Yesterday I posted the cover for The Halley Branch. Today I want to say a few things about it.
Several months ago I asked some people how early they do a cover reveal. i was very surprised that most said 4 to 6 months. I had someone say their publishing company did the reveal before the book was even finished! So now that it is out there, I can use the image when I talk about it.
Some of you read the rough draft of the book when I posted it as a serial. Do you recognize this image?
This is the image that I used for all 30 chapters that I posted, as well as the table of content.
When I told people I was working on The Halley Branch again, a few weren’t sure what I was talking about. That is, until I showed them the image. When they saw the image, everyone of them instantly started talking about what they remembered.
That is why I wanted to use this image.
The original idea was to use the image as is. I showed it around, and everyone hated it. Those same people like the version I posted yesterday.
So that is the history.
