How now brown cow? The photos are not plastered down. They are strategically & creatively & lovingly placed each in its ground town. How?
O my Father—O Father of mine? You know that I intended to do this cover as a simple cover as per my baby daughter’s suggestion. Well? I worked on the only photo I thought to be suitable for the book content.
The picture was taken some 54 years ago. Cameras at that time were not as common and of good quality as they are now. Thus the picture is only a blurry picture and memory of my trip back to my country to introduce my husband & baby.
But the picture is just right for the content of the book because that was the very beginning of a life that took many turns in the span of those 54 years. That life is what the book is all about.
Anyhow? It is not that I do not appreciate all the suggestion I get to help me to succeed in the sale of the book from professionals as well as from my own ‘beautiful smart’ child and friends. It is not that I am dead set in failing in my venture to sell the book. And mainly, the book it is what it is as per the description. The cover? The title?
I do not want to attract readers by giving them only something that is considered to be what they like to hear in order to even think of reading my book or much less of buying it.
O my Father—O Father of mine? How can I convey to Your people what You want to convey not what I get in my mind from so many diverse ideas coming to me from all directions? You know that I am a human being among the rest of human beings inhabiting this world.
