My Book Cover

I have been playing with ideas for my book cover. The book I have yet to write. Someone had suggested that it was a good way to begin to write a book.

I didn't really know what I wanted to do, and I had asked Christina Aldan if she wanted to take a stab at it, because I just did not know what I wanted it to look like. I had a previous version that was a start, but I wasn't feeling it. Then today I was looking at other people's covers, and had a thought. I went to adapt mine based on what I saw, but then wound up with something quite different. (Par for the course when it comes to me and "my" creativity.)

I really think this could be it, or at least some variation of it. I, of course, reserve the right to change my mind, LOL.

Having said that, I am also trying to figure out how to get the book written. I don't have the time, as I am working on doing other things to try to survive in the more immediate term financially, like being my artist self and creating for the fair/event in a couple of weeks. That takes so much time and effort, and I have already spent a few dollars in the hope that I can make it back and more.

What I would love is is to get money together for a book. It could mean another GoFundMe or GoFundMe-like attempt. I just don't know. Nothing really speaks to me, other than to perhaps see if I can get some people to speak to why my book is a good idea, via text and video, and that might be a place to start.


If you know me and believe that it would be a good idea, do you have any ideas or suggestions? If I could get the funds together for this book, it could be THE thing I focus on above everything else, and I could get-her done. 

I am a bit spent these days, but feel such an urgency to get things done. 

A lot of things. 

The thing is,
there is only one me.

If you believe in me, and what I am doing with this blog, can you please vote for me (and ask others to)? You can vote once every 24 hours (the more, the merrier! HO, HO, HO, LOL). It isn't so much about winning as it is about getting the word out into the world about the things that often go wordless. Thanks!

  1. Love the idea of starting with the cover first. It certainly makes the book seem more "real" . . . which may make it easier to start. There certainly is only "one you" . . . so pulling in some help will probably be important. Have you thought about dictating your book, then having someone else transcribe the dictation? Just a thought . . . going to vote for you now!

  2. I love this idea, I think it will help you decide what to write too. The cover for me always makes me decide if the book is worth reading or not. I think it is great cover and I would love to read his book. From the title it sounds very interesting too. Thanks for sharing
