And We're Off



First spread of the book...actually totally redone after spending three hours on another version and completely scrapping it after looking at it in the mirror. Those mirrors are the worst critics aren't they? They show you every mistake within seconds.

The lines are basically marks of where the text will be. I'll be adding the text later via Photoshop.

I am already in love with Antonio! And I think you are right to present your work as completely as possible to publishers. Some lucky editor is going to love it!

WOW! (I can't decide my reaction...it's cute, interesting AND funny.)

I think that "Shelley" nailed it- cute, interesting, and funny!! :)
How sweet is this image of him walking along the horizon deep in thought?

And I agree, a mirror can be pretty cruel... great idea for a critique buddy when you need one!

i always forget about using a mirror - great tip - though they sometimes work TOO well!

Antonio is so sweet - love his round tum.

Antonio looks like a tenor to me! I am sure his dream and yours will come true!
