So my awesomesauce editor, Danielle, was kind enough to overnight me a stack of solicitation covers over the weekend. (Larger shot below).
In case you don’t know, a solicitation cover is what the publisher sends out as part of their promo packages to booksellers – it’s basically the entire cover, including the back blurb. (And embossing on the front, in my case! And Phin on the back!)
Sort of hammers home the reality here a bit for me, which I really, really dig. I will probably be giving some away in a little bit as I get closer to publication date, but I’m also going to frame a copy or two for the family. (Ideally, I think I’ll do that for each of the books as they come out – put them in my office or something.)
