So, I have been working diligently on my work in progress, "Beauty of Fear" and in so doing, my mind has been racing, again (ADD remember?) Big mistake.
What should the book cover look like?
What will catch someone's eye?
What will make me happy?
Anyway, my love read the brief synopsis and said there should be something mysterious, something with eyes. I wanted something a bit creepy but not to much. According to her, the cover itself should set the tone, she was right. I sent the brief synopsis and our ideas to our niece Danielle who is working on my new website. Her company is www.endee.com and she does web design and graphic art. She took our ideas and suggestions and came back with a couple of pics. I think I've settled on one…creeps me out, I like that. With my love's help…a couple of font suggestions from some friends, I wonder what the rest of you think…
So where am I going with this? Well, with that done, I can refocus again, and have. Participating in ROW80 and NaNoWriMo has been a blessing. I've given myself a deadline which I plan/expect to meet. So far, whenever I feel myself get distracted, I look at the cover, I may read a little something and then refocus. Thank God my love has been patient with me, I don't know if I could be so patient with me. Yeah, nope, I couldn't.
