That means I need to buckle down and complete the second draft, give beta readers a month to read it, and then do a 3rd draft before I pitch it on May 5th. That gives me 3 months to Get 'r Done. I got this!
In addition, I've been playing around with some additional concept art for the cover, in case Shadow Mountain or another traditional publisher doesn't pick up the story and I decide to self-publish. But seriously, who could turn this down. Right?
So here is the concept cover art. It still needs a makeover by a professional, but this is the direction I see it going. Let me know what you think of the cover in the comment section below.
