I am thrilled to announce some updates on my book. It's quite the process!
Last month I completed the developmental editing stage and am now onto the last copyedit revision. I am happy to say that this brings me one step closer to my publication date in late August/early September. The anticipation is killing me too, I know.
Now for the visuals. I have been working closely with my book's illustrator, Benjamin Wade. I met him through Louisville's duPont Manual High School's Visual Arts Magnet. He's an incredibly talented artist and I am so impressed with the witty and creative images he has illustrated for my book.
Aside from finalizing illustrations, I am also working on The Coffee Run's cover design. As much as we hate to admit it, we sometimes unconciously catch ourselves judging a book by its cover. That's why I am spending ample time creating a cover that will appeal to as many eyes as possible (with excellent content too, of course).
Sponsor update: I'd like to thank my Sponsors for going that extra mile in helping me fund my book. Expect your signed copies and letters of appreciation to be presented to you mid-September. As of right now, your names and businesses have been proudly printed in my book. Your support is incredibly appreciated!
One last thing - I recently published an article for Jack Myers' Media Village site. This company is working on a really cool platform that focuses on students in the first five years of their careers. Read my post here: https://www.mediavillage.com/article/intern-fail-learn-repeat/
That concludes my update for now. Thank you again for your support. In the meantime, spread the word about The Coffee Run!
All the best,
PS - What do you think about my updated logo? (Hint: the "O" and the "R" are a different color for a reason. See it?)
