As promised, I will be documenting IMAGO‘s publishing process. In the last post I told you about the general process and that the novel had been given a publication date by the editor. Well, in today’s post, let’s talk about the cover of the book.
First, any traditional publishing house will take care of your cover art and back copy for you as the process unfolds. Rogue is no different in this. Most contracts explain that the author has input on the design, but the publisher has final say. I have always wanted to work with David Sladek, and Rogue was gracious enough to allow me to use him as cover artist. David is a world class artist and lead concept artist for a national gaming company based in CA. You can check out his work at the following link:
I cannot wait to share the cover of IMAGO with you as we move forward. Remember, it’s a long process from contract to publication date. The cover art will be ready sometime in April. Until next week.
