Drumroll please…

When I decided to self-publish my debut novel, In the Fool’s Footsteps, I challenged myself to spend as little money as possible on the venture. That’s partly because I have limited funds and partly because I love a challenge. I have publishing work experience and thus the skills to design and format the digital and hard copy versions. I also expect that my marketing and event planning work experience will come in handy.

Although I have an eye for and some training in page layout, I am smart enough to recognize my own limits. That’s why the cover art is the one area I decided to make a financial investment. I commissioned Matthew Marigold to photograph and design my cover. I just got the first mock-up yesterday and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

In the Fool’s Footsteps will be available for purchase on Amazon on June 1, 2012.

    So I obviously know that you are doing this, but until I scrolled down that picture and saw your name in huge letters, it never really hit me that you truly are doing this. WOW!!! I can only imagine how you are feeling.
    How very cool to be fulfilling such a dream of yours!!!!
