Cover Art Update

It's so exciting to work with an artist to get the art for my cover perfect.  We started working a couple of months ago, and yesterday, he finished what is most likely the very last draft.

This is one of the things that I think is so neat about indy publishing.  I had a co-worker who was published traditionally, and she did get to provide lots of great feedback about her cover art, and worked pretty closely with the artist.  But I suspect that's not always the case, especially with a first novel.  I have complete control over this.  Yes, that also means I get to pay for it up front... which is probably a drawback for a lot of people.  But for me, it's fine, sort of.  My bank account for this is already set up.  Of course, this means if I don't at least break even on sales, I'll feel like a sucker.  But Maia has plans for me to be the next J.K. Rowling, anyway, so if she can work her personal 9 year old mojo on my writing career, it won't be an issue.

I can't wait to show the art on here.  I'm going to do a cover reveal party/announcement tour soon.  I am still working on getting all the websites and social networks and such to point in the right place.

But ooooooooh.  It's so fun!
