Meet Miss Mabel on October 1st

Miss Mabel's Magical Magnolia Tree

What if the Fountain of Youth existed in your own backyard? That is the blessing and curse discovered on a warm spring afternoon by 85 year old Mabel Cottonstine. It flows beneath her majestic magnolia tree, filling the tree and all of its flowers with the magic elixir of life. After making a batch of a sweet tea using the flowers, Miss Mabel turns back into a vibrant 25 year old. She shares the gift with her best friends Hazel and Gertrude and they suggest she sell the sweet tea to other old people to give them a second chance at youth. It is a huge success and Miss Mabel rakes in more money than she could have ever imagined. But, what happens when the love of the money she's making overtakes the reality that the magnolia tree only has so many flowers that can be made into the magical drink?

Hey everyone, this is my first attempt at a summary for my newest children's book Miss Mabel's Magical Magnolia Tree, due to be released October 1st. The one major hurdle I have is the cover art. I am not quite sure what type of image to use and am open to suggestions. Normally with my other books I have something in mind but I am drawing a blank here.

Also, anybody who is a parent and would like a copy of this when it is finished just let me know. Being my friends I will be happy to share my work with you as long as you spread the word about what I am doing. Thank you all as always for your support.
