Boom, Boom Weekend!

Have you ever had one of those weekends where you think you haven’t achieved a thing, but you actually did? Where you’re up early and turning in late and at the end of the weekend nothing looks disturbed…other than you maybe? I had one of those weekends—one filled with surprises to say the least.

BUT...I did get my book cover completed. I’ve been preparing for this publication for a long time, yet it didn’t seem real until now. My dark, psychological suspense, Net Switch, is coming alive. I am very pleased with the cover, and I’m even more excited to be able to say my cousin, Brian Baer, did the cover art. If you want to see more of Brian’s artwork, head on over to his website: http://brianwbaer.daportfolio.com/. Danke schön, Brian.

Since I created my poetry book trailer, Sipping a Mix of Verse, and enjoyed doing it, I wanted to tackle this book trailer. Of course, I had to make this one different to keep with the theme of my novel. Like movie trailers, book trailers promote books to intrigue enough of people into buying it.

  9. Hey, sorry I did not comment earlier but I was kind of wrapped up in my own excitement about his whole experience. I’m very excited for you and again I want to thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. You have no idea how cool this is for me. My art was something I use to keep hidden but I hope this chances that.

    Thank you

  10. Hey Brian, No problem. Things have been so hectic in my life recently that I haven’t had much of an opportunity to keep up on my blog. I’m excited and hope this gets your art seen.
