Happy Friday everyone. Please stop by the Scribes as we wrap up our first theme week – joining an organization. Check out my post – Don’t Go it Alone!
I received something very exciting this week - the cover art for Mystic Ink!
When my editor sent me the cover questionnaire, I realized that I had no idea what I wanted. In the past, I had a few ideas, but they were all kind of nebulous and strictly in my head.
The questionnaire was a reality check. Mystic Ink needed a cover because it was going to be published.
OMG I sold a book!!
I did. It’s real. I didn’t imagine it.
Take that Mr. Doubt Monster.
So, I thought long and hard, then responded with my preferences and information about the story and characters.
I was eager to see the cover for the first time. With my name on it!
Needless to say, I was thrilled with the results. I now have something tangible to look it.
Next hurdle, edits. When I get those, you can be sure I’ll share that experience too.
Tell me, when have you anticipated something? Did the reality meet your expectations? Or would you do things differently?
