I have been working on a poetry project for about three years, and I am thrilled to be nearing the editing and formatting stage. Part of this phase is choosing the outward appearance for the book. Although I am capable of completing the editing and formatting on my own, I am choosing to enlist an editorial team. I know it will add credibility to the hard work I have done in writing these poems if other eyes scrutinize and design the interior of my book. In the past, I have relied on stock-templates for my covers and included personal touches. But, I know my limits. Creating a wholly-unique cover that represents the genre and this collection is out of my wheelhouse.
