I was unsatisfied with my attempts to design the cover for Zack Jackson & The Cytherean Academy, so I hired an actual graphic designer to do it for me. His preliminary work was so good, I’m having him re-do the graphic design for Zack Jackson & The Cult of Athos, as well (although, the cover art will remain the same). Other than that, Zack Jackson & The Cytherean Academy is finished. I’m ready to upload the file to Amazon, but I still need a product description/blurb, so that’s holding things up. I’m really horrible at writing those. It’s more challenging than one would think to condense a 92,000 word novel into a couple of paragraphs and making it sound enticing without giving away all the juicy bits. It’s not something they covered in any of my writing classes.
Anyway, it’ll be available as soon as I’m satisfied with my blurb. I’ve asked for some feedback on it from the “usual suspects,” so I hope to have it finished today. Then, I’ll get it to my designer and hopefully have the cover within a few hours. After that, it could be 24 hours before it’s available on Amazon. I’ll definitely make an announcement when that happens. In the meantime, if you haven’t picked up Zack Jackson & The Cult of Athos yet, it’s still (and will remain) 99¢. The Kindle edition will automatically get the new cover even if you buy it with the old one. If you want a new cover on your print edition, I’d wait, however.
