In following the Adam Savage rule of “Show and Tell” (which I’ve been doing a lot of lately), I’ve decided to write this blog.
I wrote a sci-fi novella titled “Saints of the Void: Atypical,” part of a pretty long series of short stories and books I have in the works, but I need a cover for this first thingy and probably for the others as I finish them. I’d do it myself as I’m capable and a have quite a few ideas for it, but time is quite precious for me right now. I can also have a cover designed for a small amount of money, but screw that: let’s get some GB love going.
So, I’m calling on / asking the Giant Bomb community for a little help. You can download the short novella from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, Sony, Smashwords, and so on for free (I'd prefer one of the first two, honestly). Submit some artwork to me via GB as a comment to this thread (PM me too, so I remember to double check) and I’ll pick my favorite before part 2 is out. Once that's done, I'll change the cover on all versions of the first project, adding a credit to the artist right below my own.
After part 3 of the story is out near the end of 2013, I’m going to compile it into Book One (or whatever), and probably throw in all the artwork I received as part of the compilation, and probably my own character sheets or concept work, giving credit to everyone involved.
Also, feel free to review the thing. It’s probably not too good, but I’m getting better and better the more I write, and honest constructive criticism is appreciated. Plus, I love the universe I’m building, so it’s nice to get this stuff out of my head and into public view.
And yes, this counts as marketing, but I work as a housekeeper so I’m not exactly loaded with options on how to promote.
Thank you so much to anyone who contributes, comments, reads, or reviews.
