Self-Printed: The Cover is Here!

I’m avoiding the internet for the weekend because (a) I love to use religious holidays as an excuse to do less work and (b) the time I don’t spend lying on the sofa watching TV will be spent correcting the second Self-Printed proof which arrived today (so, those of you in the first round of road-testing, should receive your copies on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week), so all going to plan I can do the final upload/proof ordering on Monday. But first…

I just got the final cover from my designer, Andrew of Design for Writers, and I actually let out a little squeal when I saw it. I’m a total control freak and normally send Andrew very specific instructions for what I want him to do, but this time I let him have free reign with everything other than needing to use grey (long story) and to match Mousetrapped, and look what he did!

I am SO pleased with this, I can’t tell you. What do you think?

And, self-publishers, check out Design for Writers. Their website is coming soon but in the meantime if you need some work done (and done well for a very reasonable price) contact I highly recommend them!

    HI Catherine. Great to work with you (and surely not a control freak 😉 I look forward to reading the book when it hits!

    Wow, it looks wonderful, and so professional! Only, it also looks really thick! is it really that big?
    I love how it matches the others, I have a very mild obsession with neatness and uniformity so this has pleased me immensely!

      It HAD to match Mousetrapped, and the new one in September is going to have match too. As you can tell from this blog, everything has to match with me too! 🙂

      I don’t think the thickness on that image is just by default but it IS thick – 330 pages which is alot considering the size is 6 x 9! Got a bit carried away but there was so much to say…!

Ah, go on. Tell me what you think...
