Donkey Dream is spreading its wings

I will be sending the files off to the printer next week for "Donkey Dream" and let me tell you-I am so pleased, and relieved. There are so many tiny details to be consumed with and it is hard to focus on any other work while making a book–at least that is how I work on them.

What has been fun for me is to go back and read the original story–which was originally called "Raggedy Love". I started it in 2009 I think. This book has been through so many transformations-it started as a children's story of Pino and his pies, but then evolved into a memoir of how I met Martyn and got to the farm, which included Pino and his pies. Depending on who saw it, the poor book [and me] would labor over a new direction. But looking back, it was all worth it–the book is really more like I had envisioned it in the first place, with the love story but also pie recipes.

Anyway, I settled on a cover and back cover, seen here. Very soon I will have pre-order information up too.
