I wish I had studied illustration in college (in addition to everything else I studied). I can do everything in the indie publishing process except for designing my covers (and, of course, I hire a real-deal copy editor when I hit the grammar-and-bits part of the process; I would never trust myself with that sort of thing). I’m currently waiting on 3 different covers from 3 different designers and, I must confess, I’m getting rather impatient. One of the covers is for The Hawk, as the current cover does not communicate what the book is. The second cover is for The Model Universe, as I think those stories deserve something much better. The third cover is for a new collection of humorous urban fantasy shorts I have coming out: The Mike Murphy Files. I’m pretty excited about that one. I love writing humor and I’m curious to see how the stories will be received.
Granted, we aren’t getting snowed on like a great deal of the country, but this is California. Where is global warming when you need it?
