Eyes Like Mine

Here’s my new cover for my novel Eyes Like Mine. I am really excited about this book since it is truly a beautiful story. And remember all that whining I did about abridging the book and having to cut out HALF the words?

Well, my way cool and incredibly awesome editor decided an abridgement wasn’t necessary. That’s right, folks. I got to keep every word. I know!!! I am so excited (as you can see by my grammatically incorrect coupling of punctuation)! It’s already up on Seagull’s and DB’s websites which just staggers me since I don’t even have my official release date yet.

This has been such an amazing week, I’m not even sure how to process it all. First, I have the storymakers conference which is the highlight of my year, then I get an agent–and not just any agent–but Amy Jameson! Then I get an email from The Ensign magazine offering to buy an article I sent in, and now my cover and news of the no abridgement. I completely endorse the “no word left behind!” program Kirk has placed me on.

Seriously, I have burned so many calories from all the jumping around I’ve been doing.

    HOORAY FOR YOU, JULIE!!! I’m so happy for all your wonderful, good news!! I’ll mirror Kevin and say that you totally deserve it.
    On a side note, your speech about the concrete during the bootcamp was one of the most motivational, uplifting things I’ve ever heard. It’s been in my mind all week and had helped me to remember why I am where I am and what it means to me. Thank you, thank you!
    Now go out there and rock the world, baby!

    You rock (seventeen year old girl). I’m very excited for you.

    I know where all the word cutting went. Kirk told me to cut 30,000 words from my ms and he’s not even my editor. He’s just in my writing group. So I must have been feeling like his ‘mean’ quota was filled. Sooo glad you get to keep your beautiful story intact and I’m kidding about Kirk being mean. He is being very wise and helpful and my ms could use a diet. It’s a little tooo fat at over 100,000 words so I think I’ll live.
    The cover is B U tiful.
    Also I put in a request to join TLA. Wish me luck.

    I’m doing a little jumping for you myself! I’m even more thrilled for your success after meeting you in person and discovering you’re at least twice as lovely as I thought. Congratulations!

  6. Luisa says:

    Wow! Awesome news all around! Now I’m jumping!

  7. Melinda says:

    I’ve been thinking of you all week. I’m so, so, so happy for you. And I really wish we could have hung out at storymaker’s, but my condolence is that YOU were in the right place: landing an agent!!! (It deserves all those punctuation marks and more.) Awesome! I hope some your greatness will rub off onto me….

  8. Melinda says:

    Also, I love your cover and I can’t wait to read it!

    That’s great! I’m sooooo looking forward to it coming out.

  11. Karen says:

    Gorgeous cover! I’ll just say “Amen” to what they said. You so deserve every bit of the success you’re getting. Woo Hoo for Julie!

  12. Josi says:

    I LOVE the cover, and you got an Ensign acceptance? Wahoo, Julie, and might I say no one deserves it like you do. It’s just proof that if you put yourself in the right place and work hard eventually you’ll be in the right place at the right time with the right stuff to offer. Way to go, my friend, I’m so proud of you.

  13. Kate says:

    Congtratulations! Your energy is contagious.

  14. Jenn says:

    Julie, I guess it’s true – you never know where the finish line is. And it looks like yours was a major ‘end zone’ moment, and not just a lame 50-yard-line (while still cool) win. BTW, I sent you an email, but I’m not sure it went through. Let me know if you didn’t get it. Major congratulations all the way around, though!

  15. Stephanie says:

    Love the cover. I’m looking forward to getting a copy.

  16. Janet says:

    I cannot wait to read this, Julie!!! YAY!!!! 🙂

  17. Hannah says:

    Congrats, Julie! And thanks so much again for our chat the other day, as well as all the tips. They have really helped.

  18. Julie (Juc) Boris says:

    It’s late and I should be in bed, but reading this news makes me want to jump up and down and giggle with delight like we were kids again! You are awesome! I’ve always known that. Congratulations on everything… the book cover, not having to edit out half the book, the AGENT!…you rock! You deserve it all and more. Now come with me to Boston and celebrate and all will be perfect (well almost). Love ya girl!

  19. Carissa says:

    Hey I’m over from kevin wasden’s blog… did he do the cover art? I’m impressed with the art and the title of the book! Happy to see when it comes out!

    Would love to help promote it via social networking or just plain jane word of mouth !

  20. You deserve every bit of it.

    I want the shirt that the girl is wearing in the cover! Is it just pretend or can I really buy that somewhere?
