Moving On

It is official. I have successfully converted my novel, "Angels Unaware," for CreateSpace and Kindle.

It is a leap of faith to self-publish a story that has been "out there" for two years, but with the demise of Draumr Publishing, I had the choice of undergoing the submission process again, which would make it unavailable until such time as I was accepted by a new publisher and the new book was ready (which could take up to to two years or more), or to get it back on the lists as soon as possible.

My oldest son, who is an accomplished desktop publisher, did my new cover. I think it is beautiful!

Now all I have to do is replace the old cover on my web site, Facebook, and anywhere else it is shown. I'm not sure what is going on with Amazon, as it is showing both covers, but I assume the old one will disappear in time.

Or not. The old cover of "I'd Rather Go to California" is still up with the notation that the book is no longer available. I don't know why they don't just delete it.

Now to do the same with "The Lunch Club." I'm about halfway through formatting it. I have an idea for the new cover, but with this rain, the picture I have in mind will have to wait for a sunnier day.

I'm sitting here drinking a cup of vanilla chai tea as I contemplate all that still needs to be done before I can move on to a new project.

Whew. maybe I'll just take a break and read awhile!


  1. I love the cover, Sandy. Good luck with your other projects!

  2. I love it - love the butterflies! I did the same thing with two of my books and the old covers are still there on Amazon too! Guess we have to ask them to delete them? I never tried that before. Your son is very talented. Wish I could do things like that! We also have dark dreary weather and have been neglecting my writing - drinking tea or coffee (like you) and reading a lot!

  3. I love the cover! Congrats on getting your book out there again!

  4. WOOOOO!!!!! Go Sandy!!!!! Congrats my friend.
