10-2-10: I heard back from the lady who was going to do the cover for me. She decided she's not able to. So, I found a lady I work with who is an artist and she wasn't interested either, but knew someone who she asked, and they were interested and neither of us have heard back from her. ARGH!! I guess I'm going to have to either get my publisher to publish this next one or use a service I found in California.
Will keep you informed.
"The Golden Locket: The Cruise" is coming along good. I will probably be able to have it released by Halloween.
