“So what’s going on?” you might be wondering quietly to yourself. (Or asking me loudly, like Denise.)
Well, a few years ago, I wrote a YA science fiction novel, and after a number of drafts and revisions, I have decided that 2014 will be the year I publish it as an ebook. The book is pretty much ready to go and I am now in the process of looking for a cover artist. I have a pretty clear idea of what I want the cover to look like, but there are pretty much a quadrabazillion cover designers on the interwebs. Finding just the right one is proving to be hard. I actually haven’t even contacted any of them yet, because I’m a little OCD about things. As of today, I think I have my list narrowed down to 8.
There are a number of amazing artists out there who do great work with models in their cover work, but my book includes a reptilian humanoid and a Cyclops as two of the four main characters, so I may have to end up with an illustration, instead. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just can’t seem to find the illustrator I want to contact.
As I get farther along in the process, I’ll talk more about my novel, Runaways. But now I must take a look at the 7 tabs I have open in my browser and see if I can’t find the perfect match for my needs. Thanks, y’all!
