Cover Reveal

It’s finally here…approved and looking AAaamazing! Do you remember the fun it was along the way? First we got a glimpse of Voldemort:   He totally worked for J.K. Rowling (who I happen to adore!), but it wasn’t working for me. We went on the search for an image that would work. This is one image I sent as an example of what I was looking for.

If everything goes right, I can keep my September 7th Release Date.
