Announcing New Book

Delighted to announce my new children’s book, A Gift at the Door.

Holding my book, hot off the presses, are the two models: my grandchild, Evy and my husband, Robert. Next week I’ll explain how I did the illustrations. Until then, I’m pleased as punch to share my book.

Radio show CC

I announced this week about a radio show I was on talking about my new book, “Double Take.”

Feedback:

  1. Good show, clear audio
  2. How can Deaf and HH people access the same information???

For #2, warning….sharp learning curve for me. I leaned how to download a mp3 on YouTube and then used 1/2 auto captioning and 1/2 editing. So, -Fingers Crossed!!! Here we go!

Click on the link Radio Show, transcription, and you should see a one picture youtube video with rolling captions. I notice I do say “hello” to myself (oops) but most is okay. I made sure I showed when Dave spoke (DD) and when I responded (BB)

Enjoy!!

Business Cards…

(Or how I got my techno-groove on)

I have an opportunity to meet with someone about my new young adult mystery, Double Take. While thinking about what I would say, it suddenly occurred to me that I didn’t have a business card. Yikes.

So I started designing one. While looking up ideas of what others had done, I ran across a cool QR code creator called QR Code Monkey

I designed the front of the card to match my more playful side and the back to satisfy that part of me that loves to geek out. With a regular QR reader app, you can hover over the left side and *bing* you are transported to my Amazon author page. Hover over the right side, *bing* you’re looking at our Pyrofuse website.

A good Epson printer, medium weight linen paper, and a good cutter did the rest. I now have my first author business cards.

Let me know what you think or if you have suggestions. Would appreciate the feedback.

What have you been up to?

Self and book “Double Take”

I’ve taken quite a break from my blog…

Not sorry…

I’ve been making one of my dreams come true.  I wrote a book; a real gosh-darn YA mystery.   It’s about a these two fresh and eager first year students at a local community college.  They’re twins! One is Deaf and the other one is hearing.  There’s a event at the college and these two step up to solve the mystery surrounding the event (no spoilers here).

Some “behind the book” information:  Writing was a lot of fun and very challenging.  However, there was a steep learning curve when it came to cover design and learning how to format a book so I could release the paperback and ebook at the same time.

My author page links to both styles of books.  A neat kindle feature, there is a “look inside” feature for the electronic book if you want to read the first few pages before buying.  Bobbi Bowman Author Page
