I just wanted to take a moment to share a very funny story with you all. Something I thought you might get a kick out of.
As is normal with every authors, methinks, from time to time I Google my own books.
In so doing I found that the cover to “MarcoAntonio & Amaryllis” had been put on “Lousy Book Covers“. I couldn’t be mad at it. I knew that the cover wasn’t that great. It was among my first covers, so I was still learning the craft.
What was the funniest thing to me was that it was only there because the “subtitle font wasn’t legible”, or some such. That was a relief to be honest because I’d seen much, much worse.
Truth is, I hadn’t revised it because I’d been waiting on a Special Edition that I had in the works in order to do that. However, upon reading everyone’s feedback, I decided that this time was as good as any to give the cover a chance at new life.
So, I say that to say this …
Thank you Lousy Book Covers!
* Oh, random side note …
To the person that said this:
“They both look white to me. Where does the interracial come into play?”
Which was a stupid, ignorant and foolish comment. You’re just showing your lack of knowledge in human biology because skin color HAS NOTHING to do with interracial relationships. You can be light skinned and still be of another race. #JustSaying.
I am pretty sure that that was the only comment that bugged me. Why? Because it showed how ignorant that person really is.
There were some select things that I would’ve wanted to say to this person in specific, but it wouldn’t have been lady like.*
However, apart from that, all of the feedback provided enough insight so as to lead me in the right direction when constructing the new cover. Although, I’d been postponing it for some time now, at this point, it wasn’t time to procrastinate any longer.
Lousy Book Covers, I ain’t mad at ya’! Promise. You just gave me a reason to up my game beforehand. So, cheers!
Anywho, from this funny circumstance comes the newly created cover for “MarcoAntonio & Amaryllis”.
