I Thought Writing was an Emotional Process

But designing a cover draws out more emotion than writing the book.


  1. Hello! I noticed you've followed my blog, and I'm not sure if you are interested, but I do covers at affordable prices. Your book sounds really good and something I'd be honored to work on for you if you'd rather focus more on writing than worrying about creating cover art.

    Sorry if this sounds like spam or something. :)

    You can find me here: http://mwcoverdesign.blogspot.com/



  2. I just started following your blog. I'm not trying to be mean here, but are you seriously contemplating publishing one of your books with this cover?

    Please don't.

    From what I gather you've invested a lot of emotional time into these cover examples, but save yourself the burden and let someone else design your covers for you. I know someone affordable who specialises in book covers, or you should check out Melissa Williams covers above :)

  3. I'm crushed. You don't like my design?

    Melissa wasn't crazy about it either.

    So, Melissa, you up to the challenge of beating moi in creating a better cover? [he said grinning]

    (I almost wish writers weren't so honest.) Not really.

    I'll post the image I'm leaning toward. I frankly like it. Ho hum.

  4. I'm sorry! I really am. And I don't like honest writers sometimes too, but I know they're just trying to help in the long run. If you think my one opinion of your cover is crushing, I'd hate to see how you feel if more people didn't like it. But you never know! What has the response to your cover been from others so far?

    I could be wrong in my opinion, but I've worked with cover creators for a while now.
