Hey Writers and Friends!
First let’s get into this whole Fiverr situation! I am an artist and I am sensitive about my ish – E. Badu/FatBellyBella said it best and it is ever so true in the case of the cover completion! Couple that with a Graphic Designer who is overwhelmed and that adds up to 3 revisions!
Now, I realize that my GD was on the opposite coast early. He seemed to respond when I was about to go to bed! That clued me in to the fact that he also probably did this Fiverr work in his spare time after work. That was all good with me! Just keep that in mind when/if you order from Fiverr – your connection may not even be in America! Pay attention to who you book and where they are!
He was very understanding and assisted me in coming up with the best cover by linking me up to his source for pictures, Dollar Photo Club. It’s an amazing site where I saw some great shots to use for some other books I have in mind so check it out and join!
I am going to show the progression of the cover from his initial submission to the final that I am going to be using.
I liked this but wanted a little more of a curvaceous, sexy title font so…
This was still not exactly what I was looking for it just seemed to casual of a font to be the title in my opinion so…
Take 3 and the FINAL Cover for The Wayward Wife!
This one I absolutely loved… I just think it says all I want it to and draws the potential readers’ eyes!
Let me know what you think! Ask me any questions you may have about the Fiverr process and let me know your thoughts on the covers. Which one would you have chosen?
The Write Way Faye
I have decided that I will finish
two books this summer. One book by the end of Spring 2013. I would like to be picked up by an indie and put together some promotional materials that incorporate some multi media elements. I guess I need to get some things in place in reference to a webpage and such…
In the meantime, I wanted to share a spicy tidbit from the prelude of The Wayward Wife :
I was in the gym’s shower when Jon called, removing traces of lust, getting my head together to return to the land of the righteous. I finally made it out of the shower and I saw I missed all of his calls, but when I heard what’d happened to my son, shame overwhelmed me. By the time arrived at the emergency room, there was no time to wallow in my humiliation. The stark walls and piney disinfectant smells blinded my senses; numbness washed over me. I was underwater; seeing nurses’ lips moving but sound escaped me. I watched those white-coated messengers of doom came toward me, but the last thing I remember is seeing Robert’s face like in a nightmare, and then darkness… I awoke from my dead faint with a nurse waking me, syringe in hand…
Let me know what you think!
