The last seven days has been another one of those periods where it feels like long-gestating projects are making big leaps into being. It’s exciting, but it’s also a little dizzying, as I try to keep track of it all.
My Letter to Fear (Essays on life, love and the search for Prince Charming) appears to have a cover, and I’m waiting on the book proof to arrive, as I type. I should probably stop waiting for the post because it isn’t technically due here until Thursday, but now that I know it is coming, I can’t help myself. I know that it wasn’t the favorite cover for some of you, but it’s the one that worked the best. And now I know exactly which cover I want should my next book be women’s fiction. For those of you who didn’t stay obsessed with the process like I did, here is the mock-up of the book (the actual book is a paperback with a much skinnier spine, but you’ll get the idea).
That’s me on the back of the book. It’s an actual picture of me on the book. That idea took a little getting used to. I was actually pretty good with me not appearing on the book, but there I am. It feels a bit more real now, which might explain the nervous energy going through my body at the moment.
As we’re in the midst of color correction for the series, we thought we’d release some of the fun improvs that we did while filming the speed date sequences. The first one up is with Kevin Railsback. In real life, he’s a charming, lovely man. In this clip, well… let’s just say it isn’t surprising that Kate is a bit flummoxed by him. Enjoy the bonus footage!
