My book cover was completed yesterday and this was the last step in the process, or so I thought. Yippee, I was all set to publish my new book, however that may not be happening now. I put my trailer up on YouTube (My YouTube Trailer) to generate interest and I started to download my book to Amazon, so I could sell it as an EBook. I did a preview after this and my Table of Contents was a total mess and also the Headers, Footers and Page Numbering that I worked so hard on was all lost. I ended up stopping the process, because I don’t want my name associated with such a mess.
I wrote my book description following a magic formula, which required me to give my readers what they need, and I hoped that this would result in more page views for me. It was not easy to tell my readers what my story is about, since it is a rather long book it covers a lot of topics and it is about many things. It is basically an adventure filled with wonderful stories. The stories are told by my characters and they start out in the beginning and continue all the way to the last page. One person tells a story and then another person tells a different story. The premise or plot of my book concerns my main character Eli, who is a step cousin of Jesus and he was working in Rome when Jesus performed all of His miracles. Eli comes back home and hears all the stories. He gets engaged and married and then he goes back to Rome on his honeymoon.
I guess my new book is on hold for the moment, so you don’t have to dash out and get it. Maybe it is not meant to be an EBook, but I had gotten so many rejections from all the publishers that I contacted that I felt the only choice I had left was self publishing. Self publishing an Ebook basically has no cost, where as self publishing a regular book would require me to pay all the publishing costs. My book is a bit quirky and it is possible that the world is not ready for it yet. All writers learn how to deal with disappointments, but I am happy with my book cover and it is shown below.
