Let’s make a cover for my new novel; a step-by-step blog series, and I want your input!… part 1…

The thing is… (hey, thing!, you haven’t been around here forever!!!)… that these mock-ups that I did a long time ago are no longer relevant.

z 53

That is because I had to rename the novel. It turns out that ‘the seven kingdoms’ is already a thing in ‘The Game Of Thrones’, which I hadn’t started watching when I began writing this novel.

z 51

So now it is called: The Princess Rebellion.

z 50

The model for these pictures is my younger daughter, Mollie. And no, she won’t be wearing modern military camouflage once I do the final changes in Photoshop. It is camouflage, but not… okay, I can’t explain it. You can read, unedited, a major portion of the novel, down there somewhere in my blog. Just type; The Seven Kingdoms’ in the search bar. What you need to know is that we are taking back the ‘princess fairy tale’ from the Disney Corporation!!! My princesses kick ass!

When we finish this series of posts, I want to have the best photo of Mollie, with some bushes behind her, and a beach in the distance, with some black sailing ships on the ocean, and maybe an island in the distance, with her wearing some home-made soldier gear. So please, talk to me as I do this. Tell me which picture of Mollie looks the most bad-ass. Tell me what font you like for the words. Tell me which background works the best. This is an interactive blog, dang it!
