Want to Participate in a "Cloaked" Cover Reveal Event?


So, you know I'm working on independently publishing my book Cloaked, which is "Little Red Riding Hood" re-imagined as a western.  Like my story in Five Magic Spindles, "The Man on the Buckskin Horse," was "Sleeping Beauty" re-imagined as a western.  Same idea, whole new cast of characters and setting and story.

I'm pretty sure you know about this because I've been talking about it on my blogs off-and-on for like a year now.

It's my first time doing the indie-pub thing.  I'm nervous.  I'm excited.  I'm terrified.  I'm thrilled.  And I'm almost done with this thing at last.  Like, seriously, this book will be out in September.  I don't have a firm date yet, but it's coming.  For real.

(This popped up in my Pinterest feed today.  Perfect timing.)

I'm going to be asking for some Advance Readers soon.  Very soon.  But first... I'd kind of like to do something fun to celebrate my cover being finished and ready to share.  I've been working with graphic designer Erika Ohlendorf on a cover for my book, and... it's basically done.  We've got like one more tweak to do.  Which means that next week, I will be sharing it with all of you!

I know a number of you, my lovely and supportive and encouraging blogging friends, have been looking forward to seeing what the cover will look like.  (And to reading the book, too, I hope!)  If you would like to join me in showing off the cover on your blogs or in social media this coming Wednesday, Sept. 6, please email me at rachelkovaciny at gmail dot com with "Cloaked cover reveal" in the subject line.

All participants will receive my gratitude, fake internet points, and an imaginary hug :-)

    1. Jessica, you're very awesome, did you know that? :-)

      I'm rereading the whole thing right now, rather than bopping around fixing stuff here and there, and I'm happy to say I still like it myself!

    2. Aw, thanks!! *hugs*

      I do that, too! It's good to get a fresh picture of the whole story, I think. (And to reiterate--I CAN'T WAIT. :) )

    3. Yeah, I've done SOOOOOO much nit-picky polishing up of the whole thing that I knew I needed to pull back and do one final read-through before formatting it for printing. See the whole picture after staring at one word at a time for so long, as it were :-)

      (Me either!)

  2. How much extra will it cost me to get an autographed copy?

    1. Um... the price of s&h to your house? I haven't 100% settled on the book's price yet -- I'm still messing with formatting and so on. But it'll be under $10.

  3. Oh my goodness, this is so exciting!!! I'm sorry I've been so remiss in keeping up with things around here, but this is so exciting! I would love to participate; can't wait to read one of your works for the first time!! :)

    1. And it is SO COOL that you're doing the indie-pub thing. I *ahem* actually have a writing project in planning myself, so I may at some point in the future be plying you with questions about indie publishing and all that. ;)

    2. Olivia, not a problem :-) I kind of dropped out of the blogosphere for much of the summer myself. Life happens!

      I have been getting good advice from a bunch of blogging friends about this myself, and I will happily pass along whatever I've learned when the time comes!

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
