A sneak peek at my book's cover!

Last fall, I mentioned here that my writing path has been circuitous and unpredictable, but that it led me to writing this book:

The Rosary: keeping company with Jesus and Mary, soon to be published by Servant Books.

It's a little book about what the Rosary is, what it isn't, and how to more effectively fit the prayer into your day.

While the book is already listed on Amazonit's not actually available for shipment yet (but, I couldn't wait any longer to share this cover design with you.)

The release will be in May, the month of Mary.

Karen, I am so delighted and excited for you!!! The cover is beautiful (I especially like it as I have that same rosary!) and I just know the contents will be as beautiful, considering the thoughtfulness and humour with which you write here. I look forward to reading it :-)

Karen, what happy news. The cover is beautiful. And I had no idea you were busy writing a book. Wow! Congratulations. I will never forget the day I received, by email, a jpeg of my first book cover. It's too exciting not to share. Glad you did!

Now I know what to get my daughter for a late birthday present, and myself for a late birthday present, and my lit kid for a confirmation present, and my other lit kid for a graduation present.

This is SO exciting. Congratulations!

Congrats! Just curious if you feature any information on online rosaries (such as the video rosary at www.comepraytherosary.org) in your book? I find these a fascinating way to reach the masses.
