Cover uncovered

I promised to post Lily the Pink's photo of the cover image of Amigas. The plan is to send the proofs this weekend to be formatted, which means that by the end of July the ebook should be available on Rosa Mira Books.

Our story begins (chronologically — there's more than one way to read it) in 1969, when two teenaged girls, from New Zealand and Argentina, meet while stranded in the airport in Rome. They strike up a friendship and go on to exchange letters from their two countries, into the years of Argentina's dirty war. Forty years later, the threads of their stories are taken up again — in NZ, in Argentina, and in the airport in Rome.

For your weekend entertainment, nothing to do with ebooks:
a nine-year-old English boy producing Monet-like paintings; a brief introduction to particle physicist and ecological wise-woman, Dr Vandana Shiva; and does it really sound like a Cuban dance melody? The music of the Higgs Boson.

Glad that Ratty and Dasychord concluded their picking of the sellotape so the photo could be revealed. Do you have a sense of something remarkable emerging as the book is readied for publication? Keeping company with music of Higgs Boson seems appropriate. These are no ordinary days. xo

Wow, it hadn't occurred to me, Marylinn, that we were in the company of that far-reaching revelation. I hope readers will have fun with our book, at least, and that it won't be quite as hard to pin down as the HB.
