Big news from my publisher, Schiffer Books!
My Editor loved my manuscript of Tarot in Reverse so much that she lobbied for it to be in full color, on glossy pages...and the publishing team agreed to it! I am blown away, and humbled, that Tarot in Reverse will be getting such special treatment!
Because it will now be a bigger book, I also have an extra 10,000-15,000 words I can write, so I plan on including sample readings using reversals from my own case files.
The sorta bad news, though, is that they nixed Ana's cover, saying it lacked continuity (since the interior imagery will be Universal Waite). But we'll still get her lovely design in there in the back of the book, with a write up on her and her art!
Is this good news or what?!
Because Schiffer Books is so collaborative, they asked for my input on the cover. I came up with a mock-up to inspire them using the Universal Waite images they required. (And a huge thanks to U.S. Games Systems, Inc. for giving me permission to use their images throughout Tarot in Reverse and on the cover. They rock!)
I'm so excited because I know this will be a beautiful book, and because I know you'll find Tarot in Reverse (only the 3rd book on the market to address reversed cards!) an informative, entertaining and enormously helpful read. Coming Spring 2012!
