Book Cover News

So my next book... I'm aiming for a later Summer/ early Fall publication... I just need to focus on editing my bum off...

A few weeks ago The Amazing Molly told me about a coworker of hers who is apparently mega-talented in the art department. As you know with the cover of "I Want To Hold Your Hand", I am not at all talented with drawing, painting, etc. I am capable of a mean stick figure but that's about it. I have the vision, I just can't bring it to fruition.

There's none of this...

So when I finished the first draft I got in contact with this talented guy about what I'm looking for and would he be interested in trying to create it for me. So we met this morning to discuss and though I have not seen any of his work, I trust Molly implicitly and if she thinks he's going to make my dream cover happen then I believe.

So now I have a little homework to do - look for styles and colors and fonts that I like to give him an idea of which direction to go in. And even though that's on me to get done, I am already anxiously waiting for the day he sends me an email with what he's created. Can we maybe just fast-forward to that moment?

I've never been a patient person. It's one of my faults. For example, if I call my mother (who still lives in the dark ages of dial-up and no call waiting - basically, if she's on the computer and you call her you'll get a busy tone) and I get a busy tone, I will call again and again until she gets off the phone or computer and answers. Or I give up. Whichever comes first. It's... a problem.

But back to the book cover. So now there's a little of this going on...

Which, now that I think about it, is probably why I eat so much cookie dough and hardly any baked cookies - because I just can't wait. But enough about me! How excited are you to see my next book cover?
