Like pulling teeth

“If you like a challenge and are quite computer literate, you might want to consider purchasing your own publishing software and doing your book covers and layout on your own.”

~ Ben Peters in “Birthing the Book Within You”

Note the word choices of “challenge” and “on your own.” Peters wasn’t kidding.

Formatting an entire book and designing a book cover all by myself requires all the skills I learned as a copy editor and marketer.

It’s not for the faint of heart. On an otherwise ordinary Saturday night or any other time.

P.S. Happy birthday to my nephew who was joyfully born on the same date as my late brother. And the president of the United States. Talk about a star-studded astrological date.

  1. Which president? The current one? Hmm. Are we sure we know when he was born? 😉

      “When,” I believe is a settled question. It’s “where” that Donald Trump isn’t sure about, I think.
