Explorations is heading to the printers this week, so I thought it was about time to post the front and back covers. Drum roll please!
Kickstarter supporters got to vote on a couple of different cover designs earlier this month. My Coral Dancer bracelet definitely came out ahead in the voting for the front cover. Its bold colors carried the day.
The back cover features a collage of works by my seven featured artists: Georgia McMillan, Wendy Hatton, Cynthia Machata, Jennifer Porter, Nancy Dale, Janice Cuozzo and Natalia Malysheva.
The book topped out at 174 pages of freeform beady goodness. Each of the featured artists has a five-page spread of their work. Explorations also includes works by fourteen additional artists besides yours truly.
Once the book is at the printers, I'll have a clearer idea of when I will have books in-hand. At that point I'll set up my Etsy store to accept pre-orders. I also hope to have a Kindle version out by mid-December. That's a whole separate endeavor, and should be 'interesting' to say the least as this will be my first attempt to publish for Kindle.
But for now, I'm just going to bask in the glow of the new covers.
