The cover is done!

It's a most exciting thing to see the cover of a new book! Just seeing the title in print blows me away. A little story about the title: Orange mint tea figures prominently in the book and the characters sweeten it with honey.

In a key scene the mother, Nona, says, "It’s always possible to add sweet to the bitter.” I knew that scene was the key to the title, but Orange Mint Tea as a title was boring. So I turned to my friends Marisol and Rob, and they come up with Orange Mint and Honey. So simple and right in front of my eyes.
