When I asked on Monday how many of you were in the iBookstore, only one person said yes - L. Diane Wolfe. Over twenty of you said you would be one day.
So, I created a surprise for those of you who want your book in the iBookstore:
(And I broke it down from this morning's post - couldn't read the titles!)
I didn't have as much time to work on it as I'd hoped, so forgive the simple covers. (And I hope you can read your book cover!) But I grabbed the samples of Diane's books, found the covers of those of you who have books but not in the iBookstore, and then created covers for those of you who will have books one day!
Hope everyone likes it. May it inspire you!
Now on to awards that a few lovely ladies were nice enough to pass along...
Summer at And This Time Concentrate! gave me the Journey Award! We are all on a journey together.
Passing this award to Ellie at Ella’s Edge who is working hard on her dream.
Christine at Christine’s Journey gave me the Blogger Buddy Award!
Passing this award to Kierah Jane Reilly because she’s a buddy, too!
And Mel at Writings, Musings, and Other Such Nonsense gave me the Awesomesauce Award!
That’s twice now. I feel special. Or rather, awesome!
HOW cool! You are so clever, Alex! I love the creativity behind your iBookstore, and the support for your blogger/writer friends it represents. You are awesome!
Congrats on the awards too!
Oh my god dude, that is so nice and you are so thoughtful. What a fun thing to see just after getting to work this morning!
You're right too, we will all be there one day as long as we never give up.
Today's guest blogger is THE Elana Johnson!
Congratulations on your awards well deserved. I got a book but not on show on my blog if I put it on would it be in ipad?
Enjoy your day,
Yvonne, I looked for your book on your blog and since I don't know your last name, I couldn't search anywhere else for it. Sorry I couldn't get the actual cover up for you!
Matthew, glad you like it! I thought it'd be encouraging.
Nicole, I hope you could read the tiny print on your book. I should've made it bigger.
I'm curious how this word 'awesomesauce' became so common on the blogosphere? Nice job on the bookshelf!
What a great and wonderful thing for you to do. Congrats on your awards!
Awwww dude! That is awesome sauce-age, right there. I give thee a round of applause for your brilliance!
That was freakin' Epic, dude!
ah, what a charmer, this was very nice from you, Alex, I'm sure those writers among your friends will be thrilled to see this :)
Congrats on the awards as well :)
That is awesome!! What a cool thing to do, Alex. I loved seeing my book on that shelf. Now if only my pub can figure out what they're doing with Smashwords.... The latest I heard was there were fears about formatting issues? Have you noticed any weird formatting from Smashwords?
This made my day. Thanks for including me on the shelf, face out. I could hope for no better!
Ha! You're so clever
Nice job, man! That's so cool! :-)
That's a really cool thing to do, Alex. You are an awesome blogging/writing friend.
Ted, I've no idea how sauce was included!
Thanks Will and Dez.
Glad you liked it, Karen. And no idea on Smashwords. My publisher does all that stuff.
Alex, you just made my day! I LOVE my cover and you've inspired me to keep chugging to make sure there is one sometime. Back to writing now, so that cover dream comes true!
Wow, you found all of my books! Thanks, Alex. And I hope everyone appreciates what you did - that was really nice.
That's so awesome - you have my cover right there! Yay! Thank you so much - this has made me smile and drink more wine!
Thank you, thank you!
That was really unique and creative. It must have taken a lot of time to do that.
Tossing It Out
Awesome!! I love the close ups. And yes you deserve all these awards! Thanks for going to so much work to support all of us. You rock!
Thank you so much. It was cool to see my book on that shelf. You are awesome.
Love your iBookstore, what a great idea! Congrats to you for the awards, and to the new winners. Have a great weekend!
Thanks Alex. This is really cool. And I'm inspired. I'll get those questions over to you this weekend. Have a great holiday.
Everyone is welcome! And I'll be watching for the questions, Stephen. Thanks again.
so awesome! thank you!! :)
Congrats on more awards :)
This was great, Alex! How nice of you to make best sellers of your friends! Hopefully when I have a real book you'll do the same for me... single-handedly promoting me to the top of the stack! teehee
Congrats on the awards! (you and everyone you passed them to!)
Congrats on even more awards. Don't use all your awesomesauce in one place no y'hear?
That was a brilliant gesture putting up books for all those people, I wish all of them (and you) the best in achieving your endeavors!
Lots of work here. Congrats on your awards.
Very creative, innovative and clever, Alex! Pretty cool seeing my memoir in the store ... love it. :)
Hart, I will do the same for you!
Thanks, Bryan. Just seemed sad that only one of my author/writer friends had books in the store so I decided to correct that situation - to the best of my abilities!
Glad you like it, Marvin!
that is so incredibly sweet!
i love the thought!
So COOL!! Thank you! This is the best present I've got this week :) Thanks again!
Alex, that is so sweet! I love my cover; It suits me! You are very clever!!! I am thrilled to accept my award! You are so gracious to
make everyone's day! I will post about you and the award tomorrow!
I had to chaperon 12 teenagers, tonight. A friend and I took them out to dinner, before their Middle School Prom! A great group...brings
back a lot of fond memories~
Awesomesauce award? I want that one. Coolest named award ever.
Congrats on the awards Alex. I like the Awesomesauce award name as well.
You are a true blog buddy. Awesome.
You're welcome, Jemi.
You're welcome, Ellie. I hope everyone's covers are okay. And twelve teenagers? You are one brave woman.
Cheeseboy, how about an anwesome cheesesauce award?
Thanks every one!
Hmmmm... I feel bad, I could not see mine...:) But I could still smile! Just kidding, but would be glad if I have one na...:)
I was just on short break, say a week but am back now...:)
Inspiring book covers, I thought at first, Yvonne and Shannon, who are my blog buddies have a published book selling like hot cakes hence this post!
Sorry, Amity! I just went through the list of comments on my Monday post and made covers for those people. I didn't leave you out on purpose.
Well, dang, Alex, I don't even have a print copy of Computer Gaming. My husband has an iPad. I'm going to go download it! Woo-woo. I'm in the iBookstore.
Straight From Hel
Thank you Alex for my book. I love the cover, reminds me of the beach, even though it's the desert. And I'm glad you made them a little bigger. I couldn't find it the first time I looked.
Alex, that was sweet of you to recreate the covers for those of us not yet in the iBookstore. Some day it will be cool to see the real one up there.
Piedmont and Helen, you're welcome! And I hadn't counted on the image being so small, which is why I went back and added larger sections.
Aw, that's great. I'm sure everyone likes seeing their books on the shelves!
