Getting my book ready for print


I've finally made the decision to get Dalton's Last Stand in print. Going CreateSpace.

I've edited it a few more times, made some changes, and now I'm thinking I need a different image for the cat, who, in the story is a large, fluffy, yellow-orange female with humongous double paws. Which gets her the name Snowshoe Mal. Mal is short for mallet, the device used to whack a puck around an air hockey table. The image I'm using now is of a short haired, orange cat with normal paws. Am considering finding someone on Fiverr if I can't get my friend to do it. She's pretty busy at the moment.

The biggest reason I have decided to change the image is because I want this cat and her humans to be a series--as I've already said it was when I published the book on Amazon and elsewhere. So, I'd like to have an image I can use consistently on each cover, if that makes sense.

And, I'm thinking of changing the title of this book. In my previous post, you can see the cover as it is now. It's Dalton's Last Stand right now. I am wondering if changing it to something like Malley & The Dalton Challenge, or something like that. Just am now feeling that the present title doesn't do a good job of tying Malley in with the story.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open. Appreciate any feedback you can offer.

I have a couple of titles I'm considering. One is MalleyCat and the Dalton Challenge, and the other, similar, is MalleyCat and The Dalton Dilemma. Am leaning toward Dilemma.

I also added a silhouette of a couple of boys facing off, arms folded just beyond the air hockey table. I think it adds a bit of drama to the cover, but my husband doesn't think so. For the moment, the cover stays with the boys!

I'm trying to upload the covers, but for some reason I can't find the upload option. I see the Browse button, but after I choose my files, there's nothing. If anyone is interested in peeking over the covers, they are all posted up on my website AnitaMShaw.com.
