I’m beginning to learn that there is more work to writing a book than the actual writing. There’s the propositioning of other authors for blurbs to be included on the book, there’s the marketing considerations, and there’s the cover.
My publisher will primarily be taking care of the cover, but they asked me if I had any ideas, which was nice of them. I sent them a few pics of the workers and their homes and then they told me that we can’t use people on the cover. Then I directed them to the ultimate WAIW? slideshow to see if anything struck their fancy. So, I wasn’t much help. Here I’ve been thinking about all of the words that go in the book and not what goes on the book.
Today, I’m 29 and since I know that you want to recognize my last birthday before I’m 30, here’s something you can do for me…
Share any ideas about what images or concepts you think would be great for the cover of WAIW?
Or, if that isn’t quenching your desire to give me stuff, you can always send me money. Please round to the nearest $100.
