BEING's new cover . . . and why
As a graphic artist, I've spent my professional life bending my artistic will to the input of others. And I admit, I liked the original cover of BEING; it was supposed to be space dust that had formed a face. But . . . it didn't come across well.
A live and learn moment pour moi. [I seem to have a blind spot when it comes to designing my own work. Gah!]
So tonight I redesigned the cover, focusing on (a) the reoccurring image in the story [a glowing sphere] and (b) a highlighted letter i, because the story is one boy's journey toward discovering who he is.
And I'll say right now: Thank you, random fan. I like this cover MUCH better.
The cover goes live on Kindle tomorrow, and on the paperback version a few days following. The cover art will change on Goodreads soon too. A woops and whoo-hoo moment all wrapped into one :-)
