It's June's IWSG post. Check out the IWSG page to find out more about this wonderful group.
My mind has been going in two different streams the past few days. On the one hand, the novella is coming together--I got the copyedited manuscript back over the weekend and went through the Track Changes. My copyeditor only had about 4 queries for one, which she said was good for a story that is 29K.
So the story itself is almost done. Now it's on to covers. I have no ideas for a cover--not being a visual person in the least--but it's an important component for a book. Readers takes cues from covers.
I've been looking at places that have pre-made covers displayed to see if something among them might suit. I've found a few that might be okay, but I'm not entirely sure yet.
I need my cover to convey:
- Woman of color as the main character
And in the other mind stream--and on a much more personal note--my maternal grandfather died this past Saturday. He was 89 years old, had been ill for some time, and we knew it was coming very soon, so the family had time to prepare. We were at the house as he/just after he passed. You can't ask for a more peaceful and family-filled end. Still sad, though.
