Picture 4Until Dairy Queen was published, I honestly never thought much about the interior design of a book.  But it’s as much an art as writing one.  And I wanted to give you a sneak peek inside THE IMPROPER LIFE OF BEZELLIA GROVE.

Theses pages are the creation of Random House designer Lynne Amft.

    I am really interested in your writing process. When you said you revised the first 100 pages, what exactly is the depth of your revision? ie scrapping whole sections or just changing a word or 2? I've been wondering about this as you've commented on it. It was also mentioned a lot in a book I just finished by Sue Monk Kidd, Traveling with Pomegranates.

    Stumbled upo the blog via Twitter. Is this going to be your first book? Good luck if so. Robert
