The next step was the book cover. I’d been wondering how that would work, but Lulu has several basic covers planned out and ready for use. I chose style, color, fonts and size, added text, changed my mind about pictures, kept Lulu’s label on the back… I’m still not sure what happens if I really publish and need a bar-code; something in the small print says “it” doesn’t apply to one-piece covers, but I’m sure it’ll work it out. Meanwhile, I now had a “cover” file, and my dream was taking shape. Maybe I’d pluck up courage and “Publish” soon.
