An Interview, A Puzzle and a Prize

Cover Reveal


Due to an error in the original blog posts about Faith’s cover reveal, the entry for the giveaway has been extended more than one full day! You have until noon Central time on Friday, October 16th to enter the giveaway. If you tried to email the cover before, please do so again, this time with the following, CORRECT email address:[at] Thank you!

Happy Monday! Today we have a blog post with a cover reveal. But, there’s a catch. The author, Faith Blum, has split her cover into 14 different pieces! In order to enter her giveaway, you need to put it together and email her your cover. Or, if you don’t want to enter the giveaway, but you’d still like to see the cover, stop by her blog on Thursday.

The Prize

The winner will have to be patient, but the prize for this cover reveal is a signed paperback copy of Lily of the Valley. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of shipping internationally, Faith won’t be sending a paperback outside of the U.S. If you are international and would like to participate and win, you will receive an ebook copy of any TWO of my published books including Lily of the Valley.

To help you a little with putting together the cover, here is the description:

Howdy, Teacher! You don’t know me, but my kids talk bout you a lot. I been lookin fer a wife and mother fer a few years and was wonderin iffen we cood meet and get to no each other a bit. I’ll come after school to git yer answer. Grover Miller

Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do. When Ruth Brookings rejects one of the suitors, he refuses to accept no for an answer.

To make matters worse, when she prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend to find a wife—whether he wants one or not.

Will she lose her friend just when she needs a friend the most? Will she be able to weather the storms she’s about to face?


  • Stop by each blog listed below to get their piece of the cover.
  • Use a program like this website to put the cover together: If you get a little extra space between each piece, your cover will still count toward the prize. It doesn’t have to be perfect as long is each piece is in the correct place.
  • Email your completed cover to Faith at faith[dot]blum[dot]@gmail[dot]com NO LATER THAN October 14th at 9:00 PM Central time. (If you have problems with time zones, shoot Faith an email and she’ll help you out).
  • Stop by Faith’s blog to see the cover and who won.

Author interview

How did you come up with the puzzle idea?

Another author I know did something similar, only with fewer pieces. I thought it was fun, so I decided to give it a try. Cover reveals can be a little boring, so creativity may help with that some. 🙂

Who is your favorite character to write and why?

Jeremiah Carson. He’s a ten year old boy who comes up with the funniest things to say. I think a universally favorite line from Lily of the Valley is one of his.

Jeremiah crossed his arms. “But I could court her for you and tell you everything she says and does an–”

At this point, the lady in question interrupts him. Saying no, of course.

Pretend it is the apocalypse and you are going into hiding. What book besides the Bible would you take with you and why?

A hymn book. If I have to go into hiding, I would want a Bible to read God’s word and a hymn book so I could remember the words to the hymns I love.


Find the other pieces of the cover on these blogs. If you are coming in late and would like direct links to each of the blog posts about the cover reveal, please go to Faith’s website link here. She will update each link to go directly to the blog post about the cover reveal.
