I know, that last post was boring! I made it up to entice readers to The Moonstone, (taken directly off my website www.wolfmoontrilogy.com, but it was too long and too long-winded! And how would my reader even know what the___ it was about? My apologies to those who tried to read it.
You'll think I'm a glutton for punishment, especially since I'm about to make a major move to Tucson, (notice the correct spelling of my future home) but I'm starting with Createspace again for Book 11! I may be a bit premature since I'm aiming for middle of June but after the debacle of book 1, I decided to get a jump on it. (how many cliches can I use in one short blog?)
I'm afraid I may have to go with option 2 for the book cover on this one--For "The Moonstone" I went with the 'unique book cover' option where they use a stock photo and doctor it to match what the customer wants, but listen to the description (from the book) of how I envision the cover of Saille, the Willow:
In the painting a female figure emerged from the roots of a willow tree that had been split down the middle. Her velvet gown was deep red, her arms outstretched toward the full moon in the night sky...graceful willow branches cascaded downward on either side of the slim body. Behind her, dark forest stretched into the distance. The moon cast a line of light that extended to the figure and the two wolves who stood like sentries on either side of the tree. Carved into the wooden frame at the bottom was a
symbol: a vertical line with four equally spaced horizontal lines pointing to
the right. After that, the words: Saille—The
Option 2 is known as the 'signature' book cover and brings the cost up by $400. I could save some money if I don't have to do 3 rounds of editing this time but...there are so many reasons I should wait on all of this:
1. cost of the move
2. disorganization which will surely ensue
3. added stress
4. very few sales of book 1
5. did I mention money (that I don't have) outlay?
Still no word from Bowker in my e-mail box so should call this quits for today...back to packing...(ahha--avoidance--another reason for this)
