Hi everyone. Another week gone by, another post of exciting things to talk about. With the release of the third ‘Meeting Each Other’ story pending, I thought I’d better let you see the cover.
In a switch to my usual method, I got help in choosing the photo on which the design was based. I gave mailing list subscribers a selection of four to choose from and left a poll open for people to do the biz. If you’re curious… these are the shots they had to pick from.
Pic1 didn’t even get a look in – which was interesting, as I quite liked it – but in the end, with an impressive 66% of the total votes, Pic4 took the prize.
Thanks everyone for voting. I REALLY appreciate it and I’m pleased that it worked out so well. I hope you’ll work with me in future with more things like this as your input is so valuable to me.
So… presenting, the cover of Bill, latest in the six-part Meeting Each Other Series:
I’m very excited about this one as it marks the half-way point. Somewhere I never thought I’d be this time last year. I need to think more seriously about releasing the special edition with all the stories inside and perhaps some bonus content. I’ve been thinking about this a great deal and I think that’s a fabulous way to round it all off.
In fact… if you were picking up a book with extra content in the back, what might you expect to see? What additional features (besides good stories and a fair price) would convince you to part with your money?
I’d love to hear your ideas. And… how knows? I may even be able to wrangle it for you. ^_^
Next week I’ll have an excerpt for you as well as some quote art (which I quite enjoy making).
I hope you like the cover. Don’t be shy about letting me know what you think; I really do value what you have to say.
~Continue deep edits on Slippers & Chains
Done! Which may be why I have bags under my eyes and trouble sleeping. I just couldn’t stop. I love this story so, so much. Past and recent feedback has made me burn to get it out there so I just powered through it. Now I’m stealing Ileandra’s method and putting the work back into digital form where I can work on the last few spots that need tidying. After that, I send it to betas.
~Chase up Bill cover art from Angie
Done. As you can see. Thanks again, Angie, you are an absolute WONDER!
~Finalise details to go in press kit for solo website
Nope. 😦 I mean, I know what’s going in it, but I haven’t written it yet. I’m thinking of using a similar format to Ileandra, but I’m not sure it will suit me as well as it suits her. Our sites have quite different styles – which you’ll see when the time comes – even if the page headings are similar. Hmm. I’ll have to spend a bit more time mulling on that, though I should work on getting that content done. That’s not the hard part.
With that in mind….
Transfer deep edits of Slippers & Chains back into digital form
Begin deep edits on Eric & Morgan (for real this time) just one page to start myself off. That’s the goal until the rest is done
Finalise details to go in press kit for solo website (for real this time :-p)
Read at least one peer blog post a day (within or around my genre)
*skims* Yep. That should be plenty. As ever, I don’t want to overdo it and I have lots of other responsibilities I suppose I should keep an eye on.
I like to be busy though.
