Book Jacket design

I finally made contact with a media specialty company, concerning my book jacket design. Meeting is scheduled for sometime this week. Very excited about this. Primary reason for the decision to put the wagon before the horse, considering I'm writing the first draft is, the visual stimulation my imagination will receive.I need all the help I can get.

Having discussed this idea with published writer friends, I was made aware of the potential motivation that could be derived . Having an expanded photo copy of my book cover, hanging behind my computer on the wall, is in my eyes, nothing more than a tool. It couldn't do anything but help, considering the image of the cover shows it self to me constantly. Visualizations trigger plot details that are startling to me, mind you I'm new at this. And besides I think it would be cool, that's the nerd talking.

Anything to stimulate the imagination, right ?

It was very exciting to talk to my contact at the media company handling the design. I can see I will need to keep my composure when we meet, I'm easily persuaded to spend money! All in all it feels like a good thing, one that will pay dividends in the future. My final thoughts about the issue are, where did this story come from and why won't it leave me alone ! Well, actually, I think I can deal with it.
