So here it is at last – the draft cover for my Simply Elfje book, I hope you like it. It is not fully finalised yet and I may play with the colour scheme a bit – my aim is to reflect the theme of the blog and now I see it here this is a bit too blue at the top!
The book itself is also progressing well and will soon be somewhere near ready to submit for printing. As I mentioned before, this is a whole new learning process as I have never used CreateSpace before. There have been a few glitches along the way but I am getting to grips with it now so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly from here on. It won’t be long now!
I just thought I would drop in to let you know how the Simply Elfje book is coming along. The good news if that it is almost ready!
I now have all the permissions I need from the guest contributors and will soon be confirming with them which of their Elfje I have included. All that is needed then is to proof read the whole thing and upload it to Createspace. As this is the first time I have produced a book in this way it is something of a learning process but I am hoping it will all go smoothly.
The book cover design is also nearly ready, though I have yet to do the final complete version, but I hope to be able to share this with you towards the end of next week so watch this space!

Hello again. I’m back here briefly to tell you about my new project. I am in the process of preparing a book of Elfje poems. This will be both print and e-book and will contain many of my Elfje that have appeared on this blog. There will also be an updated version of the article on how to write Elfje and it is my hope that the book will continue to further awareness of this lovely little form.
There have been so many Elfje on this blog over the years and I can’t possibly include them all; this is why I have chosen to focus on my own ones. However it is my intention to include a selection of Elfje from the contributors to this blog and I have been contacting these people for their permission to print. Unfortunately I no longer have the contact details for some of you. If you have not heard from me in the last week or so and have contributed to this blog in the past please check your Facebook messages as I have used this medium to reach as many of you as I can. Alternatively please leave a comment alerting me to your contact details and I will get back to you, or you can reach me via my website below.
I will post more information about the book as it nears publication both here and on my other regular blog at ‘By the Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree’ and also on my website at http://www.silverburnpublishing.co.uk where you will find details of my other books, including my new illustrated children’s story book ‘The Thirsty Flowers’.
