Mixed Blessings Book 1 - Simple Pleasures

Postby Deb Porter » Thu Mar 20, 2014 7:05 pm

Quick update on the progress of the first of the new books from the Challenge. Simple Pleasures is halfway through the layout stage. After that, it will need to be checked through a few times for a variety of things, but then it will be pretty well done.

The cover is in the process of being created (but we need the final page count before we can wrap that up).

At this stage, I'm anticipating a fairly confident release by April 30.

One thing I know for sure, it's looking good. As I'm laying the book out, it's like seeing these old Challenge entries through fresh eyes. It's going to be a bumper book of blessings. A mix of blessings, to be exact.

Love, Deb

Hey Deb, for some reason I thought I'd be in this first book. Did I misunderstand the email I received several weeks ago?
God Bless,
Bryan

Bryan, the release you received should say which books you are in. I'll have to go and have a quick check back through my list.....

Back again. No, you definitely misread it. You are in at least four books (didn't check thoroughly), but they are all later ones. (Sorry.)

If you've got a copy of the release form, the Appendix has the list of books you're in (and the number they are) right at the back.

Having said that, PLEASE jump in when I post about "gap filling" for the books slated for publication before that. There are LOTS of gaps, in Book 2 as well. We used about four gap-fillers for the first book, and I think there are at least that many in Book 2. I'll be posting opportunities to submit for those vacant topics very soon.

Love, Deb
