I just received the front cover artwork back, boy is it amazing. Special thanks to Melissa Garcia-Devitt for her artwork and Marsha Rollinger for her graphic design.
I'll get it posted as soon as I get a final copy so that everyone can see it. If anyone is interested in using my graphic designer, just send me an email and I'll get you connected.
The conversion process into the CreateSpace format took about four hours yesterday. There might be better ways to do it, but it was suggested that I rid my word file of all formatting and then paste it into the template provided. It was easy, it just took a long time. When I convert it to pdf, I'll report back.
