When I posted my Spring update the other day, I was sitting on one piece of news. Now, however, it’s fair game to announce my first book cover!
Well, I guess technically it’s more like my third book cover since I have done a couple of self-published photo books. In my metaphorical book, this is different since those were my own productions. I designed those books and covers on my own. This one was very much a collaborative effort with the author. We went through several iterations before arriving at the final book cover.
It was a fun collaboration, at least from my side of the fence. In school, I was that person who never much enjoyed group projects. It always seemed that the work fell more heavily on the shoulders of some. So I have to admit I was surprised how much I enjoyed the artistic direction provided. Perhaps it was the need to rise to the challenge?
I don’t have immediate plans to hang out a new shingle as a book cover artist, but I will explore the possibilities, and if anyone out there has their eyes on a given image for a future book, you can always drop me a note to discuss.
In the meantime, if you like mystery novels and have a kindle or other device that allows you to read Kindle books, be sure to try Ms. Charlotte Moore’s new book Deep South Dead!
Looking for peace and quiet to write a novel, Hunter Jones left Atlanta for a job at a weekly newspaper in Merchantsville, Georgia, a town so small that everybody knows everybody else’s business. She quickly discovers that gossip travels faster than the press can run, and she’s a bit of an outsider looking in until she goes to a grand old mansion for an interview with the president of the historical society, only to find that a murderer got there first. Now, if she can only get Sheriff Sam Bailey to take her hunches seriously…
