I Published A Book, Kinda

I’m officially a published author. Kinda. I did write a book and it was published and sold. Of course, it was sold to me. Still…

Now that Christmas is over, I can finally tell you about my secret gift I made my wife for Christmas. I wrote her a book on software called Blurb Booksmart and had it printed at blurb.com. The above photo is the cover of the book I created.

The book was about 22 pages long, and alternated full pages of a photograph with text on the opposite site. The book starts with “There once was a Mommy, who married a Maddy, and Along came a bundle of joy.”

Here are some screen grabs of the book. The nice thing about creating the book is you can preview it online.

There’s much more to the book, but I thought I’d just post this as a bit of a sample. I was pretty proud of the results, to tell you the truth. I usually don’t get very creative with Christmas gifts, but I was happy I did this time.

Maybe some day I’ll even be published for real. Nah.
