Getting a cover design done is such an out-of-the-gate feeling. And like the beginning of a race, it’s both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. The novel-manuscript just went through a round of edits and the book is beginning to take a life of it’s own. It’s a shimmering story that has a way of molding those of us working with it.
Working with the author Gudrun Mouw has been lovely. She shares some of the process of writing in her blog and author website.
Book cover design is being done by Josue Menjivar, who has been extremely patient both when I had no vision for the cover and then when a very specific vision came to me. His design work is showcased on his website Fresh Brewed Illustration.
