author photo attempt

October 17, 2020

I have spent much of this past week learning new things. 

In trying to figure out how to self-publish this book (that I hope someone beyond my mother reads), I have been wading into all sorts of areas that I knew nothing about.  How do you know if the title of your book is right?  What should the book description say?  What makes a good author bio?  Which author photo presents the image of me that makes sense? How do you test these things? 

Turns out there is a lot I don’t know. 

But happily, it also turns out there are a lot of helpful resources around.  I’ve read books on the process, talked to published authors, watched webinars, read blog posts, and viewed Youtube videos. 

Learning is good… and is my silver lining for today.   

Beauty of the Day

started in 2015 when Jill decided to concentrate on the “beauty” around her every day.  If the garden needs to be weeded, there is still individual beauty in a specific flower.  If the weather is so cold that it hurts to breathe, the snow glistens all the more brightly.  

It’s become a habit–and led to tons of gorgeous photos.  She shares them here “just for fun”.
