The final cover art has been completed - thanks to everyone who voted or gave me feedback - YOU selected the cover!
Greetings! Things have been progressing well, the book is in the final editing stage and we are working on the cover art.I'd like to get your opinion on some of the cover variations under consideration. Please visit the webpage http://www.secretagentman.org/covers.html and check out the four covers pictured there.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or respond to this message and tell me which cover you like the most.If any of you artistic types out there have suggestions to modify the layout or fonts etc. let me know that also.And if anyone (with graphic art skills) wants the background image of "the alternate universe" to use to mock up some cover suggestions yourself, I will send it to you.I only have six days before I have to settle on a final cover design, so keep that in mind!Once again, I thank you all for supporting this project! We are on schedule for a late October release! Years ago, I decided to get the book out this fall because November is the 100th anniversary of Einstein's general theory of relativity - his greatest work! That should help the publicity factor because the media will be looking for "fresh" Einstein angles and stories to cover. Donald Trump running for president also is great timing for a potential publicity angle.
I'm happy to announce that SecretAgentMan has reached 82% of its funding goal! Thanks so MUCH to all of YOU who made that happen! I'm so appreciative and humbled by the number of people who have expressed the desire to help me out with this.
Today is Social Media Blitz Day! (or tomorrow if that's when you get this message)I'm asking, (pleading) with everyone to Please post and Share the following link in one or all of your social media accounts; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or whatever else you social media fanatics do . . . http://www.sam2.org . . . along with a ringing endorsement and / or a gentle armtwist if that's what it takes! You may wish to ask your friends to help you out in order to build your chain of support. Or just recommend the book to read or to order as a gift for their friends who love reading fiction. If we can keep the momentum going and generating pre-orders of the book it will WIN an Inkshares Publishing Contract!
Now it's time for the final push to get to 100% before the Funding period runs out on Feb. 26! So please pass the word around - some of you might even consider ordering extra copies to give as gifts. Whatever you can do is Very Much Appreciated! With YOUR help, We CAN make this happen!
