This blog is all about “true confessions.” Hopefully I will also model how to gracefully admit a mistake and grow stronger because of it!
I’ve been working on my new book for the past two years. It’s done now, however writing it was the easy part. Finding the right title and book cover was the hard part. I struggled with the title for months and months. I had three book title parties, did flip charts, thought about it in my sleep and finally I just picked a title because I needed to move on. I had a cover made by a wonderful graphic artist, Dave Sparks. I put it up on my website and then, it didn’t feel right. I knew it deep down, but didn’t want to admit it because it was done!!
Then Bonnie from Silver Vixens, offered feedback and I listened. Her feedback rang true and it all fell into place. My title was there all the time and I just didn’t see it. I was afraid to tell Dave that the cover was wrong because he worked so hard on it. Good cover but not for my book!
Dave was great and helped me create a new cover. Here it is. I love it and love the title and the book hasn’t changed. It is still really good! It will be out in February but you can buy it now and save some money.

I learned that it is ok to make a mistake and fix it. People understand, and it’s all part of the process of being a small business owner. I teach people about this, but that’s way easier than doing it myself! Please leave comments. I’d love to hear if this has ever happened to you.
