|Urge to kill... fading... fading... fadi-RISING! ...fading...|
Today I finished the third draft of
|This looks a little like a ten-year-old boy's back|
I also turned in the final author edits for Merm-8. No one said anything this time when I turned them in. I'm hoping everyone's pleased. I didn't leave anything inconclusive, so I'm hoping we really are done, and they didn't just give up on me.
|What in the world is reflecting up there?|
|Not a fan of the "evening gown" mermaid|
And finally I got a delight in my inbox. The mockup of my cover art was posted. Squee! But when I took a look at it, it wasn't what I and the promotions specialist had discussed. It was just a mermaid in dark water. No science-fiction elements, no other characters. It looked like a fantasy romance, which it definitely is not. The mermaid's not even the main character (although she's the draw-in).
I hope the artist is receptive to feedback because right now it looks very generic and does not reflect the content of the novel.
