Hit publish!

Hi to all of my friends and new followers! You have been dearly missed these past few months. As many of my good friends know, the past year has been full of; baking, cooking, taking photos, testing, re-testing, editing and endless reviewing.  I finally had to say “enough” and am hoping to push the publish button on Monday! I have ordered numerous proofs, changed the cover about 7 times and have had plenty of testing and reviewing by my kids, their fantastic spouses and a special friend of the family.  So here is the final look and I hope to be back on here visiting and having fun on a regular basis as of today!

Thanks for the love and support,

Lynn

      • Since you’re laughing, I’m not sure if you’re joking or not… But the simplest way is: Write up an announcement and description of the book. Do a post asking your followers and friends to share it on blogs and social media. Be sure to include an image of the book cover, and purchase links. Hugs.

        The most simple way is similar to your post here. Write a post with description of the book. Be sure to include the cover image and purchase links. Either before or as part of the post ask your followers and friends to share it on blogs and social media.

    Wow congrats, I have been following your story for a while and even tried a few of your recipes on YouTube, which I loved. But If I am being honest, the cover really needs some work, would love for this to be a hit for your but I’m not sure the cover is eye catching enough. Maybe a graphic designer could help you out, try fiver I am sure there is someone there that can spruce it up for you for a very reasonable price. Anyway good luck and congrats

  37. Wow! 😀 Lynn, congratulations on you book! It is frightening to hit that publish button … the book looks delightful and inviting! A huge achievement and a first for me – I’ve never come across an indie-published cookbook. Wishing you much luck with ‘Mom Plus Nine Cooks’ (terrific title!). xx

      • I am just assuming you are an indie author … a blogger explained it perfectly the other day as: “When you are creative director of your books, from concept to completion and beyond.” If you are published by a mainstream publisher than the phrase seems to be ‘traditionally published’.

        The definitions say creative director of your books, from concept to completion and beyond.
