But … your name isn’t big enough.

(That’s my first thought every time I see a cover design.)


When I saw the first layout for my first book, I actually said, "I think my name's too big." That was the last time those words were ever spoken....


I really dig that cover. Even if I wasn't a rabid fanboy for the Hockensmith books that cover would have caught my eye, and probably ate it.

Great stuff!

It was a very fun read as well as tearing into the media and society. Not bit just shot may be my favorite line from this year.


Thanks, man! Hopefully, the cover'll catch a lot more eyes (and eat them) in the weeks ahead. We'll see....


Dean Wesley Smith has some advice for writers on covers - http://www.deanwesleysmith.com/?p=7531 - I think you and your artist did this one really well.


Thanks, Scott! I never miss one of Dean's posts on publishing. Ditto for his wife, Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Smart folks.
