...Diplomacy from Mom...
Whether they're family, friends, colleagues or fellow RWA authors, all who know me will agree the words "technologically gifted" wouldn't be used in my author's bio. I don't know a widget from a gadget. Therefore, whenever I have a computer question, I turn to my RWA chapter mate, award-winning author,Vonnie Davis. Earlier in the week, I emailed Vonnie for instructions on how to get the Magic Moment cover with Amazon link on my blog. Before you could say Tumbleweed Letters (my favorite Vonnie Davis' read), I had Vonnie's instructions.
While I followed step by step, once completed, I thought the image was overwhelming. I couldn't get the picture to look petite and cute like the images on the other blog sites I visit. Whether my problem was me, my computer, or the blog, I tried several different tactics and still couldn't get the image smaller.
Since no one gives advice or an opinion like a "mom," I trekked over to my mother's house. After showing her the blog site and explaining my dilemma, I concluded with, "I don't know, Mom. What do you think? Do you think that book cover is too big? Does it look obnoxious?"
My mother stared quietly, studied the screen then said with pride, "I can never get enough of looking at that book cover. It's beautiful."
Delighted by her flattering remark, and the chocolate pudding cake she put in front on of me, I didn't realize until I was on my way home that Mom never did answer my questions.
If you click on the Magic Moment image, it'll take you to the Amazon site...with a click for my author's page!
Thanks, Vonnie (and, Mom)!
