Beyond the Ocean's Edge

Getting Closer!

Friday evening I got two variations of the cover for Sailing Dangerous Waters from Outskirts Press.  I've decided to go with this one.  It is within a gnat's ass of what I was looking for, and it pretty much matches the cover for Beyond the Ocean's Edge.  Again, something I wanted to do.  I've asked for a few changes on the back cover, ideally to make the back cover text easier to read.  But anyway, here's the front cover, something that you will probably see me splashing all over the place in the next days, weeks, and months.

On another note, this coming Friday and Saturday, I'm going to be taking part in the Spokane Club's annual Artisans Marketplace.  Primarily I'll be selling copies of my first book, but I'm also going to have copies of the cover art for both books for sale as well.  I've printed numerous copies of those and other paintings that I've scanned into the computer, but usually they've just been printed on regular paper or on card stock.  I'll be printing those for the sale on regular photo paper... wow are they bright!

I really wish computers, scanners, and printers like we have today would have been around in my earlier years.  I think I ended up giving away or selling a lot of paintings that I had done, and once they are gone there's no way to share with anyone else.
PS  Now I've got to get back to a final read through and review of the edited manuscript.  I've got about five of 26 chapters left.
