Now, about today's scream- I HAVE A COVER!!!
It is awesome, and really gives the right feel for my book, and did I mention it is awesome?!!!
When I first saw it I really lost my breath. It is a wonderful cover, but it was more than that-it was MY cover for MY book. Created by an insanely talented artist.
Along with the extreme happiness of seeing the cover that will be gracing my books, there was a shock of "DAMN! The realness level just went up a ton!" I am now on Amazon as an author (this book isn't up yet, but my page is there) and working on Goodreads and other places. The book is in close to the last round of edits. I don't know if authors feel this way after their second, third, or fifteenth cover, but as a first time author--this is just amazing.
It is so insane how that makes me feel. I know the book itself, my words, are what matter. All the hard work, long hours, and lots of support and editing from others that has accumulated into The Glass Gargoyle. But a great cover is such an expression of that that it really boggles the mind when it becomes real.
So here I am, a month before my first book launches into the world- swooning over my cover. Join me in the celebration! The Glass Gargoyle will be out in March 2015.
Funny - I saw your cover first over on Facebook, and my reaction was *swoon* as well! I can't stop staring at it, so I can imagine how over the moon you must be. Can't wait until March! :)ReplyDelete

Hi Marie, congratulations! Echoing everyone else, I love your cover. The colors, the way your name is displayed in the scroll, the heroine's stance and the look in her eyes...all wonderful things! You have a lot to be proud of with this one!ReplyDelete

In today's world, a cover is almost as important as the story for getting people's attention. Glad you got a great cover. Congratulations.ReplyDelete
