A writer inspired by nature and human nature

Here I am reading, editing & rewriting one more time…

Dear Readers,

The manuscript for my debut novel (current Work-in-Progress title: DOG BONE SOUP, A Boomer’s Journey…) is almost ready to go to the pros (professional editors). I feel like I’m making progress. Wanted to share my latest cover design with you.

I would love to get your thoughts on the cover design and on the back cover blurb. Simply click on the image to enlarge.

The more 'eyes' the better. Thanks so much Marilyn and Dale for heads-up on changes. You're awesome! ~ Bette

  1. Hi. How exciting! Good luck with your debut novel. As to the cover. My thoughts: A bigger central picture would be fab, and maybe a lighter colour of red, so that the rocks in the background could be more visible? Just a thought, hope it helps. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Congratulations Bette.


  3. Very exciting – congratulations.


  4. Best wishes with your new book. Looking forward to reading it.

    Can you make your own photo a little bigger? It makes you look like your trying to distance yourself from the book. The photo itself is fine, show yourself to the world.


    • Thanks for your input, Laurie. I’ve used CreateSpace Cover Creator to design the cover and the sizes are restricted, but I’ll give it some thought and see if I can come up with an alternative. Appreciate your visit, read an comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I thought that might be a problem Bette. Congratulations on your book. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Looking great! I wish you the best of luck with your new book. Hugs, Natalie ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comment. It’s wonderful to have such great friends to check things over and out. Marilyn and Dale found a couple things that needed changing & I got them done! Blessings always, Bette ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. It looks good, Bette. Yes to delete the ellipses and the blurb has Dogbone as one word but the title is two words. That’s all I got. I suck at covers, lol.


  8. Whoopee congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚ You must be getting really excited!! I am and it isn’t even my book ๐Ÿ˜€


  9. It looks great, just lose the ellipses after “A Boomer’s Journey.” You don’t need it and it takes up eye room ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. Plot sounds great and cover looks fab, Bette.
    Your first novel!
    I am so excited for you. Wow!
    This must be a thrilling time.
    Congrats and wishing you all good things.
