Anyway: my request for advice is two-fold:
1. Here's the current cover. What do you, my awesome and creative friends-list, think of it (especially those who have read the book or the first version of it here on LJ (now f-locked))? I think it's pretty, and I like the angled printing and the pages, etc., but I'm not sure the picture/overall feel of the thing really captures the mood/themes of the book...not to mention there isn't a flower mentioned in the book...AAARRRGGGHHHH!!! (Although Manny's real name IS Rose, and her sister IS Daisy...LOL - okay, that's kinda funny now that I think of it... :D ). But I digress...
The one thing I really like a lot is my publishing company's imprint. :D I wish I could remember how I got the colours - LOL.
2. Has anyone heard of a site called Crowdspring? If yes, what's been your experience with it or what have you heard about it? I think I may give it a try in the hopes of getting something that matches the mood/theme of the book more closely. :(
Any input/impressions/comments/etc. will be greatly appreciated!!
In the meantime, I'm waiting for my hard-copy proof of the book to arrive next week. I paid extra for priority post because my real concern is the quality of the hard copy...if it's not good quality then I'm going to have to reconsider my options...
(Did I remember to say AAARRRGGGHHHH?? :D )
