I have a book cover. For my book. That’s coming out at the end of this month. Starting to feel a tremor of excitement.
Ken the Publisher and Jen the Editor spent many hours pouring over different sites looking for a barn picture we all agreed suited our purpose. I spent a couple of hours with them on Skype, but really, I was useless. I was too busy being impressed with myself for figuring out how to Skype, and then ended up stymied when they could search, at amazing speed I might add, other sites while we Skyped. So I signed off, much to their relief I’m pretty sure, and the next day Ken asked me what I thought of these:
I said I liked them. Sky was ominous without being spooky, there was the mandatory barn where the bodies are found, and the gun looked exactly like a murder weapon should. Deadly.
Then we talked about fonts and colours, I liked yellow, so this is what Ken and Jen came up with;
Yes, I’m scheduled for two book signings. Just like a real author. First one is Saturday, October 18, 2014, from 3 to 6pm at White Feather Bookstore on Elgin Street here in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. White Feather is an independent book store recently taken over by my good friend and neighbour, Karen. She plans on having her grand opening coincide with my book launch. Heck of a good idea. I’ll have more info on this event later, once we’ve decided on advertising and incentives.
Then, four days later, on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, I’ll be at the main branch of our local library. From 2 to 4 pm I’ll be sitting there behind a little desk with a silly smile on my face and a pen poised for signing. I sure hope somebody shows up.
I’m also hoping the books show up.
