Since the release of the beautiful new edition of The Prairie Prince, (or should I say handsome new edition), I’ve been riddled with the question, “Did Kevin know he was going to be on the cover?” Well, the answer to that burning question is, “Of course Kevin didn’t know!” What? Do you think I’m crazy? He probably would’ve axed the idea before it was even all the way out of my mouth if I’d told him ahead of time.
Nope…poor Kevin didn’t find out that HE was the image of The Prairie Prince (as of course he always has been to me) until the moment I showed him the announcement on the website! His reaction was a mixture of horror, surprise, being flattered, embarrassment, and incredible understanding and patience toward his wife (me)!
I asked him what he would’ve done if I had asked his permission first, and he confessed he would’ve moved heaven and earth to change my mind. But now that it’s done…he understands that I love him sooooooooooooooo much and is flattered that I think of him as handsome even though he doesn’t see himself that way or as worthy to be on a book cover. (That’s part of Kevin’s charm…the fact that he doesn’t see himself the way the rest of us girls do!)
And so…there you have it! Nope…he didn’t know before hand! And YES…I LOVE the new cover! I have a ton of stories to share about all the new covers, but I’m kind of squished for time today…so I’ll save those for later!
Meanwhile…I’m soooooooo behind on my random contest stuff! The winner of the FTD Spring Bouquet Arrangement is Sally Timmons! E-mail me your address at email@example.com, Sally…and I’ll get that ordered for you!
As for a new contest…hmmm…let me think. Ooo! How about this…a $25 Michael’s gift card (Michael’s the craft store, of course)! Does that sound fun? I have all my custom framing done there, and usually end up picking up a few other things! So…pop in a comment below about your crafty projects for Spring (or for any other reason) and you’ll be entered to win! My friend Jan sent me a Hobby Lobby gift card for Christmas and I used it just the other day to purchase some crafting supplies I need for a project! (Thanks, Jan!) Gift cards are so fun, right?
