Those who are on my mailing list know Iâ€™ve expressed concern that my book cover would look like some sort of silly romance novel â€“ you know, one that Iâ€™d be embarrassed to be seen reading, selling, or giving out for friends and family.
Well the good news is that I just approved the final cover of the book from the publisher. I really like it and Iâ€™m proud to say that itâ€™s a cover that Iâ€™m not ashamed of. All things considered, I think Cedar Fort did an excellent job and captured the mood and message of Room for Two very well.
I showed the real cover to my graphic designer friend Trevor yesterday. He said the publishers didnâ€™t get the actual message of my book and whipped up the cover at the top of this post.
I think he did a great job recreating my reoccurring nightmare.
I did have some fun with the fake cover around the office, however. I proudly showed several co-workers the amazing cover for my book and had to hold back the laughs as they struggled to complement it.
Iâ€™ll be posting the real cover in the next few days and unveiling some new places on my website. Be patient and stay tuned.
Update: I forgot to mention that I thought Trevor did a great job of capturing my muscular body though my hair's brown, not black.
