Cover and Title All Set Thank You

Thank you all. I have a cover and title solution. It’s a move in a different direction compared to everything before this, but I am liking it a great deal. It matches the book content better than anything else possible I can think of.
I have some minor rewriting to do of a couple pages at the start and end of the book to better sync up with the cover material. The two proof copies of the current version should be here tomorrow and Jennifer and I will read them over for final agony and drama. Then we resubmit things and we’re done just as soon as the Createspace machinery does it’s stuff.
For those that have asked me. The print version is first. After that we’ll muddle through on Kindle, Nook and eBook versions as fast as we can. It’s all fairly new to us, so no idea on time to get all that done. After that might look at getting a print version in Britain. North America gets about 91% of my readership, so obviously going to make those peeps happy first.
And thanks again for everyone wanting to help. I’m touched by the interest and loyalty of everyone. I could probably put a photo of a duck wearing a yellow hat on the cover and most of you guys would still buy it. (Just that no one else would.)
Though earlier today, Jennifer panicked and nervously squeaked I could use her ass for cover photo bait…

    Completely off topic but can you post an updated version of you and your wife together? I like to see how couples change from their wedding day to current day…just curious.

  2. Now I'm not buying it unless it has a duck with a yellow hat on the cover.

    Just publish the fucker, will ya?

    I'll post it on my blog and then pitch it relentlessly.

    P.S. You're a bloody kiwi. But that beats being a pommie bastard.

    Show us the cover art, already.

  6. Is it ass, apron, wooden spoon, and wedding ring? Pretty please?

    lol Kelly – sounds like a good idea.

  8. Wow. Props to you Athol, I don't know why I didn't see this one coming. You strung everyone along, testing this and that, then BAM! called in rank and made a final decision, no questions asked. Very alpha of you, very.

    Sai – I wish I could say that was the plan all along, but it really wasn't. I'm a Myers-Briggs INTP type, so I take forever to stop researching and come to a decision usually. I've truely been struggling with this issue for the whole week.

    That being said, I finally have my cover solution and I'm pleased with it. For better or worse it is what it is. Everyone will just have to wait a week or two for the cover reveal… and maybe an additional twist.

    Kelly – best phrased offer of marriage I've had to date :D

  10. Lol @ Kelly and Private Man

  11. I know Athol. I don't doubt that you've been working hard at it. Just poking a little fun.

    Yeah, yeah. :-)
