I am THIS close to having my own cover design used for my novel, The Space Between. After about a dozen emails back and forth (she couldn't open anything I sent her because she was on AOL) the artist finally was able to view the attachments as separate layers. I can't wait to see what she does with it. I have to wait through the weekend. Also, the editor received my latest edits a week ago and I have to wait to see if they're final or not.

I am on pins and needles.

Wow! That's a whole lot of excitement, Chumplet! How awesome would that be to have your own cover design?!? :D

I'm sure this will seem like the longest weekend ever for you, so here's a big, fluffy cushion to protect your buns from all those pins and needles! :tongue

Man I am so jealous!! That is so awesome! To have your artist use what you've already done. Wicked cool.

Yes, I did just write wicked cool, you have a problem with that?

I'll second that, and go as far as to say that it's bloody brilliant. ;)

Wow! That's fantastic. I hope they go with your design. That would be just another feather in your already very feathery cap. All the best!

I'm wicked happy. She changed the background a bit, slapped on some really nice font (with my name at the top! Like I'm, yanno, the Author!) and she's sending it to the editor for approval.

She says she'll recommend putting my name inside as co-cover designer, since I worked so hard on the sharktooth necklace. I can't wait for you all to see it! Just a few more days....

Congratulations, Chumplet. Publication is impressive enough, but your own cover design besides? Way to go!

Wow! That's really neat. How long do you think it will be before you hear back from your editor.
