Please let me know who would like to reserve a copy of this book for the Signed, Limited-Edition Pre-launch. I will be getting back with everyone after August 7th with the particulars.
I am so thankful and overwhelmed by the helpful comments and suggestions I received on my blog, facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and emails regarding the cover for my book, “Annie’s Story: Blessed With A Gift.” This has been a difficult task for me because in many ways, I am Annie. Therefore, I’m way too close to be objective.
This is a version of the very first cover and a dozen tries later I have come back to it because it shows what Annie sees and how her mind works.
From the FOREWORD:
“… Annie was mentally slow, stunted in growth, and lacking in social and emotional development… Annie couldn’t read or write, … but … was an incredible savant, reciting songs, rhymes, recipes, and medicinal incantations… She was a natural [telepathic and white light] healer, blessed with a special gift from the Spiritual Universe.”
Coming in early 2016, I will share precious Annie with all of you.

The cover is always the last thing I do before publishing, and I change the color and fonts and picture “a gazillion” times to quote my main character, 17-year old Delilah. Any comments would be appreciated.
It should be live on amazon.com tomorrow…I hope, unless I tear the cover apart and start again.

In my effort to get the right information to the right people…writers, of course…my updated site is growing. I just added an “Editorial Services” Page for writers of any genre to improve their writing, get the services they need to take their manuscripts/business documents to the next level: writing, rewriting, ghost writing, proofreading, formatting, design, and publishing.
Or, if you’re stuck, let me know. Questions are free, and I offer a free writing critique of your first chapter, a chapter you’re having trouble with–writing in circles, just doesn’t sound right, or you’re caught between where you are and where you want to go–and copy for business proposals, grants, online or print newsletters, and promotional material.
Prices are always user-friendly and based upon your budget. I negotiate each job separately. I like WIN-WIN business agreements.
Check out my new Editorial page, and read “Who Am I?”, an updated, more complete Bio in less words–how novel!–which replaced the previous ABOUT page. Please send me some feedback on what you like and what I should fix.
Another new page will be appearing soon… this week, perhaps? A section dedicated to all the book reviews I’ve done and will do since I strive to review one book at week. I believe it’s important to support each other in this crazy, ever-changing industry to which we have dedicated our lives.
Keep Writing; Keep Learning; Keep growing!

A short note from the CEO of Clasid Consultants Publishing, Inc., Deborah A. Bowman:
I am an author, writer/editor, proofreader, book reviewer, cover/graphics designer, and publisher with 20+ years of experience. I really like to help new writers start off with a quality book. It’s how you get noticed and have your writing taken seriously.
I’m willing to coach and to teach, and questions are free. I learned to write, format, and layout books start-to-finish the old fashioned way, when cut-and-paste was done with an Xacto knife, scissors, light-table, and adhesive. The quality of these books was incredible, but it took as long as a year or more to crop, scale, strip-in, correct, and proofread one letter at a time.
I have taken my skills and applied them to the current technology. There are pros and cons to both, but I believe the quality of yester-year can be achieved with the rapidity of technology today. Do a search for writing, editing, proofreading, and tricks-of-the-trade for information I have already shared on my blog, bowmanauthor.com.
My company is www.clasidconsultantspublishing.com The website is up and running, but we’re constantly adding new consultants and referral partners. Notify us if you want to be included in our list of experts and specialists. Let me help you be the best that you can be at your chosen craft! My rates are based on your needs and budget. I’ll read and critique your first chapter for free!
