Liar liar pantser

First, I lied last week about that being the final book cover. It seems CreateSpace does not work and play well with dark colors, and we’re having to make some compromises. Of course I could just use a different cover for the paperback than the ebook, but I’m leaning toward consistency.

Second, NaNoWriMo starts in, what, ten days? I’ll be pantsing it this year, by necessity rather than choice. I’m a really big planner by nature. I’ve only tried pantsing once before and it was a disaster. It’s okay, I’ve got time built into the workplan for ignoring everything I do during NaNo if I have to. But who knows, maybe it’ll allow some brilliant ideas to spring up from the dark recesses of my brain, where the things lurking are… usually not brilliant.

So, wish me luck, even though I’m a liar? I guess is the point.

final cover smaller size

Here is the really final (we’re pretty sure) cover for Ghost in the Canteen. Let me know what you think!

Observant subscribers to my newsletter may notice that it doesn’t match the one I sent out last week–same artwork, different visual effects and layout. My cover designer did this one in the interim, and although I really love both, we agreed that this one gives better thumbnail.

November 6!
