Yesterday, I opened my email and to my surprise I received an email from my editor, showing me a picture of the cover art to my children’s book. I was excited to see it! He told me to pick one of the two options that he emailed me and to let them know which one I wanted for the book cover.
I looked at both of them several times, but it was easy to pick which one that I liked best. I then asked my grandma to come and take a look and see which one she liked best. She had picked the one that I liked as well. It wasn’t a hard choice to make.
One of the pictures the artwork popped out at me. It was bright and colorful compared to the other one. The other artwork was hard to read the title because it was in black and white. It didn’t match the rest of the artwork. I quickly emailed my editor, telling him which one I had chosen.
I wish that I could share with you the cover art, but I was told not to…yet. They want me to wait until the cover has been finalized. I can understand that. Not to mention I wanted to wait myself, something about the anticipation of the surprise seems more exciting. Its kind of like going to a movie you haven’t seen before with someone who has seen it. The element of surprise is ruined when they begin to tell you what happens before it happens. I love surprises. I love going to a movie or watching a TV show without knowing what happens until it happens.
It is getting closer and closer to production, the part that I’m anxiously awaiting. I’m not sure what makes me feel giddier, the closer I get for my book being complete or the part that comes after that. I’ll find out at the end of this month.
