Taking stock

I sat down at 1am to play a “little bit” of Diablo 3 and now it’s almost 9am. Sounds about right.

I was looking at Facebook about a week ago and came across the image presently being used in my header, the one that will also be used for the cover of Last Summer. At first I pulled a total Urkel and thought to myself, “Did I do that?” before realizing that no, I did not do that. The image was being used for an article about something, I don’t remember. Seeing that made me really glad that I opted to commission G to do something original for the main stories. Well, original in that I know no one else will have my cover. The cover for Family Matters was a decision made mostly out of necessity as there was no single stock image anywhere that really conveyed the heart of the story. I looked. For a very long time. While I originally wanted to do a “standard” M/M cover, I quickly discovered that there was nothing out there that came remotely close to representing four main characters of three different races. But I’m glad it all worked out the way it did because I love the end result.

 Family Matters Revised Cover
(In case you’re wondering, yes the original font was changed.)

Two pretty awesome bits of news before I go. The Rising Son will be finished this weekend. Woo-hoo! This is presuming that D3 doesn’t suck me in again. I’ll try to resist the urge. Lastly, out of curiosity I did the math and discovered that Family Matters has been downloaded an average of five times a day since it was published. For having done absolutely jack squat in the way of advertising, I’m really happy about that. I know it’s probably because the book is free and free is a great price, but I’m still counting it as a win. 😀

All right, bedtime. Have a nice weekend!
