This morning, I got up a little sleepy, needing my cup of tea and wondering what the day might have in store for me. I’ve been waiting to hear from the book designer and now I just feel like celebrating because my inbox has the cover edits for Katie Shaeffer, Pancake Maker and the cover is going to be just excellent! I’m so excited! Yay!
After lots of studying other picture book covers and how they are done and lots of consulting with people who had some design knowledge, I feel the cover has gone through a complete transformation! I always loved Paula’s image of Katie in the chef’s hat but now the image has been highlighted and showcased in just the way I had envisioned. Now if the interior edits are just as good, the book should be ready to go in November, just as I had hoped.
Thank you so much to those of you who commented with your thoughts on creating book covers; you were very helpful. I can’t wait to show you the finished product.
