So I set a goal and I achieved it! I put Until Alex out on Goodreads today and hopefully people will like the blurb, which took forever to get just right-and even still I'm not sure I love it. And hopefully they'll like the cover. LJ at Mayhem Cover Creations did an amazing job with it! I know I've said it before, but I really feel like the essence of the story is captured by the cover models--the angst, the love, the guilt, the confusion.
Step one in getting Until Alex out there for all to read is putting it on Goodreads. That's my task this week. Hopefully, once it's up, people will mark it To Read. My next step is emailing bloggers who I follow on Goodreads, and whose opinions I respect and oftentimes lead me to read a book, in hopes that they'll review it. Keeping my fingers crossed!
So I finally have exactly what I want on the cover. LJ at Mayhem Cover Creations was awesome to work with. She had revisions back to me within a day, and when I wasn't satisfied with how much of "Hayden" was showing, she gave me a little more and then a little more and then a little more until I was completely happy. When I worried I was being too picky, she eased my mind and offered to make even more revisions if I had any. I would absolutely recommend her work and will be in touch when my second novel comes out for sure.
