Thinking about covers

I’ve been plowing through revisions — at least until a nasty cold combined with covering for a colleague’s vacation stopped me in my tracks. So I used my foggy morning to fiddle with cover ideas for All That Is Necessary. I’ve got several rough ideas up. Any feedback on which ones you like best (or hate most) and why would be great. The big question: Would any of them make you pick the book up off the shelf?


Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge: Week 21

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for this week’s Story Cubes Challenge. When I was a kid, this would always be the first day of school, but down here in Virginia, the kids went back two weeks ago. If you’re a teacher and you’re using the Story Cubes Challenge in your classroom, I’d love to hear what your experience has been.

Just a reminder: Please post a link to your challenge response in comments so we can all see how different people tackle the same prompt. Happy writing!
