A number of my readers contributed some very nice suggestions for book covers last year--and they were well-done. (Even the ones that didn't win were well done.) CreateSpace has changed their cover creator recently to be a bit easier to work with than before. Consequently, I used a powerful photograph of a homeless, almost certainly mentally ill main that I found through WikiCommons and the Creative Commons Attribution license.
Next week: the paperback and Kindle versions will be available. The Kindle version will be $1.49. I'm not quite sure of the paperback edition yet--still waiting for the final print size to be determined.
I'm not usually up this late, but I want to get the paperback proof printed and on its way so that I have it by Saturday. Lots of little niggling details to catch, then go back through and check all the pages online one more time...
UPDATE: Oh, this is getting old. The last change, for no apparent reason, and one line of the Introduction went to a new page. This would not be so bad if I did not have to get up for my day job in the morning.
I often fantasize about being to afford to teach college and write for a living. I'll keep thinking of Dr. Evil in that Mike Myers movie: "One million books."
UPDATE 2: It looks like Calibre is the free tool for converting to ePub format used by Nook.
UPDATE 3: Another delay. My daughter finished reading it, and was very impressed (and she is not prone to false praise). She has a few suggestions, and since her bachelor's is in psychology, her master's is in social work, she has worked in a mental hospital, and she is very smart, I think her suggestions are well worth folding in.
