Celebrate: Poll Coming & Giveaways

This week I'm celebrating:
1) I've almost finished the covers for my thriller, Coldest Night, and my CPs will help me narrow the field from 14 to the 6 or 7 best ones. What would I do without their help?!
2) I haven't decided when to have the poll for the covers yet -- but it's coming. :)
3) With creating covers out of the way I have something even more important to do -- FINISH THE BOOK!!
4) Perhaps doing covers before I finish the book seems odd, but I'll feel more secure once it's done (covers are 75% of the reason readers choose to buy!) and then I can concentrate fully on the manuscript.

Do you stick to an organized plan for your projects or sometimes throw caution to the wind and do what you feel?

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
