Did you know you’re more likely to be attacked by a shark than die in a plane crash? I find that interesting since I never go in the ocean, but I’ve been on a plane ten times. So, I guess I’m more likely to die in a plane crash than be attacked by a shark, but maybe it’s different for you.
I thought beginning this letter as if you already know me would make the concept of a total stranger writing to you a little less weird, but now that I’ve thought about it, I realize my fascination with plane crash facts might be weirder. But I like weird. So, hi. If you didn’t catch it from my return address, I’m Ruby Kaminski from Fremonton, California. My mom died on Flight 397 with your parents. Though, can we really say they died when we have no idea what actually happened to them? Let’s refer to them as MIA. No, I’m not in denial. I’m painfully aware that they aren’t coming back, but I like facts. And the truth of the matter is most of the people on Flight 397 are MIA.
You’re probably wondering how I managed to get your address. I have my ways. Besides, I thought it might be good to connect with someone who understands what I’m going through. Though I believe our circumstances are entirely different, and there’s no way for me to understand what you’re going through, I’m hoping we can relate to one another on some level.
Do you ever wonder if, after the plane exploded, the passengers were washed up onto a remote island, and now they are kicking back, drinking coconut milk, and sun tanning under a palm tree? Maybe they are eating fresh seafood cooked over a fire and sleeping under the stars?
It’s a nice thought, don’t you think?
If you’re okay with weird, feel free to write me back. I’m full of it.
One night I was browsing through Regina Wamba's images on Facebook. For those of you that don't know who she is, she's an INCREDIBLE cover designer who owns Mae I Design and Photography. When I was going through her photos I came across an image and thought, "THAT. That is Calliope. That needs to be Luminary's cover." And from there I knew I had to make the change and redo the Faylinn covers. This wasn't something I look lightly. I'd been thinking about redoing the cover for months and months. I'd heard from friends who worked with Regina how incredible she was to work with. Not to mention the fact that I've always admired Regina's work. Seeing the image for Luminary kind of just solidified it for me. And now I can tell you from personal experience, Regina really is as great as everyone says she is. I think she truly captured the essence of every Faylinn book. I hope you'll love them as much as I do!
