Come on in, sit down and have a cuppa. I need your input, your ideas, your help.
I'm working on my plans for the book cover. The book is to be called "So Easy Herbal – ten herbs, how to grow them, use them and save money". As the title suggests, it is about the ten most popular/easiest to buy herbs, gives basic info on planting and caring for them, info on the herbs themselves then lots of recipes for everything from herb vinegar to soaps etc.
I had wanted to have a rustic cloth background like an old tablecloth with coffee stains, a bunch of pressed herbs etc. This isn't sitting well with "the powers that be". I have to agree in a way, does look a tad messy, but what I don't want is your standard photo cover.
Now toying with a compromise, photo looking like it is paper clipped to front with a pressed herb etc.
Any and all ideas are welcome.
Well, yesterday's buzzing about went quite well. Can't say the accountant put on a paper hat and danced round the room though. It was more a case of leaning heavily on the table and fixing me with his gimlet gaze as he asked, ever-so-delicately, if I had any idea at all of what I was doing. hmmmmmm, well no actually.
Thankfully it was a lovely warm sunny day yesterday so the fit flops looked quite normal. I dread the thought of outings in the rain whilst decked out like a beach bunny in the footwear dept – so not happening!
Right, must stop waffling and get back to the book cover, onwards and upwards….
