I finished my latest novel… part 2…

a 3 copy

So, it is time to make a book cover! As I said, I am doing it all, right here, on the blog. And yes, I am using my younger daughter as the model. She is supposed to be Princess Hildread Halfmoon, the awesome main character. Yes, that is a helmet that I actually own. Hey, don’t judge me. The jacket is also mine.

Some of you might have noticed that the helmet is on backwards in this photo. That is because it isn’t supposed to end up looking like an American Army helmet when I am done in Photoshop. Princess Hildy leads the resistance army in the struggle against the evil empire in the novel… so that PVC pipe will end up being a spear, if this is the photo I choose to make into the cover art.

Or I might end up using that one. I told Mollie to give me her best war face. There are a lot of choices to make for this cover art. I am going to spend some time doing some mock ups, and then I will post those. Now it is all about the layout. Something that captures the spirit of the book, and the teenage princess who has to lead an army.

I will get back to you soon.
