In just one short month, my first book, Everyday Enchantments, will be released through Moon Books. October 26 is the official release date, but you can pre-order your copy here. In anticipation of this release date, I thought I’d share the official book cover and story behind it.
When I first started compiling the manuscript for what would become Everyday Enchantments, I always knew what I wanted the book cover to be: a cup of coffee with the hint of magic. It was the epitome of everyday mysticism in my mind. A cup of coffee (or tea, as is your preference), is one of the most ordinary objects of our day-to-day lives…and also one of the most universal simple pleasures. I wanted the image to suggest that quiet moments—like a coffee break—are fertile grounds for ordinary mysticism.
So I got a wonderful designer to take my musings and turn it into this lovely cover. Then a miracle happened: Moon Books approved my dream cover—something practically unheard of in the publishing world.
Isn’t it lovely?
I couldn’t be more proud or elated for this cover reveal! In other exciting news, the reviews are in and readers are loving this collection of mediations on everyday magic. Read what they have to say:
“This book is truly beautiful. When I read 'Everyday Enchantments is a love letter to the magic of everyday life'. I knew that this was a book I'd fall in love with and I wasn't wrong. The book consists of a collection of short writings providing an alternative perspective on the everyday. Beautifully written and thought provoking, everyone should have a copy of this, or read it at least once! This is a book I will go back to over and over again. Highly recommended.” ~ Margaret Leonard, NetGalley
“This book appealed to me on my levels. and I felt the stirring in my being with the way the words just flowed from the author. A very good read for those who want to live enchanted on a daily basis.” ~ Christina Blake, NetGalley
“A lovely thoughtful book with an invitation to step into the magic of somebody else's life. All the experiences are very personal and culturally related to the authors own life. However it was a pleasure to dream up all the sights, sounds, and smells of another place and another life. I especially loved the trip to the herb store and found it all a sensory delight. Hopefully it will encourage you to see the magic in your own life and what is special and sacred to you. A delightful read.” ~ Jc. C, NetGalley
