Okay. Hubs is home, and we have a cover change…back to the original…before I listened to multiple pieces of advice concerning the lack of a female representation on the cover. So, the final cover for To Have & To Hold is back to the cowboy. Only.
Of course my editor, Marva Dasef, brought up yet another one of my blind spots. I blithely use the term, ‘dally’, amongst a few other terms common to my world. “Ah…to most people, ‘dally’ means ‘hanging around’.”
Yeah, well, one of that particular word’s meanings is to act or move slowly…or a sexual liaison. But it also means to throw a couple of turns around a saddle horn.
A check in my old fashioned dictionary has this last definition, but a check using word look-up on Kindle does not provide that.
Okay. Creatively sneak in the inline hint of its definition. But, for those curious, here’s a video:
The woman, a whore, is in pieces…because her life is in pieces. She only becomes solid where she touches the cowboy. But the more she touches the cowboy, the more life she finds she’s assured.
