Geeky Writerly Moment


Okay, so this is probably a really stupid thing to post, but I'm excited about it. I finally have hardcopies of all of my books up until now printed on Lulu. I have a bunch of betas that prefer that, and it is sometimes easier to find typos in them that way. It's also silly and time-consuming that I like to do all my own covers for fun, but I'm silly and most of my life is time-consuming. Anyway, so here they all are... all my books. Yay! I have them all in my hands--like a tangible thing. The top ones are the Honor books. Then, the Company of Him series. Finally, the strays that are stand-alones.

Scorched is still my favorite cover, I think.

Oh, and I should mention that it is especially silly to spend so much time on the covers since other than my hard-copy betas and me--no one else can get these books as they're private on Lulu. Yeah, anyway, it's still fun to see your name on the copy of a book--even if you're just printing it out to mark for typos.

  2. Well, I think it looks very nice. And its so nice to have such a prize of talent to point to and say, "I did those."

    Congratulations!

  3. Wow! Wendy they all look very cool. I think it's a great idea that you've done this. Even if your never published you'll leave an incredible piece of you with your family.

  5. Thanks, everyone. It still feels slightly geeky to be so excited to have one of each of them now.

  6. Whatever. That is so not geeky. I think it is fantastic.

    And you WILL be published!

  7. Of course you'll be published, that goes without saying :)

    And not geeky. Seeing your books line your bookshelf, the prelude to a dream. It's brilliant.

  8. I'm sorry if I implied that you may not get published. I'm sure you will be. This is something I tell myself as a possible reason to keep writing.

  9. I'm thinking about doing that with all of my short stories when the rights get reverted back to me, that way I can have them all in one place. Congrats on all those books!!!

  13. I think this is totally cool and I love Scorched the most too. Not geeky at all to design your own covers. I think it it one of the fun aspects of writing. Hmm...you've inspired me to design a cover for my new book.
