Guess what? Guess what? Guess what!?!?!
Okay, wait, let me take a few deep breaths here… *In*… *Out*… *Repeat*…
Right. That’s a little better. But… GUESS WHAT!?!?! My publishers sent through the designers’ first concepts for my book cover!!! YAY!!! I honestly can’t begin to describe the level of excitement I felt when the email came through. I was at work at the time and, regardless of that, I may have had a moment a little bit like this:
… And that moment may have continued repeating itself sporadically over the next few hours. (Oh, the shame. Thankfully, the people I work with are used to my random displays of excitement by now…).
But seriously, I couldn’t be more thrilled with what the designers have come up with. I’ve been so worried about being disappointed that I never really allowed myself to imagine what I actually wanted the cover to look like, but now I have proof that it is in fantastic hands, because they’ve done an amazing job! And that’s just on the first draft! We still get to refine it and change things and… oh, *happy sigh*… I’m just so relieved, you know? And now that I’ve given my feedback (likes, dislikes, etc.), I can’t wait to see the next round of changes!
Okay, this is just a short-and-sweet update because I wanted to share my excitement. (I’m not kidding when I say I still look exactly like crocodile-Louis here; though, I’m perhaps a touch less co-ordinated…)
