Behind the Cover

TODAY is the day! The stunningly dark cover for Land of Corn Chips has been announced! Have you admired it yet? If no, go now. You won't be sorry.

ONCE UPON A TWILIGHT
TIGERS ALL CONSUMING BOOKS

Didn't that just make your day?

It's not exactly the cover I had originally envisioned when I began the process of having it created. See, that's a cool thing about being independent in the author world, we are in control over how our cover looks. In addition to the forlorn field and factory, I wanted zombie children with missing body parts and pieces of skin dripping out of the cornfield. But, as an independent, I also discovered credit for the coolness factor of the cover also meant responsibility for the cost. 

This cover, without the carnage, is so much better anyway. It conveys the desolate darkness I hoped for and the dragon pulls in a little fear and mystery. Don't you think?

Land of Corn Chips will be available on an eReader near you on June 6, 2011. Stay tuned before then for sneak peeks into the story and other newsworthy information. Because we all know stories are newsworthy.

If you are looking for a fabulous cover artisan to work with you on your visions or to print business cards and promotional material, Robin Ludwig Design is the best!

Peace out for now!

  2. LOL! Thanks, Angeline. I hope it didn't melt your corneas. I hear those are expensive to replace.
