I finally got the finished print cover for Corona earlier and I’m back to share it with you while the friendly folks at Createspace chew on it for a while. In addition, I received some promotional graphics that I thought would be fun to include. Enjoy. 🙂
I finally put in the last of the new book cover orders for The Three Safeties, Vessel, and Parallax, a few minutes ago. Remember what I said about believing in what I’m doing and investing in myself? Well, I still believe it, but next time I’m going to find a more economical way to take my dreams to the next level…hehe.
Seriously though, it feels good to know that I can get my work out there in the best light possible. Every step I take as an independent author is a new learning experience and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Yes, I’ll keep telling myself that as I pay off the expenses over the next 6-12 months. 😉
Anyway, now that that’s out of the way, I can move that stuff off to the side and get back to finishing Lights and Shadows. I’m not fond of the business side of this affair, but it is what it is. 🙂
I’m having one of those fairly rare mornings where it’s quiet and I can wrap myself in my thoughts and consider how my day will go. Right now, I’m waiting for the first drafts of Corona’s print cover to find its way into my inbox while checking out new covers for The Three Safeties.
I relish quiet mornings. No sounds around me, no distractions, and a general sense of peace of mind. I love that. Most of all, the quiet allows me the opportunity to be creative and open to whatever my soul dredges up from its nether regions. They also allow me to put the few inner demons I have to rest in favor of moments of unbridled optimism.
Times like these I consider precious because they also allow me to unleash my imagination and let it run wild, to explore limitless vistas of self-expression which eventually find themselves on my pages.
I don’t have enough of these times, but I’ve learned to deal and appreciate when I have them.
