Passing the hat...

Just got a call from the publisher.  The photo I selected for the cover can't be used.  It showed a brand name in it.  And I can't just cover it up... because it's a very identifiable object.  Er... thing.  I mean, item.  Yes, I'm still trying my best to not give away the title and the cover.  Not for secrecy's sake but still because I don't love it.  The title nor the cover.

So, I select another photo.  One that was similar and was recommended by the publishing company.  I liked it even more than my original photo.

And I got another call.  To use THAT photo would cost me $6000.

Seriously?  I mean, SERIOUSLY?  Get serious.

So... the cover has gone back to the drawing board.

Wish I could draw.  It would be so much easier to just draw... at that drawing board.

Although that would probably cost me $12,000.
