I am so pleased to unveil the cover for my new book, Liberating Lomie: Memoir of an Amish Childhood. Much gratitude goes to Pam Johnson of TechPro Publications for her patience and craft as the concept for the cover kept evolving and changing. Just when I thought it was about done, but I knew something was missing, David came up with the idea of adding a butterfly to the cover. I found the butterfly image on Unsplash.com, courtesy of Sian Cooper, and Pam extracted the butterfly from the background and perched it on my childhood name.
I’m almost done with designing the content of the book. I have assigned the ISBN number to the book, along with the barcode. Blurbs for the back of the book are coming in, and April Sachs is proofreading the book as I write this.
It won’t be long now before you will be able to order the print book or the ebook. My aim is to make it available by June 1. Stay tuned.
A word about blog email notifications. I know there is still progress to be made in delivering these to your email inboxes. I’ve moved, I’ve not been blogging regularly, and my list was not clean when I started this whole process.

I’d love to know your thoughts about the cover. And I’ll be back soon with more news.
