Judging Books by their Covers
If you missed it, I did an interview with M.S. Corley over at LiteraryOutlaws.com.
Mike Corley illustrated the cover for ’til Death, and I wasn’t joking when I said that the cover sold some copies of the book by itself. People have straight up told me that’s the reason they picked it up.
Once upon a time, I was sure that I would either move to San Diego and write and pencil my own comics for Image or get work as a Disney animator (which, interestingly enough, was a goal of Corley’s too). My skill set never reached that level, but it was a lot of fun to talk with someone who has broken on through to the other side.
From marketing to editing, design, cover art, blurbs, reviews, there is just SO MUCH that goes into writing a book. I hope the outlaw talk with M.S. Corley is as interesting and fun to listen to as it was to record.
