Mixed Blessings - Simple Pleasures Cover

Postby Deb Porter » Wed Jun 18, 2014 1:37 am

At long last, the first of the new Mixed Blessings books is almost ready for release. Should be within the next week. For those not familiar with these books, they are the new books compiled mainly from winning Writing Challenge entries (I do call for "gap fillers" when some of the original authors are either not contactable or prefer not to have their winning entries used in this way).

So with the first of the new books (Mixed Blessings - Simple Pleasures) just around the corner, here's the cover.

Image

The aim is to keep the covers uplifting and happy, and this one always makes me smile. All future books will follow much the same template now, so everything should come together quite easily from now on.

Can't wait to actually hold the first of these books, so long in coming, in my hands. I know a lot of you probably feel much the same.

Love, Deb

The cover is quite an eye-catcher, colorful, tantalizing and "alive." It says Look inside. :D

The "One hundred bite-sized..." wording seems a little too "bite-sized" ( :D ) on the page, but that's a very non-professional opinion.

Yeah! :clap

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Thanks Lillian. Probably won't be so bite-size once it's book-size. :-) But we'll know soon enough. LOL. The first will be the guinea pig.

I love it and think it is very appropriate for what it contains; well done.

Blessings, Graham.
May we all get eyes to see and ears to hear,
A Revelation of His Word, crystal clear.
Admitting our need to be drawn in,
Less of self, more of Him.

My prayer for us all.
God bless us with the Revelation of His Word, Graham

I like the look on the woman's face...she's doing something she loves to do and the joy shows radiantly on her face. Isn't that what this is all about anyway...we're doing something we love to do...writing. :D :D :D
In the twilight of my years, may His Light shine more brightly.

That cover would make anyone want to buy the book, grab a blanket and picnic basket, go to the park and READ!

Perfect for life's simple pleasures, and they are the BEST!
God Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from the storms.
Children are our tomorrow
Keep them daily from the sorrow
Of the beasts in life

Thanks ladies. It is that joy of life that makes it such a great photo. It's captivating and a little contagious. :D

Good news. I stayed up until the wee small hours of the morning today and finished the final check of the file for Simple Pleasures, and at 1:45 am, I uploaded it to the printer. So I should be able to get a test copy of it early next week. (Hopefully!)

Once I've checked that it looks fine in print, then it will be available. Yay!

Love, Deb

Looking forward to buying my copy.

Why is mine "Yeah!" and yours "Yay!." Is it an Aussie thing? Will the authentic Yeah please stand up? :lol:

LOL @ Lillian.

Yeah is the slang for "yes." Yay is just the end of "hooray!"

Both work. :lol:

:oops: AH! As I live and breathe, no sooner had I posted this that it occurred to me the exact same explanation that you've given. But you're right, both work. :D
