Kay, so I met this artist at this conference that I'm at. Her work blew me away. I totally want to have her do a cover for my book. Should I ever self-publish this steampunk novel I'm working on, she's going to be first on my list. You can see her site at www.erikastudio.com. Totally professional, over-the-top brilliant book art.
Also, my workshop presenter, Ann Dee Ellis, is now my new best friend. She's hilarious in person... and her books are sad, but at the same time, they're funny. You can find them on Amazon, of course, but if you want to support indie books they're also at The King's English bookstore, and you can find Ann Dee at her website. She also is on the blog Throwing Up Words.
That's all, really, for today. LOTS OF WRITING TO DO. Loving it. This conference has opened up my writing in such a great way.
