Unexpectly, the covers are ready before the books.
Meanwhile, with the help of Martha Weibenson, I've got a cover ready for my book DEVILTREE. It was an original photo by me, photoshopped by Martha.
This book came very close to being published a couple of times -- to the point of actually being accepted at one point.
I rewrote it so many times, I swore I'd never go through that process again. Apparently, I have two modes. Simple -- write it in a couple of months. Complicated -- take two years and innumerable revisions.
SNOWCASTLES, ICETOWERS and FREEDY FILKINS were the first kind. STAR AXE, DEVILTREE , and -- apparently -- NEARLY HUMAN are the second kind.
I have a typewritten manuscript of DEVILTREE that needs to be digitalized and formatted. But other than that, it's ready to go. It might actually be the best book to start with, because I know it was vetted many times.
I guess if you believe in omens, the fact that I have the covers ready to go on two books and nearly ready on a third book means they must be meant to exist.
I'm Duncan McGeary, owner and/or operator for the last 33 years of Pegasus Books in Downtown Bend, Oregon. These days I'm writing books as well as selling them.
I'm the comic book guy. But even more so, I'm a book book guy. Books of all kinds. Big books and little books, children's and adult, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback and trade paperback and graphic novels. Books with more words than pictures and books with more pictures than words. They are all part of the book world to me, and I love being surrounded by them every day.
I also have a second blog: Pegasus Books, where I list the product coming in over the next week.
