TBD Cover Sneak Peek

I finished revising last night and shortly thereafter, my wife wrapped up her manipulations of the cover.  We've already done test runs on our templates, so converting the files and sending them off to B&N, Amazon, and Smashwords is all that's left.  That'll be tonight's project, and we hope to be able to offer the e-book as early as this weekend.  The CreateSpace print version should follow swiftly on its heels, but we have a few more things to do for that (spine and back cover design, namely). 

I wanted to share what we've settled on for the cover.  I'm pretty excited about it, as it embodies a lot of the things we wanted to do.  I think it is unique without being jarring.  We may update it as we learn more about cover creation, but I think it's a solid design.  What do you think?

The Binder's Daughter Cover
I've updated the featured banner and the series page (linked up top) with the cover image.  The editing took me just about two weeks of "second shift" work.  That is, I came home fromt he 9-5er, then worked at this until my eyes burned.  I found that I enjoy editing, though I feel like I could keep returning and rewriting forever.  That's not a good thing, in my book, because then projects would never get done. 

Anyway, we're almost there!  I need to get a fiction post up (maybe this weekend), and I'll slap a post and links up here as soon as the book officially becomes available.  Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
