A nice nod....

Things Unsaid was recently featured by SparkpPress for its great cover design.

"This trend is sometimes used as decoration or redaction. Other times, it brings new information to the cover.

Okay, we’re cheating a little with this one. SparkPress doesn’t have any books with a cross-out—but our sister press, She Writes Press, which uses the same team of designers, does.

The cover for Things Unsaid by Diana Y. Paul crosses out the “Un.” Not quite redacting, since the title doesn’t change, it instead tells us that during the course of the novel, the things that have been unsaid for decades will finally come out."

“With a grace that is absorbing and deft, Paul tackles many difficult questions, including filial responsibility, depression, marital strife, and sexual identity. …The author depicts heart-wrenching conundrums as the three siblings are forced repeatedly to evaluate their personal priorities….An engaging tale of family dysfunction and intractable senior citizens.” More

I had the pleasure of interviewing some of my favorite authors – Matilda Butler, Marylee Macdonald, Jenni Ogden, Paul Vidich and Barbara Donsky for Women Writers Women’s Books. More
