Under Cover

My first book, The Pulse of Mixed Media, is being released by North Light Books in March 2012. Working on this project has been nothing short of phenomenal. With just over six months to go, there is still a lot of work to do. Right now I am in the midst of my first round of manuscript editing and, believe it or not, I am loving every minute of it.

In between all the hard work it takes to birth a book are many peak moments. For me, one of these was seeing the cover for the first time. And another peak moment is occurring right now in real time: sharing the cover with you. I think I feel much like a new father who sees his child as the most beautiful thing in the world. 


More details about the book will be shared as it gets closer to the publication date. Be sure to join my mailing list to receive upcoming eNewsletters that will include updates about the book and related events.

Robert said...

Amazing, Seth! Your project is really beginning to take shape, and with all of the hard work you have left to do, it's certainly gratifying to see some of that (earlier) hard work paying off! The cover is striking, and, I think, a great visual representation of the title. You must be so proud to have made it to this point realizing that all of your effort so far has truly paid off, and that your book--once just an idea in your head--is coming close to being a reality! Congratulations, and best wishes to you as you edit, revise, and finish bringing The Pulse of Mixed Media to life!
