I Can See Clearly Now, Oh, Here's My Book Cover

The "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" book cover is here and clear!

THANKS to those of you who offered assistance to me regarding converting the PDF to a format to enable me to post my book cover. One of my readers so graciously changed it to a GIF file for me so I could post this clear and pristine picture of the front cover of "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb." It is just beautiful and pretty soon I'll be holding the first copy of this book in my hands. I think I'll cry that day! LOL! Again, the wait is almost over and soon you will have the opportunity to get the book for yourself. You won't be disappointed, I promise!

    Great cover, Jimmy! It attracts attention right away! Colorful!
    Is that a Looney Tunes tie you're wearing? They're my favorite all-time cartoon characters!
    Looking forward!

    Very observant, Diet King! Actually I got the idea to wear the exact same tie in my AFTER photo that I was wearing in the BEFORE photo. Call it my common link between the photos. It will provide me with another story to tell on my book tour. Hope you can join me along the way, too! :-)

    THANKS, Linda for your comments. It's been a long time coming and it's almost here. WOO HOO!

    Hi Jimmy, you just emailed me about your new book's availability.

    I am thrilled to see the cover! I hope you get lots of promotion and it sells.

    One thing that bothers me is that Dana Carpender wrote to her subscribers that Barnes and Nobles and Borders will no longer carry new books with the words "low carb" in the title. This is very alarming, and I wonder about the validity of it. The topic came about because her new book is titled Making Every Calorie Count: Low Calorie, Sugar Free Cooking; obviously no mention of low carb in the title. This concerned some of her previous cookbook owners.

    This does not sound good for the low carb community, and I am concerned. What do you think?? I know low carb AIN'T DEAD!!

    Hey LowCarberGal,

    THANKS for your comments! You are the second person this week to tell me about Dana Carpender's woes with getting her books with the words "Low-Carb" on them into Barnes & Noble and Borders. This is indeed very disappointing and it must be a corporate decision regarding national distribution of books into these chains.

    But that still shouldn't deter people who want to write about low-carb to include "low-carb" in their title if they so choose. My local B&N will be carrying my book and I'm urging my blog readers to begin sending e-mails to the corporate headquarters of B&N as well as Borders, Pic-A-Book, and any other major book seller you can think of.

    Trust me, if they see the interest is there where they can make some money, they'll quickly relax their so-called "no low-carb" policy lickety split!

    I feel bad for Dana, but she's done quite well for herself as an author. I admire her success and hope to follow in her footsteps with my own book and possibly subsequent books.

    While you and I know low-carb "ain't dead" (you must be a Southern girl!), we have to keep livin' la vida low-carb as an example for others to see this way of eating will be around for a very long time.

    THANKS again for your comments!
