October is slowly approaching (though yet far off) and I’m currently in the process of looking at possible covers for my book. There are a number of angles and views on theme the cover designer has taken and I’ve been given five or six current options to look at. I know what I don’t want, but articulating what I do want is not always easy. There are so many things to keep in mind that it can seem overwhelming. I realize too that it’s the designer’s work and it might not come out exactly how I want it, but that’s part of the reason I went into this without a fixed idea in mind. I want to see all the possibilities and be surprised. So far there are a couple options I’m quite excited about. We’ll see how that goes.
I guess Michael Jackson is big in the news lately, since his death last Thursday. I must admit to never being a large fan of Jackson himself, but some of his songs are incredible; in particular, my favourites would be “Thriller”, “Billie Jean”, “Smooth Criminal”, and “Beat It”. Beyond this I’m not as aware of his music, but am aware of his massive impact on North America and even world pop culture. Incredible man.
Final note: I’ve recently acquired a new domain name making this an even more official website. From now on you can get here by keying in www.stephenrowe.ca. Have at it!
