Dressing Your Book has just found out that one of our authors is going to be featured on an Investigation Discovery show. Author Yvonne Mason wrote a book called Silent Scream. It is a true crime book about Gerard Schaefer a serial killer in the Martin County area in Florida. She will be interviewed and featured on the show as an expert on Gerard Schaefer. This just goes to show that getting your book published can pay off in big ways. Look for more details to be posted as they become available. Be sure to get a copy of her book available in print and on Kindle and Nook to read before the show airs so you know all about the story.
Okay everyone; I have some interesting news for you all. You want to have your books on the shelf in bricks and mortar stores. Well, Dressing Your Book is working on a way to make that happen for you. The one thing it would require is that all books be published through Dressing Your Book and printed through Lightening Source. This is not a big deal in any case. The more authors and books I can get the cheaper it will be for all of you to avail yourself of this new and creative service Dressing Your Book will be offering by the first of the year. There will be an annual fee for me to advertise your books through Ingram distributions catalog so that your books will be in bricks and mortar stores. Something totally new for independent authors. I am trying to take you all to a place you have never been before. Please drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you are interested in joining this great new adventure. You can also post a comment on here as well and I will get them all and get you all ready for a great new year.
This is the cover I am considering for a book I am working on for a client. What does everyone think?

Bad things are happening in Gillian Sandler’s life. Just after her ninth birthday her parents announce that they are getting divorced. If that wasn’t enough, her dad is leaving for a younger woman named Amber whom he intends to marry. Even worse, Gilly, the star goalie for the school soccer team, knows three Ambers, all on the team and in her fourth-grade class. Embarrassed and furious, Gilly conspires to get rid of Amber, her future stepmother, and enlists the help of her older brother, Marcus. Whatever she tries seems to backfire, until one terrifying night, when she learns something important about Amber. Then there’s the Amber Club at school. If she can become a member, will they join the conspiracy?
