Book Cover - Watermelon is Life

Just wanted to share the cover of the next book in my teacher travelogue series.  Watermelon is Life is about my experience as a volunteer teacher in rural Namibia.  I plan to donate some of the proceeds to an organization which is trying to bridge the learning gaps in Namibia.  School children are still in great need of desks, chairs, and textbooks.  Will provide more information as the time draws near.

Presently, I've finished the 1st draft and am going over some revisions.  Then I'll pass it around and have a few people comb through the manuscript.  Hopefully I'll be able to publish it sometime this spring.  :)
