I hope you aren’t getting tired of me walking you through the various aspects of my journey to getting Mik Murdoch, Boy Superhero published. I’ve had the great fortune to speak with many authors about their own publishing experiences, and now that I’m on that same road, I want to tell you everything I can about my own in hopes that it will help you.
With that in mind, in today’s episode, I talk to Jeff Minkevics, a fantastic artist and close friend. I had the great fortune of having Jeff create the cover for Mik Murdoch. We sat down at a local pub and talked about covers over beer and wings. It was a fun way to spend the afternoon but it means there is a bit of noise in the background. I hope you don’t mind the sound quality and enjoy the discussion.
I also talk a little more about reviews in the Tips and Typos section. I’ve always known feedback and reviews are important. Now I have a much clearer understanding since I am relying on them myself.
I hope you enjoy the show.
