I am so excited I could burst. This weekend, Kevin Bolk gave me the final draft for the cover illustration.
If you’ve been playing along, you’ve already seen the original sketch. The final cover is actually pretty true to form:
I’m really impressed Kevin’s ability to read my mind and draw what I was hoping for—without a lot of guidance. It helps that I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time.
It was really important to keep the tone of this book light, even though it gets pretty far into the weeds of journalism practice. That’s why I decided on a cartoon cover and added fictional stories to help illustrate the technical lessons of each chapter.
Otaku Journalism will be available in the Kindle Store on Wednesday, March 19 for $5.99. I can’t wait to share this labor of love with you!
