Sunday Fun—New Bookmark

As promised on Thursday, here’s my new bookmark for Firefighter Daddy (July 2010), set in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. The designer added a couple of subtle light-blue flowers to some of the polka dots on the front.

I won’t see the cover art for quite a few months, so I gave the designer a brief description of the heroine and her van, and this is what he came up with.

What do you think?

I absolutely love it!

As always, if you’d like me to send a bookmark to you, please send your mailing address to :

Happy holidays!

Thanks, Marin! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Firefighter Daddy gets as yummy a cover as A Cowboy Christmas ;)

Yes, Sheryll, he did a great job. It's like he can get inside my head, see what I'm imagining, and then make it a hundred times better!
