Pity Party, Anyone?
Jeez. That last post was a big ol' pity party, wasn't it?
I received my proof from Amazon today and yep, the paperback cover of Clingstone is still much too dark, but guess what? I'm not going to let it bother me anymore. I'll only drive myself bonkers striving for perfection. After having some time to reflect upon matters, I'm perfectly happy with my slightly too dark cover. What's more, my cover still bleeds onto the spine, but this time it's only 1/16 of an inch. And weirdly, the culprit is the front cover this time and not the back...which makes no sense to me since I didn't even mess with the front cover when I reformatted it. But oh well! We can't have everything, can we? It's darn good just as it is, and I still think I've got a pretty good shot at getting my foot in the contest door, so to speak. Now I'm off to approve my cover one final time and then I'll order my copies to send to RWA.
Hooray! All is well. I'm an optimist again! Which is fantastic news, because being a pessimist sucks.
