It's taken a while! Almost 4 years since I wrote the one above and even longer since that original wail about all things techno. I had a habit of trying something, feeling all gung-ho because I was going to CRUNCH it, but it wouldn't be long before I was so frustrated I'd toss it aside and find someone to do it for me.
For someone whose childhood chant was 'I can do it myself', I can't believe it took me so long. Finally, I've learned a few things which seem to be working for me.
- Baby steps. Don't get hung up on the whole project and the fact you want it done in a day. (Actually, I've always preferred things done yesterday. Could be part of the problem. :) Learn one thing at a time and keep tinyurl.com/yc3xznbwusing it.
- There is nothing like a good friend who knows stuff and is willing to share their expertise - patiently! Thanks, Lyn Rasmussen.
So, I'm feeling pretty chuffed as I've finally changed the cover on a book that's been bothering me for ages and I'm pretty happy with it. See 'The Virgin Widow' above.
A few weeks ago I also updated the covers on the 3 contemporaries. Hopefully, they look somewhat more enticing than they did before.
Now I'm working on re-doing the covers for the Crystal Series and getting those 2 books back on my Amazon bookshelf too. I think I've nailed 'Crystal Warrior' with some help from Lyn.
And of course, I've just made a heap more work for myself. There will need to be changes made to my website, my FB page and probably a few other things I haven't thought of yet!
At least boredom won't be a problem!
And then, of course, this jolly thing won't download tidily when I publish it!
Yeah, I hear you. Just keeping me humble!
