    I agree, creative spellings will work against you if you're going after corporate work. You know your niche, though, so like you said, kbrumbaug86, it's a personal decision....

    Neither Gimpscape (?) nor Inkscape are drag and drop. Beginners can have at it. Don't cry at the funeral for your profession.

    It's a matter of negotiating what you want in the contract. If you want your name on the cover, ask for it. If it's important to you, insist on it. A professional publisher, however, will likely say no,...

    Typically, the publisher decides that.
    If self-published, then the author decides that.
    And it should be in your contract where it goes.

    Are you just doing the cover?

    "It doesn't match my monitor," is the observation of a neophyte.

  • Applying on the Sly

    Hey everyone...

    Quick question for you on-the-move ppl..

    How do you go about applying for other jobs when you're currently employed..

    yaknow... submitting resumes with your current employer's name and number, etc.
    to potential employers without getting your ass fired when/if they call for references??
    I'm a bit perplexed. Any help, appreciated.

    On my resume I listed my current employer as Confidential, supplying no contact information. In fact, I don't recall ever listing any employers contact information on my resumes or applications unless specifically asked. No company should be calling around on you prior to your first interview or contact.

    I usually go for the default 'References available upon request.' Most of the time, you can tell a potential employer the situation and they will respect it.
