I went up in my attic a few weeks ago and discovered I’m overrun with back issues of old books. It’s amazing what’s accumulated over the last decade: eight Harlequin Historicals, four Intimate Moments, three Zebra single title romantic suspenses and four anthologies. They take up quite a bit of space when you consider I have between twenty and fifty copies of each book plus a good many foreign editions.
The avid record keeper in me wanted some kind of system that chronicled all the work. I considered framing the covers but that promised to really clutter up the walls. And then a friend, who represents Creative Memories, suggested I scrapbook the covers. Its something I’ve never done before but I’ve got to say one Book containing all the covers really appealed.
So in the last few weeks I’ve pulled all the boxes out of the attic, sorted through all the domestic and foreign editions, donated the excess copies, and arranged all into chronological order. I never realized scrapbooking could be so physical!
I make no claims that my efforts will be any great work of art, but hopefully, I’ll have THE BOOK done by the time I go to the Romantic Times conference at the end of April. So, if you’re at RT, I’ll have THE BOOK at the Saturday signing for all to see.
