I Want You Back!


I've had a headache all day.


A short while ago I realized I haven't had any coffee all day, and I'm sure that's the source of my headache. I'm probably hooked on the stuff. But now as I write a cup of Starbucks is by my side. With any luck the headache will be gone by the time I'm done.


I've been working on I Want You Back exclusively today--no Christmas shopping, no malls--and I'm nearly done. I've been exploring delivery formats, and now think I'm just going to convert the chapters to a down loadable pdf. Tatiana had suggested using My ebook. It's free ebook service where authors (published and unpublished) can share their books with the public. Some of the book covers are stunning, which is one reason we thought of using them. Click here: Myebook - get it out there! You can have flash on your book cover, and we thought it would be neat to have our hand holding couple in a shroud of mysterious, rising smoke.


But I didn't like all the hoops my readers would have to jump through to subscribe (since they've already subscribed to my website). I also felt when I hit the button to enlarge the page that I could never get it to the right size. It was either too big or too small. So, I'm still looking around, but for now I'm thinking pdf. If anyone has any better ideas please let me know.


The photo above is a progress shot of Tatiana's painting for the book cover. Yes, she's actually doing a painting for each illustration. I know she'd love to hear your comments on her work. Leave them here.
My head is still hurting.
