I've changed my novel design once again.
While change is a constant in my life, with my books, I am never satisfied until I have the novel and its cover as perfect as possible. At some point, one must stop writing and get the wonderful story out there for others to enjoy. However, that doesn't mean much if no one buys the book. I'd been told or read it somewhere, if your book isn't selling, change the cover. So, I did, more than once.
When editing my stories, I get stuck sometimes and that's when I use AI to get me unstuck. Although I have to rewrite what the AI comes up with so it's still me writing. And so, I decided to ask the AI what would be ideal cover design ideas for my novel? I was given 20 different themes for a cover. Holy cow! That's a lot to choose from. Nevertheless, as I read the names over and over, the last one on the list really struck my fancy.
AI said it would be unusual and attract attention. Well, I like unusual and I like to attract attention, so, the one image of two lovers against a background of stained glass seemed appropriate. And then, going online (naturally) I found a stained glass design that was perfect. Not one hundred percent, but close enough. Into my editing program it went. Then downloading a bunch of new fonts and voila, before long I had a new cover that I think hits the spot. You probably saw it on page 1:
"An Affair with An Angel"
It's an ebook on Amazon and paperback. After the 26th of December it will be on sale, assuming I can figure out how to do that one. Amazon has some weird in's and out's that are not easy for me to canoodle, but I'll give it a go and see if I can make it work. I'll let you know. So check back and hopefully before the 16th I'll have it done. Yahoo!
I'm a talker and always have something to say. And so, it stands to reason, I should turn my thoughts into stories.
