First Mixed Blessings Book is VERY Close

Postby Deb Porter » Wed May 21, 2014 7:35 pm

I've been burning the midnight oil fine tuning the first of the "Challenge" books, and our first Mixed Blessings book, Simple Pleasures, is now very close. I just have a little more tweaking to do before I have a definite page count, then the cover can be finished, and it will be off to the printer.

Apart from editing, every Mixed Blessings book after this should be quite easy as the basic template stays the same. However, there will be a lot of gap filling required in all the future books, so stay tuned for opportunities to submit articles/poems/stories for any of these books.

With the publication of Timmy Boyle's book at the end of April, the Breath of Fresh Air Press door is definitely open and things are jumping. So get into the Challenge for chances to be published. Not only do you have that chance by placing in the Editors' Choice, but you also may be discovered just by entering. That's how I found Timmy.

AND don't forget the Page Turner contest. The winner each year will definitely be offered a publishing contract with Breath of Fresh Air Press.

Anyway, stay tuned. I will post something about the cover as soon as we have the front finalized (which it pretty much is right now).

Love, Deb

Thanks Rachel. Still labouring over it as we "speak." I'm a nit-picker, which is both a blessing and a curse. :lol:

Doing the final tweaks now and waiting for the CiP details from the National Library. The cover is done and looks exactly perfect. :-) I'll do a final read through while waiting for the CiP and then it's set to upload to the printer. So happy.

Happy Dance! Thank you Deb for all your hard work. And for believing in us! Once it's available will we be able to order the book through FaithWriters?

You're totally :coolsign .

Hi Lollie.

FaithWriters will promote it, but that will be to direct it to the Breath of Fresh Air Press website. However, within weeks of being available, it will also be able to buy through Amazon and all the usual online sources.

Lollie, you might want to sign up for the Breath of Fresh Air Press newsletter (on every page of the website) to keep up to date, or follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/BreathOfFreshAirPress)

The cover is now complete, and I'm just waiting to receive the CiP notification from the National Librare. Once I have that (any day), the book will be going to the printer. I will need to check a copy first, but I will be taking pre-orders within the next day or so.

I'll also be posting a picture of the front cover very soon.

Lots of great things happening.

Love, Deb
