Riding Out The Storm

I finally have a cover for my first nonfiction book, a memoir of the darkest period in my life. Collin--who also did the photography--finished the cover last night, after much nagging on my part. I had been posting excerpts from the memoir, as well as Sam's Story, on my Wordpress blogs, but I now post them to a much larger audience at Wattpad.

Pretty cool, huh?

  4. @ Cheryl:
    @ Ivy:

    Thank you both!

    The only thing we'll be changing is the color of the lettering. I got an email from Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt, pointing out that it disappears when the image is thumbnail-size.

    I'm thinking red....

    1. Yeah, Tim has to deal with that when his stuff goes thumbnail for his gaming stuff. But that's an easy fix.

      Best to you.

  5. Nice picture. It's difficult to get everything just right, once you're ready to place it up for sale.

    1. We've had to make adjustments to every one of mine so far. We've even done completely new covers for a couple of them.

  11. Goodness you must be Norma, you might have to give them a bit of a nudge, sometimes they need it :)

  12. I think it takes some incredible courage to publish a memoir. I've debated taking on a project like that about my special needs brother, but I could never write about myself that way...not unless I was journaling just for me. Way to go!

    1. It was hard at first, Crystal, but once you get started, there's something surprisingly liberating about it.

      Reviews by Amazon trolls will be another matter entirely....
