The Title. The Jacket. The . . .

The Whatever. Okay. We’ve got a title and a jacket design. I’m not crazy about the title but it’s not bad for a compromise. (*1)  

According to Amazon, the book comes out in mid-November. For a non-famous person like me, that means it will be out in mid-October. (*2)

Anyway: here is a virtual representation of the real thing.

Jacket Design Final


*1: As I said in my previous post: Please do NOT bombard me with emails or comments about how I really need to leave the publishing Nazis behind and self-publish. I know the drill. I have my view; you have yours. Self-publishing is part of my future, but that’s then. This is now. (Re. the “Nazis” term: One reason I don’t read self-publishing blogs anymore is because those who have them tend to be, shall we say, supremely self-righteous. A blog entry on one of said sites described traditional editors/publishers as Nazis. Oooh, boy, did I not ever go back there again.)

*1: Every book has what is known as a “lay-down date,” on which the book is released for sale. But those dates are only real for Very Famous Writers, for whom a Big Fuss will be made on that date. For the rest of us, however, the book lands in stores and online whenever it’s released from the warehouse. That’s typically a month prior to the lay-down day.

  1. Well I think it works. And the picture is OK too. Chickens, Pigs, and cows.
    Take a nice beak…… then we’ll see you blogging!

  2. Thanks, Dave. I am SO not a visual person, so I couldn’t imagine what kind of design the jacket needed or would have. It ain’t bad! as for taking a break: a small one. Small. Mostly am anxious to get on with some other projects I have in mind.

  3. Ha! I like it. But it’s also about poultry and pork, so it doesn’t quite work. We went through EVERY version/combination of words.
