My Name! On Book Covers!

Well, until I'm published, this will have to do.

I picked this meme up a while ago from the Trinity Prep School blog.

Here’s how it works: Go to the "Advanced Book Search" feature on Amazon, type your name into the "Title" field and select "Children's Books" for the subject field. Click "Search" and see what comes up.

I did this for both my first and last names. Here are the two I liked best of the ones that popped up on the first page:




I adore that Acorn book ... in fact, I bought it a few years ago for my niece. The next generation of Acorns!

Want to see your name on a book cover?

The Acorn and the Oak Tree has such a cute cover--that little acorn looks so sweet!

The acorn book definitely looks interesting. Very inviting cover.

Hi, Danette and Jama! Glad to hear it's not just me ... I tend to be biased when it comes Acorns!

Cool. I looked up my name and what I got was the Stephanie Plum mysteries. I'll have to read them and find out what kind of character she is.

LindaBudz said...

Ah, I think you'll like her!

I met Evanovich once at a mystery writers' conference. She writes every day for like 12 hours straight and then "relaxes" the rest of the day by working on her fan newsletter, Web site and blog. Amazing.

OMG! Talk about discipline. If I could only get to the every day part.

LindaBudz said...

Well, she also said she starts every day by throwing up. Perhaps more neurotic than disciplined.

lol - nothing came up for my name - except when I put just my last name an ancestry.com book about the Eldering name came up - which is probably something my husband's father had something to do with since he's been into tracing the family and all.

Either way - that little Acorn book is so delightful looking and so appropriate for you - it should have your name on it - lol - see you all in the postings - E :)

That's cuz your name has such a cool spelling.

Oh well, nothing came up for my name either, but that's OK. Just a few more months to wait, if all goes according to plan. Linda, I posted the cover of Sue's soon to be released book on my blog, so you can check it out. You asked for the title, a while back.
AND, last but not least, that little acorn is totally cute.

A few more months? Cool! And congrats! Very exciting.

I'm usually not much for lizards, but that is one adorable cover ... Sue must be thrilled!
