At a Crossroads
Long story short- my publisher, Running Press, asked me to create an image for a poster for them to hand out at this year's book expo in NYC. The theme they requested was "books & E-books". I made two images, and this was the one they didn't choose, and of course it was my favorite. Ha! That's okay though, because now I can share it with you.
The two characters..well, my publisher didn't want one winning over the other, or fighting, etc. Supposedly, E-books have actually brought on more sales, which in turn have brought a bit of an uptick in real books. (That's what I've been told anyway. I'm sure I'll hear otherwise in the comment section). If you are a regular visitor here, you'll know that is my usual modus operandi- fighting, some sort of embarrassment, tragedy, and so on, so this took a while to come up with. In the end though, I was happy with it. It has a jet-pack for Pete's sake, how could I not be happy?
