UnCover Monthly is back and needs YOU! #coverpromotion #UCMrevision #mfrwauthor

Get out the streamers and confetti!!! UnCover Monthly is up and ready to go again! Whooot!

I’ve been doing UCM for four years and I haven’t updated the page, or my original procedure in which I post covers. Shortly before the anniversary of UCM, mid-November, I decided the feature was in need of a small facelift. :LOL: Now I’m finished revamping the feature.

New ideas that will excite!

It’s been four months since I disabled UCM’s guideline page. I originally had only intended to keep it down less than two months, but life has a way of taking control and waylaying the best laid plans. LOL But I’ve finally got the new stuff added and the old reworked a bit to clean up, and shorten that horrendously looooong guideline page. Why did no one ever say anything? I’m just sorry it took me forever to complete.

With my injury creeping up on one year (July 30, 2016), I finally had my needed surgery on March 24th to repair my right shoulder. Two torn tendons in the rotator cuff, and a shredded longhead bicep tendon that had to just be cut loose, it was too damaged to repair. I’ve been in physical therapy since two weeks after the surgery. I’m not healed by any means, but now that those pesky tendons have been repaired (or eliminated, something I didn’t know could be done), I can feel the therapy working to strengthen my injured shoulder.

FYI- to anyone curious, PT is not the same as working out at a gym!

I’m still on TTD for an extended four weeks, but typing isn’t as painful as long as I don’t over do. Which is also why this feature renovation has taken so long, I wasn’t able to type for longer than 30 minutes in a day, and that was spent replying to urgent emails about my injury and job, often followed by a nap. I’m regaining energy each day to soon resume normal life. That’s code for “return to the DDJ,” or dreaded day job. 😆

In the meantime, I AM actively accepting submissions!

This has not stopped or changed. However, I seriously need your covers so we can all begin enjoying UCM once again. I’d like to begin posting covers in June, so hurry and hop over to the guideline page and read up on the new changes I hinted at before here on this page and grab your applications.
