This morning was a great day. I received an e-mail from my cover artist containing the two rough’s she’d done up based on my ideas. I have to say, they were a little different from what I envisioned, but my mind has been blown. I was dancing and excited like a kid before christmas.
Giving my book a cover, or a face as I like to think about it, makes this entire process so much more real. I’ve heard other writers talk about the process but until you’re there, it’s really hard to envision. Seeing a potential covers means this really is happening. It’s more than just an idea, more than words. It’s a book!
I’ll need to take a few days to think about it and after speaking with the artists I may post them up and see what everyone thinks. This is a great way to end the week and start a weekend of intense writing.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
UPDATE: Alright, so as soon as I posted this there were e-mails and tweets to show you, so here it is. There are two totally different ideas. Let me know your thoughts!
UPDATE: Okay, so it was brief, but there you are! haha.
