09/11/2005 Archived Entry: "My new book is out"
IT APPEARS THAT MY NEW BOOK IS OUT. Simon Jester discovered it before I did. I really like the cover, which was done by some folks with heavy credentials.
Unless they self-pub or reach the top ranks of mainstream publication, writers have no say over covers and are often not even given any say over the titles of their books. I'll admit this title was a surprise to me (mine was "Your Job -- Your Way" or something like that) and is a bit of a mouthful. It definitely describes the book's content, though. I love this cover without reservation. In the past, Loompanics favored covers in the style of underground comix, which I always enjoyed, but which never felt like me. Wow, this one looks very "uptown." And very liberating.
