So my first Steampunk novel, which actually would be my debuting novel as my other novel, a YA time traveling book isn't ready yet as I'm agent-hunting for it...will hopefully be out September 15th. That's the goal. The goal is to be done by mid-September as I'd like to go to the Steamcon III in Seattle in October, and would love to have the book launched prior to that. So mid-September early October by the latestl, depending how long it takes my editor.
What do you guys feel is the best self-publishing method? I'm going to do Smashwords + Amazon + Lulu. But a bit nervous about the process, looks a little tricky with all the formatting...I'm hoping Smashwords is easy enough to do all the e-book formats.
Just a bit excited for it. The Zeppelin Odyssey. I'm half way through draft three, my least favorite part of the editing process lol. Then I'll send it to my editor ... and then it can be published!
Anyway, the main point of this post is: I'm shopping for Steampunk cover art.
I'd like to support my SWAG members, so any artists interested in a single commission? I'm on a budget so it'll probably be a simple picture of either my main character, a Cyborg prince, or of the Zeppelin itself and hopefully the Steam Circle on the spine.
So hit me up if you're interested. SWAG love forever!#amadork Or if any published writers have a cover artist they recommend, I'm open for suggestions!
