My artist-friend sent the study for the cover last night, and I was pleasantly surprised by his work. It was his first time to design a book cover (a romance novella at that), and I liked how he made it cartoonish. I felt it matched the story's vibe.
I just hope I can mold the story in its best version possible. I feel like I'm a horseshoe craftsman, heating up and pounding the story into shape.
