One day, while looking at my oh-so-cute hot pink kindle cover, I realized it was boring. Not the color itself, just the unending surface of it. I didn’t want to buy another, mainly because I knew I’d eventually feel the same. I wanted something unique. Something fun. But something that didn’t cost money or require thread or glue. I also wanted something that reflected me as both a reader and a writer.
Impossible, I thought. Until a sparkling new idea popped into my brain. What if I asked some of my favorite authors to scrawl their names across the space in black sharpie? A whole host of autographs on the cover of my ebooks, something to keep for ever and always. What fun!
So I traipsed off to the ACFW Conference with sharpie and cover in hand. Here is the result:
Isn’t that cool? And I still have plenty of blank spaces to fill! In case you are curious, here is a list of the authors I have so far: Regina Jennings, Elizabeth Camden, Randy Ingermanson, Brandilyn Collins, Cara Putman, Jennifer AlLee, Deb Raney, Susan Meissner, Dan Walsh, Carla Stewart, Melanie Dickerson, Karen Witemeyer, Becky Wade, Lisa Wingate, Davis Bunn, Mesu Andews, and Cathy Gohlke.
I’m hoping that besides being a cool souvenir of meeting an author, my cover will spark conversations and promote Christian fiction when I’m reading it in public. So what do you think? Good idea or goofy one?

oh yes. Very cool. Drat. My cover is dark purple.
Hm. Maybe you could find a silver or a white sharpie, Deb. There has to be a way!
Very cute! A great idea. And I am still smiling over the “no thread or glue” !
Ha! I see those cute ones on Pinterest, but I’m not a crafty girl! 🙂

Love this idea!
And so wish we lived closer so we could go to Les Mis together!
I know, Wendy! Wouldn’t that be so fun? I love when my friends love Les Mis as much as I do! 🙂
Posted on I’m willing to supensd a lot of disbelief for this show, but I actually had issue with the real science last night.The freezing of the spine took place WAY too long post-trauma to have been that effective, especially considering the issues they went through during the procedure.The Buffalo Bills player was saved from paralysis only because the medical personnel began the process almost immediately.
Hm. Sorry, but I’m confused, Molnar. What are you referring to?
Love it. If I ever get a kindle, I’m so doing this.
It’s such fun to look at and remember. 🙂
