Just when I thought the hard part is over – I finished the revisions to Soldier a few days ago – I’m working with an artist for the cover. Leita Stevens is doing the cover art for Soldier. So far, she is capturing what I’ve imagined so well! As I emailed her tonight, I can’t hardly wait to see the final product. In my writing, I try to allow the reader some room for their own imagination by choosing not to detail every little thing about my characters or their settings. Some people have liked that. I can say that it has done me a disservice when it comes to trying to describe to Leita what the cover should look like. I have so few details that she and I are making things up as we go along.
And I couldn’t be happier.
