Update 5 for Get Off My Lawn!
Thank you for subscribing for updates for A Whim Away's upcoming new book, Get Off My Lawn! Today, I will be giving you an insight into the cover design process.
I was initially thinking of creating the cover myself using Canva. But something was always wrong with the versions I was making, and people in the self-publishing group highly recommended that I hire a professional cover designer.
As you know, I almost got scammed in that group. I seemed to be having reasonable conversations with them about the cover. In the end, their downfall was trying to change PayPal details when I was ready to pay. It was very close!
Next, I engaged a cover illustrator and designer on Upwork. Marta Khmilyar, from Ukraine, illustrated the front cover herself, and gave me a few options. Upwork kept the payment in escrow for us, so we both knew we were serious. Here's the final illustration, as a bonus for reading!
I also have some exciting news. To celebrate the end of the financial year, and six months since Cupid's Kiss was published, autographed copies of Cupid's Kiss will be on sale for 40% off! Please go to to the Cupid's Kiss product page for more info.
Please feel free to share this email with your friends. I have included the subscription link for them here. The next update will come in 7-14 days.
'Til next time!
