You will be happy to learn that I finally got my proof book from Lulu. I followed the exact same steps I laid out in the bonus lessons of the new Writing Workshop videos. Except for the fact that I created the cover on my PhotoShop program. But honestly, I could have created the cover just as easily on Canva (like I describe in the video).
At any rate, it should be a couple of weeks before the box of books arrive. There were a lot of typos in my proof copy. I sure hope I caught them all. The cover turned out very nice. Lulu does a nice job on my glossy covers.
Andrea Carter and the Terrible Secret
Well . . . now that Trouble at the Line Shack is pretty much finished, I suppose I’d better get to work on finishing Terrible Secret. Of course, I’ve lost all of the suggestions from a year ago. Sorry! I think they are all back on the old blog, which is empty now. Feel free to give any fun ideas on how I can finish that book.
You will be happy (I hope) to see that I have managed to create a cover for the book. Do you know how hard it is to think up colors that aren’t the same as the original Circle C Adventures?? I’ve come up with orange/rust. Not my very most favorite, but the blending ends up looking too much like the originals. Why, you ask? Because I have to use one of the original covers in order to have a template, and there are only so many colors my PhotoShop can offer, depending on which color cover I begin with, and I’ve tried them all. This was originally the Family Secret cover (red). At least it’s different. Go ahead and tell me what you think. It’s okay. I can’t find enough different colors to offer a voting chance. Sorry! And I’m kind of locked into this template now (because of Long Ride Home Expanded and Trouble at the Line Shack).
