One of the most important decisions that publishers and authors make about a book is its title and its cover. This decision has been made for my memoir. I used Rosy Cheeks: A Mennonite Childhood as a working title when I proposed the book to Herald Press. But the title has changed.
I want to thank the wonderful friends on my Facebook Writer’s Page who offered wonderful feedback to me on the language of the title, helping me to think about each pro and con. If you have not yet “liked” that page, please do so.
Those same friends also said they wanted an event rather than just seeing the picture of the cover.
So, event it will be.
Friday December 28 at 2 p.m. a few friends will come over to my house. A poster of the cover will be unveiled from under Grandma Hess’ shawl.
We’d love to have you join us! But I know a trip to Virginia is impossible for some, so we will be live streaming the party.
Just submit your email in the box below and you will receive a special email invitation from me on the day of the event. (As a bonus, you will also receive my e-book, “How to Write a Memoir.”)
If you are already on my email list, you will receive an invitation as well.
I’m excited to share what artist Merrill Miller of Herald Press came up with and to get your reactions.
And if you are too busy with holiday activities to join us live, you can also check in on Youtube afterward. I’ll put a link in the comments section after it’s posted.
See you then!
P.S. I shared my most embarrassing photo today. You don’t have any photos like this, do you?
