About a year after publication, I decided to stop using the DIY method and hire the hard stuff out to the professionals. By that I mean the cover and the formatting. This is what The Cowboy’s Baby looked like afterwards.
This was done by Streetlight Graphics (aka http://streetlightgraphics.com ). I’ve used them for everything since then.
How’d I find these marvelous people? Well, it was through the rising fantasy and science fiction writing star Lindsay Buroker (http://lindsayburoker.com).
I honestly don’t remember how I first found Lindsay, but it was most likely that she’d put one of her books up for free on Kindle and I took advantage of it.
When I started following her on Twitter, I decided I liked her covers and took a chance that she would answer a fellow writer’s business-related question. Thus my introduction to the Streetlight Graphics people.
So, thank you Lindsay Buroker, thank you Streetlight Graphics, and thank you Kindle, and Twitter, and Facebook.
What a great new world of publishing!
WHAT I READ THIS WEEK: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris.
