The Lilac Years—new cover draft

Here is my latest draft of the cover for The Lilac Years: I had placeholder text on the back that I needed to replace with something. Rather than add a blurb, preview one of the poems, or keep it all minimalist and get rid of the text altogether, I decided to add the list of words. [...]

Dear Thursday… in production

Production on ‘Dear Thursday…’ is under way. After first preparing the Word file for the e-book version, I copied the contents into InDesign, then generated the interior PDF, which I have uploaded to IngramSpark (along with the cover, which you can see below) to start the process. My target date for publication is November 27th—which will [...]

After considering, then abandoning, one small design change to the interior, I was almost ready to upload files when I got a request from the editor of this year’s edition of Spindrift to use one more poem. After giving them the okay, I removed [...]

ART 65 #4
