I’m having a baby!

Ah ha, that got you. But I sorta feel like that with each new book. I just received the last chapter of FINALLY LOVE from the Bonnie K the proof reader. Now just a little more tweaking and it is off to the printers for a ‘proof’ copy.

It is thrilling to see the book coming together. So in a couple weeks I should know the costs, and be able to hold the book to see if the cover is what I am hoping.

One thing I am gong to ask for suggestions about is the type of paper. I have used ‘white’ for all my books up until now. But I have been thinking of ‘off-white’ this time what do you think?

White or off white?

So, I am off to change a couple things and smile again. This book is about 275 pages, it is funny I think all my novels have been +/- 10 pages of that. That must be the limit of my thinking!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by. Again this is the cover.

It is very hard to trust yourself, if you are not honest with other folk.

Congratulations on the birth of your new book. It must be exciting! I really never paid much attention to what color the pages of a book were so I don't think it matters much. I wish you much success with it.

Off white for a story that sounds like love. Congratulations.
