In case anyone noticed that I had vanished, it’s because of the really fun workshop we have been doing here on the coast since last Saturday. The workshop is on creating paper books, both design, business, distribution, and a ton of other stuff.
Tiring and fantastic fun, since we have been starting before ten in the morning and not ending until after eleven every evening. Over twenty fantastic publishers here.
Many of these publishers had never personally designed a cover before, so following is some of their covers they did here, many of these are first covers. I only asked them for one and only if they had bought the art. Many of them have done numbers of covers here, including designing interiors of books. And not counting all the vast amount of business discussions and lectures going on about selling to stores and getting into the major chains and getting into distributors and sales reps for their books.
So I will be back with a post on promotion early next week, but for now, take a look at twelve or so of them. It was great fun watching these covers come into being right in front of our eyes.
And thanks to Allyson Longuiera, the publisher of WMG Publishing, for all the hard work.
