Joss Burnell That Crowing Crone Has Done It

My friend has created a wonderful book.  How do I know it is wonderful? Why because I assisted in my own little way so I have had a preview of what is to come.  Joss doesn’t have a ‘press this’ button so I have endevoured to copy and paste it her announcement of the coming work.  Some of us talk about doing….Joss does it!

Now for the attempted copy..


..I can hardly stand it!  The final editing of my book is done. The cover is ready and I’m just bursting with pride and excitement.  All that’s left is the hours of work to upload it to the self publishing software.  They make it sound so easy but it is time consuming for sure. But that’s okay.


A huge thank you to Chris King over at Bridges Burning for her wondrous editing work.  Chris was oh so patient, oh so gracious, and oh so paid attention to detail.  I am thrilled with the end product.

Also must thank my friend, photographer John T. Fowler for allowing me to use his image on the cover.  Isn’t it just beautiful?

And last, but definitely not least, thank you to my BFF Christine for reading the manuscript all in one go – she who hates to read at the computer!  Christine, your support and love, as you know, mean the world to me.

So, there it is folks.  I can’t wait to hold the first real copy in my hands.

    Hi Chris,

    Wow. When I write a book, I would love, if you could edit it. It will take few years, but will definitely write one.

    A good tip from Kathryn because I asked myself the same question,
    I believe you helped Joss with the book Chris so you must be excited too! Well done!
    I shared Joss’ post on FB by the way.

    I’m happy to have the announcement. However, I’m not sure what the book is about–fibromyalgia? It might be helpful to include a brief description of the content for dumbies like me. Fibro is also a building material–even a tag line might clarify. Or maybe everyone knows “fibro” is an abbreviation of “fibromyalgia”–but I’m only guessing that is the case.

    Thanks for the announcement, Chris. I love cover art!
