A completely different plan concerning book covers for Sage Sweetwater's release of BLUE CORN WOMAN in fall 2007: Sage made the decision based on yet another healing process during the past nine months. Two other covers had been designed for BLUE CORN WOMAN, one completed and pulled for personal reasons, and the other one in the process, the artist not holding up his working relationship with Ms. Sweetwater, nor keeping in contact, nor meeting the deadline by the publisher's standards.
A third book cover art was bought by Sage Sweetwater, licensed, contracted, and is subject to renewal each year for use in Sage's spin-off products and the marketing of her book, or however she may use it.
Keeping the name of the female who is a popular soul-visionary artist, under wraps until the release of the novel, the soul-visionary artist has her own unique style, energy, and enormous breadth of subject matter including goddesses, angels, visionary landscape, the beauty of nature, dolphins, images of spirit and light, fractals, crystals, mandalas, and more.
The female artist's statement given by her, she says, "Creating this artwork is an ecstatic experience for me. My inspiration comes from a variety of sources, but ultimately from the Universe, the 'All That Is' that we are all a part of. I feel that there is an energy, another dimensional "beingness", if you will, that wants to be expressed through me and be given a form in this dimension. Sometimes it guides me very specifically as to what form to create and other times it just develops organically over time. At its best my work is a wonderful form of channeling and I feel so honored to be able to do it."
Sage Sweetwater says healing of an artist's own soul (hers) can be found in another artist's work. When Sage first saw the artwork, she knew it was a spiritual passage. She contacted the artist and arrangements and payments were made.
The artwork for BLUE CORN WOMAN is in spiritual alignment with her characters. BLUE CORN WOMAN is consistent all throughout the novel of the purging of emotions through a cathartic "purification" window. Sage Sweetwater's focus is the unity of three female souls coalescing with the spirit.
The novel will have value in Sage Sweetwater's readers own lives. We've all lost someone we loved through death. We know we can never replace that loved one, but we can work through their spirit through others. The characters of Blue Corn Woman, (Native American) Valentina Harmony, (Latino) Della Bell, (White) and the spirit of Devi, (Hindu) portray that diversity and race can merge into spiritual healing. Each book, separated into four books with their own chapters, can stand alone as offshoots of BLUE CORN WOMAN.
