Hard to Believe.....................

I have in my hands what may be the last "proof" of my book "Simple Grace"! I was nervous waiting for this copy to arrive because if this version wasn't close to perfect, I truly believe I would have put the project on hold for another few months (or longer....or forever).

Luckily I don't have to do that. There are still a few tweaks I have to make, but I am ready to put it out there and already have it posted on my website for pre-orders.

One of the ideas floating in my head all along was to package the book with prints or originals. I have mentioned the cost of self publishing before, so by combining "Simple Grace" with some of the actual artwork used to create the book, I can offer a better value.

I shared in "Another Update.....", that I was adding black and white photographs to the book and included a few images in that post. Today I was excited to add "Bloom" to my home page as the "Image of the Month" and offer it along with "Simple Grace" as one of the first "packages".

So my friends............... it looks like this dream is about to become a reality and I am pretty sure that if I hadn't written about this project so publicly, I would have given up a long time ago.

Thank you for all your encouragement, support, helpful hints, links and ideas. I couldn't have done this without you!

I may have a slide show or something featuring the images from the book to share next week..........Stay tuned...................
