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.

However, being a daycare provider and “getting in the zone to write” are mutually exclusive. In a couple of years, our youngest will start preschool. So hopefully, I commit to the task of 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.
