My editor just sent me an
email to let me know that the design team has
come up with a classy cover for Weekend Homesteader! Since the cover is
white, I've changed the background color on this post so you can see it
I promised myself
wouldn't be an authorial diva as I embarked on the publishing process,
so I'm holding my tongue about the fact that half the pictures aren't
my own. When I take a step back, I suspect the publishing house
is right to add in pretty things like yellow boots (even if I wouldn't
be caught dead in them) and tomatoes that are obviously storebought to
my eye. I'm also sad not to see photos of non-garden topics like preserving that are well represented in the book, but I figure there's only so much space and some things are easier to visualize than others.
Mark says he likes
so I suspect the cover is good. What do you think?
