An extra post this week as I wanted to share with you that Walking over Eggshells, my first book and biography, has been chosen as the Book of the Week by BookWorks. Here is the link to their nice colourful page.    If you do the control, click thing it will come up or it may work by just clicking on it.

As always technology has defeated me, as I wanted to cut and paste part of their page to put here, but of course it didn’t work did it.

However the nice sticker thing does, so you can look at that.

And while I’m at it, I’ll do the whole boasting thing and put in the 5 star badge from Reader’s Favorite as well.


I am very thrilled they have chosen my book, but it is a teeny, weeny bit embarrassing, since we are in the process of re-vamping the whole manuscript. Not that the story will change of course, but it’s going to have a nice new cover, and DH has decided he is going to reformat the pages and change the white pages to cream.

I did the original cover needless to say and at the time I was quite pleased with it as I thought it showed a little girl trying to run away from home. After several people asked me why I’d put a coat hanging on the back of a door, I began to have serious doubts about it. I’ve been searching for something new for a long time and here it is.

It’s amazing how much we’ve both learned this last (almost) three years about publishing and presentation and so hopefully in a about a week it will be on the internet with a brand new coat and if you buy paperbacks, in a nicer font and paper colour. Right at this minute DH is struggling to change the page numbers from the top to the bottom, (please don’t ask me why, he’s got a bee on his bonnet about it) so I’m typing very quietly. I do not like to disturb him when he’s being creative. I understand it’s far more important to be quiet and peaceful while formatting a mss than is necessary when it’s only the writing part.

Guess I better put in the link to the book?

Will be back with an update soon and have a great week.

  1. The original cover was pretty awful as the resolution of the pic was not good so it appeared 3 times on the cover. then I had it enhanced so it was large enough and now we’ve changed it altogether. Slowly learning so much 🙂 I’ve had every book professionally edited now, one by one, but there is still the odd gripe from the purists. But then I’ve found some books from the big publishing houses which are not perfect. By book 20 i should have it all to hand!

  2. I got (understood) your old cover & liked it! It reminded me of plenty of kids’ coats I’d seen in my youth. The new one may appeal to a broader base. I’d read ‘Amie’ previously & knew what a fantastic writer you are. ‘Walking on Eggshells’ was hard to put down! You may want to check out the old book, ‘Irregular People’. I read it back in the 1970s (still available today) & it came to mind when I was about half way through your fascinating memoir. Congrats again on all of your books!
