The great thing about self-publishing is nobody can stop me from titling the book something stupid like this:
6810

The map is close to done! I fixed a lot of the issues I mentioned previously. I also added a hint of color, and I think it looks fairly good now! But I won't post another preview so that you'll be compelled to buy the book to see the final result!!! :gotchawest:!!!!

So far I've drawn about 3 concepts that are strong contenders for becoming the cover design. It's pretty hard to balance a pleasing design with something that feels epic--along with making sure there's clarity of message and not too much detail overload.

I also really like minimalist cover designs, so I want to experiment with those, too. My strategy is to keep churning out concepts until I'm certain I have the perfect one πŸ₯°

The book hit a bit of a snag because I realized I was doing the margins wrong πŸ€ͺ Now I have to change the book's dimensions which means redoing a lot of the work I've already done--but I think this is a good move overall. Fortunately, I'm getting more and more comfortable with the book layout program I'm using (Scribus)

Here's your hype phrase for the week: the brick will be thick

I'm going to need some dimensions @Zules

Can't finalise the plans for my fortress of pain without knowing the size of the bricks.

I got the map back to where it was before I had to start over with new dimensions πŸ˜„ It's easier the second time around!

Started laying out the prologue again... Gosh, it's a hard task to fit these fat pages onto a standard book trim size (which is my goal since I want easier worldwide distribution). THEY ARE W I D E

it probably would have been faster to just redraw the cover from scratch πŸ€ͺ

Actually, it wasn't so bad--I was being a drama queen.
I'm done with the cover! Now I move on to THE GREATEST CHALLENGE... early chapter 1 pages that were drawn smaller than all other pages, in a different program, and used weird fonts.
