New Logo!



Screw winter! Here's my new logo, designed by the amazingly talented Anne Nydam. It's sunny yellow and filled with some of my favorite flowers. Any gardeners out there? Do you recognize some of the plants? I'm ready to start incorporating my botany background into my romantic fiction. I am affectionately referring to my current WIP (Diabolical) as "Botanists In Love." More details later.

Good luck to everyone battling Seasonal Affective Disorder. I just bought a bouquet of daffodils. I hope it helps!

Thanks, Juju! Me, too!

Oooh, yum! Very spring/summer-ish! Seems like a rebirth, huh?

Penelope said...

Thanks, Julia. I am so jonesing for my garden right now, it's not funny. I think I'll work on my "indoor" garden project this week...putting together a terrarium collection. Gotta get the glass aquariums. I'll post photos when it's done!

Holly, nasturtiums and sassafras, maybe? Nice new logo, Penny!

Penelope said...

Hi Nancy! There is a big passionflower at the top (passiflora), and yes...holly, nasturtium, ivy (hedera helix), sweet peas (I LOVE those!), and some kind of orchid? I have to ask Anne about those.

You're going to love my book, Diabolical. It's a historical romance and the hero and heroine are both botanists! Weeeeee! :^)

I've never had problems with SAD until this year in Maine but I think that part of that has to do with the tiny place that we are living in right now. Good luck with your own battle I should imagine that the flowers, a new logo, and a fresh return to writing should help!

Hi Lindsay! Today I decided the best way to get thru winter is to focus on 1 more month. If I can just get thru Feb, then spring will slowly start to trickle in during March. I can make it!

The only one I was able to guess was the holly. I was never really botanically inclined. Very nice though :)

Lindsay Kiernan said...

With this huge winter storm coming my way, spring had better get here a little faster!

Penelope said...

Hi DL! Good for you...Holly is a reference to my holiday series about the Klaus boys!

Penelope said...

Oh God Lindsay, I am going to huddle under my blankets when this storm hits. I am so over winter!

Love the idea of botanical romance--I can't wait to read it :) That's a beautiful logo :) I like flowers but not gardening. I'm determined to like it at least well enough to keep up my landscaping this spring and summer. And sigh, how I long for spring.
Signed,

Thanks, Hannah! I've counting the days until spring, too. Screw the groundhog!
