I was at an industry conference the other day and a person asked me how long I’ve been in business. I responded “Sixteen years.” This generated a lot of follow-up conversation with questions about how I got started, how the books were created, etc. But the funniest part of the conversation was about getting started on just $5K and how my business partner and I were doing everything we could to save money…even designing our first covers. As I told this story, she laughed and said “I’d like to see those!” Well, here they are….my first book covers. All designed by me 🙂 Go ahead and laugh. I do every time I see them.
