Below is an email from my mother that I just received a few moments ago – there are typos because Mom’s 78 year old vision is going. But it’s a wonderful memory of something that she experienced sixty seven years ago.
i found it strange that cbc was the only newea service that mentioned that yesterday was the end of ww2 and today is the actual sigbibg of the surrender by the various generals. has too juch time passed? i remember that day like it was yesterday. My father had been gone for a month or so and that day i was in grade six and we had the day off school so I rode a free street car and bus up to my friends place and we went to the rcaf barracks on avenue road where there were tons of people and they burned a fuge effigy of Hitler and Mussolini. Memory is amazing isn’t ity===mom
Here’s the cover for my forthcoming YA debut POLTERGEEKS! (After a few minor tweaks.) It’s a gorgeous, GORGEOUS cover and I’m just blown away by the quality of the artwork. Paul Young from Artist’s Partners in the UK is the mastermind behind the cover and I couldn’t be more happy with the results! What do you think? Would this stop you in your tracks at your local bookstore?
After you seemed so appreciative of the little tasters we gave you of the Blackwood and Shift cover art as it progressed, we thought that we would do the same with POLTERGEEKS (coming in October, written by Sean Cummings).
We have asked the artist to do some funky stuff with the background to the piece and obviously there is no lettering on it at all – but meet Julie, the main character. Julie is a sassy teen witch, embroiled in a life and death showdown with a Dark Power, and we are thrilled to see that the artist (which is one Paul Young) has captured Julie’s look of determination brilliantly.
Also? Julie is a jeans and t-shirt gal, and we’re proud to show her in such!
I don’t know about you, but I’m thrilled with cover artist Paul Young’s work on this!
