Compliments from a Stranger is the first full-length novel I wrote. It came into being in April 2013 during the wonderful Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I’ve edited it a couple of times but it still needs more refinement. However, I needed a visual to go with it, for my own edification. My photographer friend (who took the blog header image) took a stab at the design for the book. This isn’t the final cover, but it will look very close to this (we know the woman isn’t the right one…). Before I give you any excerpts, I thought you’d like to see this first.
