IMPULSE cover reveal

I decided to do this like a Bandaid and just rip it off! The anticipation was killing me more than it was anyone else. I'm really happy with the end result, and think that it works well with the series. It was labor intensive, and I can't thank my friend Lea enough for hearing me whine and complain. I don't know if many Indie authors design their own covers, but I can tell you that it's something that I take seriously and invest a lot of time and attention on.

To give you an idea of what was involved: I had about 6 models to choose from. I ended up with 65 Mock-ups!!! 65!!!

Yes, different variations of each model/scene. I narrowed it down until I felt the model really fit well with the series. Face-forward is bold (this I know well), but it was time for Silver to come to the forefront and get up off the floor.

Before the book is published it may be tweaked a little, but this is it, so I hope that you are all as excited as I am about the release of Impulse. Due this Fall! :-)
