Book Covers ~ A Challenge and a Blessing! by DL Larson

It's here!  My book cover arrived today! 

My task is to look it over and decide if there are any mistakes and then notify the publisher with the changes I want to make. 

The only thing that needs changing is the price.  Right now it goes for $00.00.  We writers get
paid little enough, I don't want to give it away. 
The price will be $15.95 in book format, much less
in e-book.

The size will be 6 x 9 inches, with a soft cover.
My family and friends helped choose the cover. I had thousands to pick from.  I think we did good!
Thank you family and friends for your input.  It made the decision much easier hearing various view points on what worked and what didn't.  Angie, Amber, Shannon, Pat, Cindy, Wendy, Gina, Judy, Marge and Kurt ~ thank you, thank you!

I'm closing in on the final product ~ a finished and published book.  It's been a long, long time coming.  Once all is done, my book will be available in various places:  Ingrams, Baker & Taylor - valuable venues for bookstores and libraries; and Barnes & Noble - great for consumers, especially e-book readers. 

I've seen the text layout and now this!  Let's hope it all comes together soon.  I'll keep you posted!

Til next time ~
