I was just reminded why I love the
community so much. It's a great place where artist can connect and put themselves out there on a broader spectrum. I want to thank kaiverta
for the reminder.
Allow me to explain a little better: I am a writer. In fact I am about to be a self-published author and one of my dearest friends, rachelillustrates
is doing the cover art.
In the spirit of collaboration I'm encouraging all you illustrators out there to feel free to let us know. Tout your wares and let the writers know you're interested in designing for them! Writers, unless people strictly request you not solicit them peruse this community and ask your favorite illustrator to design your cover art. You'll be amazed what a well-designed cover does for your book sales. And don't *ever* be afraid to ask we admins for help. In fact, if you're just starting out and looking into self-publishing I highly recommend www.smashwords.com/
. Not to mention, seek out other writers to do your editing. Do a book swap and edit for each other. Use your greatest asset: this art community.
Thank you to all you fantastic writers out there who contribute to this group on a daily basis. Keep up all your hard work.
