    I love it! And William.

  • I love it and can’t wait to read it! I hope you come near me on your next tour!

  • I’m very excited! And if…for any reason, your book tour brings you to rural (like wild west rural) Nevada, I will be your tour guide, welcoming committe, and host for your book signing.

    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

    Can’t wait to read it!

  • Michelle-Who-Is-Shelley

    SO PRETTY!! These are my “serenity” colors. Will have to get and extra copy just to display. I think William Ashe just told me that I am having a good hair day — love him!

  • Therese

    Gorgeous! I needed something brilliant to cheer me up this week — and here it is!! I think I can hold my breath until November….

    And William Ashe is pretty fly.

  • Linda J

    WHY OH WHY is this not alredy on my shelf???!!!

    It is so beautiful.

  • Jen the Goddess in Virginia

    It is WONDERFUL. Fireworks and birds on wires and all the good colors!!!

  • Love the birds. Love the booming fireworks. Love the blue. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

  • Kim


    Cannot wait to have this in my hot little hands….

    Yay! Only 7.5 months!

    (Boooooo…lol…too long to wait!!!)

  • Ooh, I love the cover art! November 19th seems a looooooong way away, but I’m hoping that you’ll be coming to Seattle and/or Portland or someplace in the area and I can finally come and get a book signed in person!

  • DebR

    I would buy the book even if they just wrapped it in plain brown paper, but this is very pretty. 🙂

  • Melissa

    Can you share the story behind the cover? After the explanation behind A Grown Up Kind of Pretty’s cover I’m thinking there has to be something meaningful here.

  • Jessica (the celt)

    It’s very nice to meet William Ashe. Will we be introduced to the other two at a later date? ;~)

    Can’t wait! I just received Deanna Raybourn’s latest in the mail today, so I’ve got something to tide me over for a couple days, but what about all of the rest of those days (and weeks and months)?!

  • Julie in Colorado

    Love it! Love it! I can’t wait! Congratulations!

  • Bridget

    Not the same artist as your previous covers is it? Can’t wait to hear you talk about it at the Decatur Book Festival.

  • Teresa

    oooo ooo ooo oooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. But I won’t have it in time for the BEA in May….. when do we get to pre-order??

  • Les in az

    I can’t wait to special order my signed copy for my shelf with ALL your books 🙂 ps arizona is really nice most of the year for book tours, hint hint.

  • Linda Evans

    Wonderful news! I’m about to start Backseat Saints, and then I will have finished all of your books and be hungry for a new one.

  • Michelle M.

    it will be the perfect birthday present for myself! Love the cover and can’t wait to read it.

  • Jill

    Really cannot wait- my husband is an aspie, so I do love William!!

  • Of COURSE, I love it! It’s yours, is it not? I love all words by JJ.

  • Corey

    Can’t wait!! That day is my parents’ 53rd wedding anniversary, so I will buy it for them. Except I will read it first and give them the pre-read book after I finish (c’mon, I’ll use a bookmark instead of dog-earing the pages). And then I’ll ask them to return it to me so I can read it again. They feel strongly about recycling.


  • Aparatchick

    Wow, that is a GREAT cover! I love that we have the two birds headed towards an intersection of wires and the cardinal looking on. A simple and beautiful cover.

  • I think I almost wet my pants. Bring it on baby.

  • November is always such a stressful, yucky month for me. This will be MUCH-needed. I. CANNOT. WAIT.

  • Oh, it’s PERFECTION!!

    But, November? That’s foreeeeevverrrr!!!!!!

  • OMG! It’s gorgeous! And, my Aspie? His All Star baseball team? The Cardinals. And his new rec team? The Reds.

    I want to marry this book already.

  • Summer

    Oh! I’m so excited that a new book is coming. Love the cover! Cardinals are Very Special Birds in my family.

  • Mike Sullivan

    Looking forward to seeing you at The Alabama Booksmith when you’re on the tour!
