Cover Art Revealed: Divided Within

Is there anything greater than picking a book off of your bookshelf and seeing your own name on its spine!? Well, I’m not quite there yet, but I’m definitely now closer than ever! And no, the answer is no.

I mentioned in my last post that I had an appointment today to discuss the interior formatting of my book and questions that I may have had about anything pertaining to the final steps before publication. I made my list and all of my questions were answered easily. So, you’re probably wondering where that gets me now. Well…in no  more than twelve days I’ll have the proof of my book in my hands for my review! How fantastic is that?

Once I approve the proof the book will be available shortly thereafter. And I’ll probably enjoy a little victory dance when I have a moment to myself so as not to embarrass myself too much. Oh what the heck. I’d dance and sing in the middle of the street if there was no danger associated with doing so.

Before you take a look at my cover art, please note that it will not be spineless as shown. Okay! Close your eyes! Now…open!


The Final Stages

Tomorrow morning my book will officially enter the final stages before publication!

The one thing I have left to do is upload an author photo, which I just did! My manuscript and cover will finally be in the hands of my design team! I must say, I lie awake most nights just thinking of the fact that I’m about to become a published author. It’s something that I didn’t think I’d experience as soon as I am. And the fact that I’m self-publishing doesn’t diminish the feeling in any way, not for me at least.

I’m hoping to unveil to all of you the final cover art once I approve it, so you all have to keep reading! And there may be a giveaway in the near future. Maybe.

The cover making process and the interior formatting should be done by mid-October. The time is nearing for all of you to finally get a look at my book! Be excited!

I can’t wait!
