Spider Goddess Update
I tend to get a bit obsessed with new projects sometimes. On the bright side, I’ve decided to go ahead and do a print edition of Rise of the Spider Goddess, to go along with the ebook. Yay! I’ve also been looking into cover art options, finishing up the annotations, and thinking about the best way to publish and promote this sucker.
This is what I think the text of the print version will look like:
I’ve also been messing around with cover font possibilities:
None of this is final yet. (And that particular color combination is giving me a weird Law & Order vibe…) But I’m having a great deal of fun.
It will probably be at least December before this is available, but I’ll keep y’all updated 🙂

In thumbnail, I thought it read “An Attempted Novel”. Yep.

Somewhere between Robin McKinley & Ursula Vernon. I love it.
Also, a touch of “Princess Bride” IN PRINT. Love the editorial parts of that.

I think it needs a “do not drink anything while reading this” warning!

Change it to “Prosekller Chronicles – Day 1” ;-).
How about a cover image where Jim slays a Thesaurus?

I’m hoping to get some author blurbs to serve as warnings 🙂

Too, too funny. Why not go all Princess-Bridey with the cover, in fact? I mean, the others are right in that it does share a certain annotated quality. 😉

Oh man, I am SO EXCITED you’re doing this. I love this sort of stuff, the over-the-top bad meant to be laughed at a bit. XD
I definitely think you should try to get Scalzi or somebody to help you re-enact the most over-blown bad 80’s Fantasy cover you can find for this. It would seem fitting, somehow. 😀
