I am over the moon with cover for PIECE BY PIECE [Sleeping Bear Press, July 2017]. Sylvie Daigneault's art is stunning!

“Once upon a time a weaver tucked a memory into her collection basket.”

Drawing inspiration from the natural world around her, a weaver woman with a magical touch crafts exquisite fabrics. And from the fabric she fashions a wondrous dress, with a bodice that sparkles of starlight and lace like the foam of an ocean wave. The weaver envisions the food and clothing she will be able to buy for her children from the sale of the dress. But when she takes the dress to a local shopkeeper, the weaver is told her work is not saleable. And so she starts over again.

Harkening back to the magic and lessons learned from classic fairy tales, this imaginative tale reminds readers of all ages of the importance of pursuing one’s dreams and following one’s heart.

Thank you all so much!  I have to give credit to Barb McNally, Senior Editor at Sleeping Bear for writing the flap text.   I seem to tear up a teensy bit when I read the story.  For all of us who know what it's like to put your heart into your craft and then go through rejection ---- well, this one is for us. Spoiler alert:  there is a happy ending!   :yay
