Time for a refresh

It’s a good idea, every now and then, to update your covers. Especially when they start to look dated or when they are so wildly divergent from your new covers there’s a question about whether or not the authors are the same.

Glitches and life and editing and “Name the damn horse!” issues have abounded but the end is in sight and I will be releasing it this year in both ebook and print.

Somebody posted this to my Facebook page, wanting my honest opinion as a relatively successful author who is more into the nuts and bolts of business rather than mystical muses and other assorted writerly bullshit. I can’t take every request that comes along because I’m kind of busy writing stuff that gets me paid, but this one needs to get clubbed before any other aspiring writers buy into this line of defeatist thinking. Some ideas just deserve to be…
