This week, I’m introducing the characters of my book. This is Mersha. This rose is by far the best the artist did for me. When I saw it, it took my breath away. The bloom is opening up wonderfully and the thorns are so realistic, it almost looks like you could prick your finger on them. This is the image that solidified in my mind that my book would come out, and I would be a published author one way or another. This rose made it real for me. I can't wait to tell you more about this character in the future.
