It is the end of September. A month ago today I published my first post on this website. First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has joined me on this new journey. Thank you to everyone who has commented, liked on Facebook, and shared my articles. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Nearly three years ago I started writing this book. It was not until that first post and the support that poured in that I felt a swell of pride that I could do this. I hope you will continue to walk side-by-side with me towards the day I publish The Edge of Snow and Dust, and beyond!
That said, today leaves me with a little under three months until Christmas, when I hope to have the book released. As I continue on the writing front, painting the scenes with words, I have to also turn my attention to painting the cover. The old phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” is something worth noting in your daily life. There is more to everything than what you see, especially people. We have to, however, admit a lot of great books are never read because their cover does not catch the eye. A single image can convey the themes and emotions a writer has spent a thousand words writing. If those emotions can capture one reader and that one reader spreads those emotions to another, you can create a fantastic and wonderful cascade of interest in the passions of someone half a world away. All from a single image.
Therefore I am now searching for an artist to create a cover that captures the theme of the story and the feel of the land. Obviously since I am just starting out, my budget is not on par with publishers. But I am willing to work with an artist whose passion is forging out of your imagination then counting dollar signs. With that I would certainly promote you so others can find you. Then hopefully I could send some work your way with others looking to publish their books or any other project requiring a skilled and passionate artist. And if we want to super charge that hopefulness, we could pair up again as I continue my series.
So please, if you want to take up the banner to create a beautiful cover and have the same passion for your art as I do for my writing, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
