‘Hitting Water’ on a Manic Monday Night

hittingwaterFiverrMockUpI’m writing this blog post in a blur, practically on autopilot, and it might not make sense…. But here goes!

So the process continues!  I’m really excited. My book is getting to the marketing stages – prepping for the publication with Amazon, and I’m learning the hell out of this business. The craziness lies in my day job – which has just recently had a re-organization, so things are getting super busy. Juggling new responsibilities and trying to bring out the theme and subtext of my short stories to a marketing expert at Createspace (which is the platform that brings a self publisher’s book to Amazon and the world) so she can write a back cover blurb, categorize the book for search engines, devise snazzy ways to make me interesting to the passing Amazon buyer.

The cover above is just another mock up. A really wonderful artist from the UK I found via Fiverr.com put this together using the photo I selected, and it looks awesome!  The only thing is – during the time it took for her to do it (where there was radio silence and I kind of thought I just threw away $30.00) I found another really terrific artist who is pulling it together, along with formatting the interior of my book. I also trimmed the name of my book to “Hitting Water”.  So, although the photo will be the same – the titling should be different.  How about the color?  I was thinking of making the sky blue maintaining the sepia in the water, diver and rock.

I’d love your input!  Please comment!

  1. I like the sepia tone of your cover. The old-time feel suggests to me that you survived the “hit”.

    Congratulations on the eve of your publication. You did it!
