It took me a year to complete, but I finally finished my first Blurb book. There is no correlation between the length of time to complete and the difficulty of using the free BookSmart software. It’s fairly simple. I just put it down for months at a time and got distracted by other projects, like living and working and traveling and monkey whispering. You know…the usual stuff.
It’s a private book, not for sale. I only had 2 copies made, but thought I’d share a few of the pages with you here. I added some favorite quotes about Lisbon along with writing from our travel journals, but mostly it’s photos.
My sister will be wondering where her copy is when she reads this post. She’ll probably call me and ask me why I haven’t mailed it yet. I’ll probably be outside when she calls. I probably won’t hear the phone ring. She probably wouldn’t believe my story about the pack of wild dogs at the post office last Monday when I went to mail her package. She’ll probably plug her ears when I tell her how they were snarling so loud I couldn’t get out of the car. too dangerous! I probably won’t bother telling her that the exact same dog pack was there again on Friday. They’ll probably have moved on by Monday. I’ll try again.
There are a lot of nice people in the world. Some of them read this blog. Since I mentioned my upcoming trip to Istanbul in late August, I’ve received some cool magazines & ephemera for my travel journal.
I’m doing a little beaming about the recently published book I have a few journal pages
in. This one has interesting matte paper. Very unusual. I dig!
