Common Core Money: Financial Literacy for Educators & Other Professionals--The Book!

This is not an April fools joke.  The book is finally here!  I checked my email this morning and found that my book cover designer, Donna Tlachac, Digital Arts and Media Teacher, had mailed.  She had the final draft image for me.  This is it:

I love that the elder version of the young man on the bottom left corner is grabbing the "O" in the word, "Core."    The idea to add the crossword puzzle and populate the rows and columns with words found inside the book, was also clever.  I like how she does a strike through the word, "Debt."  I think we all wish we could do this to our own debt statement, right?  There is layering as well on the left, as if the cover was a single page of a larger volume.  There is much to love about the cover of my book, and I could not be more pleased with the end product.  For you home publishers out there, take note, please have a professional do your book covers.  People like to say, "Don't judge a book by its cover."  Don't listen to these people.  Your book won't sell if you have a crappy cover.  Bottom line.  It won't matter what's inside, if you can't get a sale because people are put-off by a book's cover.

The book should be live tonight, 4/1/2014, on Amazon.  Available for Kindle/Kindle App.  Priced at $2.99.  Why so low?  This project was never about me making a ton of money.  I sincerely want to help people with their finances and retirement goals.  If I can make a little on the side, then great.  But I'd rather see you, reader, be successful, build wealth, and give to others when you have more to give.   Take care!
