The Cover

Halfway through the final edit. Here's the book cover, designed and created by my daughter.

The original design I had in mind was too busy, not the correct proportions for an e-Book, and didn't stand out enough in thumbnail. When my daughter and I spoke about coming up with something, I wanted a style that would translate to any of the books I eventually plan to publish. It's important to have a brand that is easily recognizable. My daughter pushed for the black/white/grey scale, looking ahead towards the printing stage of promotional materials, etc. Besides, anyone who knows me, knows black is the dominant color in my life ;).

Thanks to my daughter for a job well done. I see a Mac in your future so I better get back to work...
