My Adventure in Self-Publishing Part 2

Now I am a little over a month into this adventure and man what a ride it has been. I want give a huge thank you and hug to everyone who has supported me thus far! You all rock! So here is where I am at, I am updating my cover and reformatting my paperback. I feel like I hit publish on the paperback too soon. So now I am correcting everything I hated about it. That is a perk of being self-published, you can always correct your mistakes and resubmit your files. Though I will advise you to try to get it right the first time. I am always learning something new everyday.  My book Beautiful Strangers will also be getting a new synopsis, the current one just doesn't feel right. So I am taking the steps necessary to be the best I can be. I want people to get what they pay for. I don't want to just cram shit down their throats. I want them to have a great experience when they put their faith in me to give them a great read.

Cover Woes

So when I designed my first cover I was super excited. I was feeling oh so proud. Then I release my book and a few weeks go by and then I see them, other books with the same cover. How did I feel? Devastated! I poured weeks into getting the first one right, but hey everything has a reason. Or I like to believe at least. After some heavy thinking and debating. I made the decision to give Beautiful Strangers a new cover! I am very excited to say that W. Solomon Mitchell has designed a gorgeous new cover for me. I can not wait to show it to you. I feel like Beautiful Strangers is unique and original so why shouldn't it have a cover to match! So this coming Thursday is the big day for the new cover reveal! I can not wait to share it with you!
