Since it’s Throwback Thursday, I figured I’d unveil some behind-the-scene workings of the cover art for my last book release A Lightbulb’s Lament.
Last year the ever talented writer and cover artist Mike Kleine worked on the original cover. It started out like this and I loved how much my name stood out, haha.
We went back forth on it a bit, then it evolved into this beauty.
It was simple and stark. I loved it. However, the whole Hanner/Spectular Productions crisis happened and the book was never released. Thankfully, I got my rights back. (That’s right kids, think twice before signing a book contract).
Bizarro Pulp Press came in and scooped up my novella and we got to work on the cover. Pat Douglas tossed together a quick cover just to get a feel for the book.
Not many people know I can draw so I put together a cover and Brandon Duncan did the colors and design. It turned out lovely.
I tried to get a few other artists to whip up a cover, but things didn’t work out. However, I ended up getting Jim Agpalza to do the cover and it turned out great.
Now you’re probably wondering if the words inside are just as good as the cover. Well the answer is a resounding yes! So go buy my book, sonny.
