Jodi Sketch

Hey, guys. I've decided that my emotional exhaustion might mean I need a break from writing for a few weeks. I don't plan on staying away from it completely, but I'm taking the pressure off, because I've been so tired this week. I want to focus more on coming up with new ideas and thinking about which stories I might want to start after my main three are done. But I did want to share this sketch, that my very talented friend, Mallory, created of Jodi from Dreaming in Shadow. I've asked her to do my cover, and I already love what she's made for me.



I really see Jodi in this sketch. Mallory has been there with me through the whole process of Dreaming in Shadow's creation (in fact, you could say she's a big reason why this story exists at all), and even though she still hasn't read a lot of my newest version, I believe she knows these characters better than anyone besides me. I can't wait to see more of what she will create for me, but I've told her not to worry about getting anything major done right now. After all, it will still be quite a while before the book will truly be done.
