Today I had the enjoyable task of proofing the design of the book jacket for my novel. Front, spine and back, all on one template. I think it looks great. Inside, the designer used the scales of justice on the page of each new chapter; behind the number of the chapter. This takes up about half the page. The spine is half red and then the title, and then my name smaller to the right.
I began writing this book a year ago this month (except for the first page about 2 1/2 years ago). Editing started in September and now, finally we are getting to the gusto. I am learning how to ‘Brand’ myself and write my Press Release. UGH. However, another fun task today was pricing bookmarks to use as business cards for marketing.
