, I did a photoshoot last week, I'm booking editing clients for March and April already--basically, I'm busy, but that shouldn't surprise anyone. I'm doing what I love and I couldn't be more pleased.

While I was in Chicago last week, I had the opportunity to see two excellent plays, Cocked and Cabaret. These productions entertained me, made me think, and rekindled my love for theatre (not that it had been dormant or anything, as you can attest to if you've seen my Hamilton fangirling). More importantly, they made me realize how much I want to see my play Touch (which you can read for free here) produced someday. Of course, the next step is getting it published.

I'm tweaking the play again to make sure it's how I like it. I've also gone ahead and created a new cover for it, which I'm thrilled to share with all of you today. It's not as exciting as a novel, but it's still pretty big, yeah? Keep scrolling to check it out!

TA-DA!

Cover Reveal: TOUCH

I still can't believe I designed this bad boy myself. Actually, I can't believe I designed it myself and am happy with the results. It took a lot of time for me to find something I felt reflected (there's that word again) the overall tone of the play, and I think I found a winner. If you've read the play already, you'll definitely have to let me know if you agree.

As I'm still revising the play (again), I don't have a full-fledged synopsis for you yet. Nevertheless, here's the tagline:

In a world in which physical touch is illegal, one young woman seeks to discover what all the fuss is bout.

It's mostly just a premise, but I hope to have an eloquent, in-depth synopsis out with the polished product. Here's a little excerpt to tide you over if you want to wait to read the whole play until it's been published:

CURED: You can’t keep it.

SEEKER: Why not?

CURED: We’ve been over this. Too dangerous.

SEEKER: I keep it in the house. No one besides you and me has ever seen it.

CURED: That doesn't mean they never will. [She sits down beside the SEEKER.]It all starts with thinking. Then writing. Then the next thing you know, you're embracing a hug dealer and trying to explain to the police that you stumbled and he caught you--which, by the way, did not work for me.

SEEKER: Mother, that won't happen.

CURED: You don’t know that.

SEEKER: I’m not you.

So, yes! Big things are happening every day over here! In the coming months, I expect some even bigger things to materialize, and I can't wait to share every part of my journey with all of you. Thanks again for the support, encouragement, and motivation. I love you all so much.

You rock. Never change.
