So sorry to have left this for so long! I didn't realize the question was here.

I did just keep pounding out query letters until I found my match. There was a first novel out there that never quite caught, so Three Graves Full was actually the second book I'd written, first to get picked up.

All the best to you and your work! Thank you for the kind words.(less)

Kimberly! I am so sorry. I don't get notifications of questions here and I had no idea that you'd asked it.

So the original artwork, with the ribbon and the rings, is for the hardcover. It's gorgeous. I loved it. They only ever did one cover design and I was on board with no suggestions.

But a review that came up for Monday's Lie had them rethink it. The reviewer loved the book (yay!) but he thought that the cover looked too exclusively like women's fiction, which, he noted, the book was not.

So the people over at Gallery saw this review and decided to do a redesign for the paperback release.

That cover is also gorgeous. I love it.

But they sent me a big, beautifully mounted poster of it and it's too creepy to actually hang in my office. I can't figure out what to do with it. : )

The Mind Half-Empty or Half-Full: A Tale of Aphantasia

[image error]

 

I saw a post on Facebook where someone had come across the term “aphantasia”. It’s the label for the phenomenon of not seeing images in the mind. An estimated 1 – 3% of the population have limited or no experience at all of mental pictures.

The meme was expressing dismay (and the comments, a deep sadness) over all that aphantasiacs must be missing. This post was specifically im...

“Most nightmares are caged in their realm by implausibilities. The sleeper slogs through quicksand in a fun house of frightening nonsense and disjointed mumbo jumbo. But everything’s all better once the bedside lamp is back on, because reality, even when it’s bad, is easily distinguished from night terror. Except for the trying-to-scream dream. That one’s pretty much spot-on.”
Jamie Mason

“If home is where the heart is, Jason has lived in his throat for a long time.”
Jamie Mason

“Guilt wears track shoes. Sprint, marathon, or cross-country, it doesn’t matter. It runs tireless to catch you, and it carries a sledgehammer.”
Jamie Mason
