Back in the day, people went ga-ga over artists of all mediums. And rightfully so. It is super hard to stare at a blank canvas and some up with a realistic looking landscape...or something more abstract. To look at a block of marble and see David the way Michelanglo did. Can you imagine?
And yes, there is much more to art than just those examples. But today, we have another medium at hand - computer-aided design. It's everywhere. And I believe the people who can do that are simply brilliant. Not only does it take the artistic ability so many of us covet, it takes a deep intelligence to make the computer do what you're telling it to do.
All that to say, I'm here to praise the work of my graphic designer for the lovely cover I received for Fusion last night. I've partnered with this person to create covers for all the books in my series based on the WestBow Press design of Asylum. So far, I am most pleased with his work. Definitely an artist's hand with a touch of genius!
For the record, the two finished covers are for books that have been completed. Both Poison and Fusion are finished and ready for an editor's eye. And as stuck as I have been on traditional publishing, I am contemplating going the e-publishing route. If I do, I will not go into it lightly. I plan to hire a professional editor to help me polish my work. I don't want to be hasty in this, but I do feel it's time to bring the rest of the Circeae novels to the public.
Because for me, it's not about fame and riches. It's about telling the pretty awesome stories of some pretty awesome characters. Thanks for following along with me in this journey.
