Sneak Peek at new cover reveal for LJ and Rom book #1 – The Car

If you have read my post about How NOT to self publish a book – a short memoir, you know that I am doing things all out of order for this first book, and still obviously am. Pay no mind, and that simple fact I will not let hinder any kind of progress that may come to fruition.

I wasn’t financially prepared for a book launch and simply hitting publish, even though the book wasn’t professionally edited ( make no mistake, it is now ), was enough excitement on this journey at the time I did it. The current cover was designed by me and with so much anticipation blowing through my veins, I just couldn’t stand to wait another day before publishing LJ and Rom book #1, even though the cover wasn’t the best it could be, among other things. I know that covers are so important – every aspect of a book is so important. So with that being said ( drumroll ):

Yes. There is a new, professionally DRAWN cover coming soon for LJ and Rom book #1 and I’m super pumped about it:

LJ and Rom’s stolen rally race car. Artwork by Mr. Dirk Hays.

There it is in all it’s glory – the stolen rally race car LJ and Rom Saved Heavy Metal in. Enjoy – I cannot wait to show you the completed cover soon. I hope it blows your Fred Durst backwards hat off.

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley
