Interviews at the Clubhouse and sundry

Petrol Queen
Some of you know S.K.S Perry (sksperry) from here on LJ. Those who don’t are in for a real treat on Tuesday when my interview with Steve goes up. I’ve done dozens of interviews over the last few years, and this is certainly one of the best. It helps when you have a great interviewee. Steve’s quite witty, and boy does he have a few stories to tell about getting his work out there. Hope you’ll drop by on Tuesday!

And more exciting interviews are scheduled for August and September. Stay tuned!

On the writing front:

I’m doing a final draft of my novel The Wedding Cortège. Yes, believe it or not, I wrote a high fantasy with princesses and knights and wizards and romance and…okay, the magical systems have an outré psychedelic bent—I just don’t call them that. It should be out in a month or so. Here’s the cover.

With all due respect, I would like to give feedback on your cover.
The weird light streams need to be toned down. They cover up whatever is in the background behind them, i.e. I can only see three faces on my monitor. This may work for a print version, but doesn't work for an e-version.
The title and author name work well, however.
Hope this helps. :)

I'm sure the artist/photographer Marshall paid for the right to use this image wouldn't be amused if Marshall started altering his work. And, you know, violating the licensing agreement.

no offence intended. In your position I would want someone to tell me their monitor had trouble w/ the image, since ebooks are so important nowadays.

I guess I should put this in my profile, but while anonymous comments are welcome, I wish the author of such would sign them. Unless they're signed “Requires Anonymity.” ;-)

Thanks for your input. I wish I could see it on your monitor, because it looks fine on both mine.

Actually, I felt very lucky to find this pic. Belena in the novel is dark-haired like the bride above, and the magus in the book is bald like the fellow above. One problem I've had with my two other novel covers that I designed myself is that the image didn't tell the reader this was a fantasy novel, so I had to put the word FANTASY on the cover. I rather like the white light streams, as they make it apparent this is a fantasy.
