The Evolution of a Book CoverCreating a cover for The Trouble with Murder has been a completely new, often trying, occasionally frustrating experience.
The entire publication process has been an exploration into so many things I didn't previously understand or have any experience with—and sometimes things I'd never even thought of before. While it has been incredibly rewarding and satisfying, it has also been exceptionally challenging and time consuming. And naturally, riddled with false starts and outright mistakes.
As it is when undertaking a project of any sort as a novice, one must ultimately become an expert in order to succeed. I am by no means an expert in book covers at this point, but I have come a thousand miles since I began this project eight months ago.
