38 Days to Publication - The Marketing Materials

Well, it's been a while since I've posted my progess and there's a reason for that. I'm pretty sick of reviewing this book right about now. I love it and hate it. This self-publishing business is hard work and if I have one piece of advice for anyone considering, try really hard to get a publisher first. I'd rather be writing my next novel and not designing marketing material. With that said, if you do decide to self-publish, it is one of the most draining yet rewarding experiences that you'll have ever. There is such a sense of accomplishment and "I really did it myself" that I'm sure it will be worth it...someday.

So, I'm back to my marketing materials now. I've finally got what I hope are my final drafts done. So, what do you think? Do they look homemade? Do they look appealing? Do the pique your interest in the book? If you don't like an element, tell me what you don't like and what you'd rather see. Don't let me go handing these out and mailing them to booksellers lookin' crazy, now!
I'm only including the front here. The back of both contain the back cover copy, email addresses, retail locations, and book details (size, length, ISBN number, etc.).
