Totally judging my book by its cover
Another step in this lengthy process of publishing a book is complete- I picked my book cover. I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but everyone- from a little kid to a marketing genius can tell you that first impressions are important. The cover is the first thing everyone will see and might be a deciding factor in reading it.
The night my publisher sent the first few proofs of the cover, Dad was in Arizona with my Mom visiting some family. I had to text the images to Mom to show Dad (Dad has a smart phone but says he doesn’t know how to access texts). She responded that he was “ok” with them. (That’s the seal of approval from Dad, it’s not going to get much better than that).
So that is a big part (at least to me) of this book being another step towards being on the shelves (or in your e-reader).
The even better news is that Dad is back from AZ and I look forward to being able to see him for lunches again.
