You Never Know How Things Will Work Out in Publishing

In this post, I talked about how I was having cover challenges with the new release of ANOTHER REGULAR BUD. Dawne Dominique, a talented cover artist with, created something wonderful, but I was afraid it would confuse readers.

So we opted to shelve the wonderful cover she created and we went with something more like the cover for A REGULAR BUD instead.

And last night the light bulb went off in my head while I was submitting a new short story to loveyoudivine titled, BURY IT, OFFICER. And I had that Ah-Ha moment I don't get very often. The cover Dawne had created for ANOTHER REGULAR BUD that we'd shelved was absolutely perfect for my new short story, BURY IT, OFFICER. So I shot off an e-mail to see if we could still use it and she said I was in luck.

This almost never happens. I couldn't have planned if I'd tried. And it's one of the exciting things about publishing because you never really know what to expect and things are always happening by accident.
