I have plans to publish a number of books. I’ve done the research. I’ve created the covers. I’ve outlined each. I’ve created templates for each in Scrivener.

Currently, however, I provide daycare to my grandchildren and “getting in the zone to write” is just not possible. The light at the end of that tunnel is that in a couple of years, our youngest will start preschool and I will be able to commit to writing.

Designing book covers for the books I plan to write helps me build commitment and focus. Surprisingly, I discovered that is it is possible to design book covers in Adobe Photoshop with a baby asleep on my shoulder.

As an experiment in self-publishing, I created an ebook out of a collection of poems I have written over a lifetime.
