Hey! Here’s a sneak peak at the new cover design I’ve created for my writing book, Yes! You Can Learn How to Write Children’s Books, Get Them Published, and Build a Successful Writing Career.
Do you like the pink and white quilt in the background? I just made that! Plus, can you find my two cats on there? They decided to sit on the quilt while I was doing a photo-shoot so I decided to put them on the cover! (Sandman is orange and white, Pitterpat is a Siamese snowshoe) And I put some of my favorite published books in the cover picture, too. What do you think?
I decided for a variety of reasons to self-publish my first book for writers in the Yes! You Can series.
One of the reasons I’ve decided to do that is because I wanted to update it and include a section on Common Core State Standards.
It’s been a fun journey. I had the book taken out of print for awhile. During that time, I wrote the new section on Common Core State Standards. Then I reformatted the entire book to fit into CreateSpace’s template. That took me some time, but whew! It was worth it. I really like working with CreateSpace from step one to the finish line. Most of all, because they put out a quality product and it’s totally free! (Okay, I did opt to pay $25 for it to be available in bookstores and I paid $8 for them to send me a copy of my proof to review. But you don’t have to do that…you can do it totally for free. And even at that price, it practically feels free ’cause it’s so cheap.)
And now I just have to spend time finalizing the proof checking for those elusive typos.
But as soon as I finish that, my book will be up and ready to purchase again! This time it will be available at online bookstores AND you can order it in at your favorite local bookstore AND you can order in multiple copies for using it to teach classes, too!
I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available, but for starters, I wanted to let you all get a sneak peak at the new exciting cover!
