Now wait a minute…aren’t am I supposed to be on a blogging break?! So what am I doing posting and blogging today? It’s not Monday nor is it 8am, the usual blog post schedule.
Well, I’m just so excited and I wanted to share it with you. Thanks to the suggestions to my post for IWSG (Insecure Writer’s Support Group) on June 1st. I was able to update two of my work in progress stories on Wattpad with new covers!
All thanks goes to fellow IWSG and Wattpad member Olga Godim who designed the new cover for The Soul Traveler. And thanks goes to Elphadora who designed Nadia the Fire Witch. I’m still waiting for new designs for my epic fantasy Harbingers of El Tinor. Which I’ve already plan to work on for NaNoWriMo 2016.
I’m also waiting for the cover for the contemporary romance, Dreaming of You, to be redone. Although, a lovely cover was already made. I wasn’t specific enough in the details, since the couple are African-American. It’s lovely isn’t it, right? Can’t wait and keeping my fingers crossed that the designer creates another good cover for me.
Anyways, without further ado. Behold the new covers:
PS If you don’t know already #SFFpit is a Twitter pitch event for science-fiction and fantasy writers. And it’s happening this Thursday, on June 23rd, from 8am to 6pm. To find out more about #SFFpit and the new rules, visit Dan Koboldt’s website.
Still not sure you want to take part? Then read Jennifer Derrick’s guest blog post on how she stumbled on a Twitter pitch, #Pit2Pub. And into a publishing deal: Success at a Twitter Pitch Party
How do you like the new covers? What are your experiences with the design process and the waiting for the cover of your own book(s)? Do you use the cover of a book as a deciding factor to read/buy the book? Or do you believe in not judging a book by its cover?
