Passion's Pride: The Passion Series
5 days! Five more long days of torture to wait. No matter how many times I've done it, I'm still like a little kid waking on Christmas morning and seeing my very own special present, my cover, for the very first time. Only a little more dramatic..
I stare at it in awe, with my mouth gaping wide open in amazement. Then zoom in close, cocking my head slightly off to one side to catch it out of the corner of my eye for that "different view" feel to it, and repeat with the other side, but squint a little tighter. Sometimes I even nod my head up and down to absolutely no one except the computer screen until I can no longer contain the excitement.
At this point, a severe case of BNMS (blubbering new mommy syndrome) kicks in. I begin typing squeee's and woo hoo's of approval to the graphic gods for giving me such talented artists and their greatness-ness. I need them to know how much I am truly touched by their awesomeness and show my undying love for it and the love I have for them too. It's really an emotional moment. I mean, who wouldn't love the surrogate mom to their book baby, right? After all, these kinds of things don't just create themselves, do they now? There was no osmosis going on here, it was my graphics artist's ability to go old school style with it and put in their time, a lot of sweat, and blood (I'm positive there was blood) and tears too, that's hard work, but they're into it. Without Rue Volley and Karrie Jax, I'd just have a big wrinkled up wad of words to stare at. But they save me and give me a precious & beautiful bundle of joy.
I have to practically gnaw through my own tongue to keep quiet, until it's time. Well, guess what? On Saturday, the 15th, just 5 more days, the moment finally arrives. At 6:00 p.m., CDT, it will be time to show it off. That beautiful cover. Here's how it works if you haven't been to one before.

I'm purposely NOT giving out any hints on the cover model, but I will tell you that he is a super, I mean super huge sweetheart and completely down to earth. And perfect to represent this last story in The Passion Series. Sparky (Serge) and Ash's story. And, that's all you get from me on that note. My lips are sealed.
Okay, now I have something to ask you. (see how I did that, changed the topic.? ~ducks, and runs like hell to avoid any objects you might have the sudden urge to hurl in my general direction~
Did you like last weeks announcement? This one?
That's Tayte, the Mother Freaking OMG, Hanson right there. Did you notice that? Just trying to keep you on your toes, spice up the routine & keep you guessing a bit. I know my poor phone damn near exploded from notifications coming in. It was extremely hard to sit on that one. Ummm. . .yeah.
Mmmm. . .hmmm! Wait, what? What the hell was I saying again? It was hard, noooo, no it was not hard. (get those minds out of the gutter, bring mine with you) It was difficult. I say, I say. . .it was difficult dammit, to keep something that huge under wraps. Oh God! Shoot me now. No. Nothing was hard or huge or wrapped. Shame on you! If any of you feel the need to investigate Tayte a little further, I just wanted to let you know it's perfectly normal. Women of all ages, ALL ages do it. A lot, really a lot, or so I hear. I do have a link I suppose I could let you peek at, but I'm telling you now, you better be on your best behavior. I mean it. Don't make me jump in and start kicking floozie asses all over twitter now. I'm from
Texas, and we pitch and throw all kinds of stuff around here. Just read the sidebar up towards the top. it tells you. So here you go ladies: https://twitter.com/taytestagteam
Okay, well, moving on. Just a show of hands is needed, but how many of you did this?
I knew it. Window lickers! ATTENTION-WE HAVE WINDOW LICKERS IN THE PLAYHOUSE! And how did I know this about you, you ask? Well, because I just happened to be near mine licking out, I mean looking out and. . . . just never mind. Forget it, I never saw nothing. (jump all over that one Grammar Nazi)
So, come on yall, let's make a deal, you're the next contestant-ops, got that one all kinds of wrong. I'm a bit flustered, so let's make an agreement with each other. Come on over to the cover reveal on Saturday night, bring your naughty licking tongues with you (believe me, you're so going to need them when you see the cover) and I'll even supply the windows. Bet? Okay good. See you then.
Sorry about that, I knew I was forgetting something important.
