Preparing to Print   1 comment

Front Cover UpdateI’ve spent the last two weeks formatting The Willow Branch for print.

I’m not a perfectionist. As I’ve said before, I worked in the mental health field for 15 years and professionals tell me I have a high commitment to quality that does not quite tip over into perfectionism.

If I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it right because I want my readers to enjoy not just the story, but the process of reading the story.

That was a lot of work!

Today, I finally got to see the digital version of The Willow Branch in print.

I knew I had it in me to design a professional quality cover without resorting to a professional designer. Not everyone can do this, but I’ve been involved in desktop publishing in a professional capacity for a long time. I just didn’t expect it to be so hard to meet CreateSpace standards and it turned out, it wasn’t, but that their auto vetter was confused for reasons they aren’t explaining. So, after three uploads that threw errors and an email asking why I kept getting the same error message that didn’t make sense (no, really, my front cover image is really truly on the right and my back cover image is really truly on the left), I got to see the result today. It’s one thing to see it in a flat image on my computer and another to see it in 3-D view.

GORGEOUS!!!!

Full Cover for CS

I’ve ordered my proof copies and hope the paperback will be available by Thanksgiving!

Thank You, Breakwater Harbor Books   Leave a comment

I want to thank Breakwater Harbor Books for inviting me onto their imprint, and especially Scott Toney for helping with promotion of my online launch this morning. I think it’s been highly successful so far and a big part of that was waking up this morning to find Scott had been about his business.
