Have Bags, Will Travel #Book #Cover Reveal


After a long, busy summer dealing with many setbacks while trying to work on the publication of my newest short stories book of travel memoirs, I’m happy to announce that it will be published by month’s end.


This book went through various changes and delays through these past months due to some unforeseen life curveballs thrown at me, and I’d like two thank a few people for their assistance.

I say thanks to my editor Talia Leduc, and cover designer Yvonne Less for putting up with my many delays I caused from not staying within promised timelines during the editing process and the designing of my cover input. I am blessed to have developed a great rapport with these people who help make my books happen, along with my print book designer and ebook formatter. I also want to give a shout out to two of my gal pal author friends Deborah Bowman and Deborah Jay for their input and feedback, and for taking the time to read my manuscript, and to comment back their opinions on my dilemmas, and book cover. Ironically, we are the three redhead Deborah authors.

Have Bags, Will Travel is a reminiscing of short stories about some of the places I’ve traveled to, my obsessive need to travel with too much luggage, and my ongoing concern with clearing customs on my return trips home because of my never-ending love affair with shoes.  It’s a light-hearted read, sure to bring a smile or two, and most definitely, it will have some relating to, if not, learning from some of my encounters.

    1. Sally you just rock. You’re like a news reporter, always on the ball! Thanks so much for being such a good author friend! xo ❤ I'll be in touch later next week for the Fanfare submission. xo


  1. I’m loving the cover of your new book, Debby. Very eye-catching and certainly a book I would pick up off the shelve. If you are planning a blog tour with the new book then please include my blog.



  2. Yay, this is super exciting. I saw the cover on facebook – so glad I now know when its going live – congrats 😀 😀 😀 😀 like Sue said – guest posting…. I am revamping my friday interview shortly if you fancy it…


    1. Thanks Sach, I’m stoked! I’m just working on publication (frantically) it’s a crazy process sending files to graphic artist, book printer and formatter, back and forth correcting imperfections with time zones in between lol. My artist lives in Australia, my printer in the U.K. and my formatter in the U.S. Lol, so much fun sending back and forth and waiting for replies. I’m hoping to get the book live by week’s end, and then of course updating all my social media bios and pages (look what you have to look forward to!) And by the following week I should be able to make some posting plans with some of you wonderful people who have invited me over. xo 🙂
