My Book Cover Is Ready!


I'm excited!!! I just got the file with the picture of my new front cover and I love it!

To give you a little background, Kregel Publications was SO gracious and allowed me to submit several different photos I took that I felt were a good representation of my book. They liked what I sent and decided to use this one. The color and angle have been tweaked a bit and I'm so happy with the job they've done.

My understanding is the book will be posted on Amazon.com and several other online book sites for pre-ordering by the end of this month at the earliest, but could be up to mid May on some sites.

Watch for it and I hope you'll be willing to send the link to friends and family who might be interested in buying a copy. If this book is successful, they'll probably be offering me a contract on the second one, so any help will be SO appreciated from all you wonderful readers.

That IS a nice cover. As we all know, covers are VERY important. :) I have a friend who I want to model for the cover of one of my books but it's been so long since I wrote it. As far as I know she's still interested. It's good to know some places will let you do that.

What a cool cover! Congratulations on your book! I hope that I'll be able to announce my book some day. I'm happy for you!

Miralee, congratulations! What a blessing you will be to all your readers. There is nothing like that feeling you get when you walk into a store and see your book sitting prettily on a shelf. You just want to walk up to all the customers and say, "Hey, let me direct you to the third shelf down, fifth book over." Ha! In fact, I just happened to post a blurb on ACFW about the same time you sent your note of excitement. Isn't ACFW a great place to share our joy? Blessing and Hugs, Shar
