A few years ago, I got inspired to put my Mom’s writing into a book for her. I used the print-on-demand site Blurb for this.
It turned out great and she loved having a book with her name on the cover. Actually “loved it” is rather tame. She was ecstatic.
If you want to make your mom really really happy, start today putting together a book for her. It can be photos from her childhood, a collection of family memories, or so many other topics. It may not be done by Mother’s Day, but start it and see what you can accomplish.
The BookSmart software that you download for free from Blurb is really great to use. Here’s my page telling how to self-publish a book using Blurb.
