Teaser Tuesday

So I was given permission from some of the authors in this anthology to give you a sneak peek into it. I will only be listing the ones who gave me permission.

Of course I am a part of it. (I did the cover and am helping to organize it.)

Author – website – title of story – and teaser blurb if they had it ready.

Keep it in mind that they are mostly still writing it. We are expecting a summer release. This is not in any order other than the order of my personal notes.

1.) Jess Reece – Author – Scrydan Woods –

An ancient forest.
A cursed object.
A ghastly offering.

Do you dare to enter the Scrydan Woods?

2.) Serena Mossgraves – Author – Rowan –

Can a tree really end the world? Faeries fighting for the world against the darkness and themselves.

3.)Cyn A Snow – Author

4.) Tish Macwebber – Author (under construction) – Sweet Nothings – Clara spent her days working in a bakery, as a cashier. One day, she decided to go to her local craft store to buy some supplies for a new project. It was soon apparent that she was dabbling in something that was turning out to be a little more than she expected.The next time you try a new craft or hobby, Clara recommends for you to do all the proper research to make sure there are no strings attached…

5.) Micheal Walters – Author – Fey Food Fight

6.) D. Gabrielle Jensen – Author

7.) Deedra Nicole – Author & Editing – Mermaid Pearls

8.) Herschel Pilcher III

9.) Finn O’Malley – Author – Hidden Shadows – No one belonged in the Realm of Hidden Shadows, least of all the King of Air Faeries. Aeolus must retrieve the Air element to fulfill a magical destiny 100 years in the future, but at what cost? The King faces a daunting task of destroying a friendship and crossing murky lines of Dark magic to save what might be lost forever.

We may be considering new stories for it, I am not sure.

So far the stories look like they are going to be an amazing read. Please show these amazing artists some love and visit their pages. I will definitely be keeping you updated as we get closer to release.

Tech Tuesday

I adjusted the schedule for to give myself options. Thursday reviews from now on will be books only. I have two options for each day and I may adjust further.

Today I am going to talk about the Canva app. The website is wonderful, but this is one occasion when I truly prefer the app. Available for android here. To be honest I don’t know if it is available for Apple as I don’t like the way Apple products work. (But those of you who like Apple, check the appstore and let us know)

It has the base social media image templates. It also has cover design templates. Options for adding graphics, text, or multiple pictures. There are free use pictures, subscription pictures (a monthly fee opens up the use of), and pay for use pictures. The app itself is free.

This is how I have been doing the graphics for my poems and my book cover designs. I enjoy the creative options that Canva offers. I highly recommend it for any graphic design needs. Anything from a flyer or brochure to a book or cd cover. It is loaded with options.

Cover Reveal

Soul Drops is three poems from completion. So I am planning to have the next volume ready for words. I believe that Soul Drops will be available for purchase by December the first.

My new volume, as you can see will be titled Spilled Verse. The cover design is mine.

*******************************************************************

 

There is still one poetry volume to update (Soul’s Door)  and the children’s books…but this is all of the links I have so far for both  myself and Serena.

Please enjoy! if you do read any of them, I would love to hear what you think. I included the new covers  in the post so you could see the work I have done.

Professional vs hobby

I have been working on going through my poetry volumes (also did Serena’s novella and her novel). I have been updating covers, double checking layout, spelling and grammar. Now, I published all of them… So I should have been doing very little… And for the newer ones… I have been doing less. I was an indie publisher from the get go… But I really had no clue what I was doing. I designed my covers but I didn’t have access to the tools that I have now. I have learned. I have grown.

The first image is the first cover, the second is the newest. Just because I was not knowledgeable doesn’t mean that I approached publishing as a hobby. Hobbyist, in my opinion are the ones who don’t actually put in any effort to improve how they do things.

I have two more volumes of poetry…Music for the soul and soul’s door. I think that I am finally happy with how they look. I think that I will put off the cleanup/ refresh of my kids books until December as November is shaping up to be very busy.

What is the difference between pro and hobbyist to you?

Looking at my links

Trying to get my books all out on draft2digital. I have all of them on Amazon for both ebook(mobi) or paperback. I am trying to get the layout right for d2d and do some updates on covers and the like. I do all of the covers for me and for Serena. I am working with a couple of other authors, so I may be doing some for them as well.

This is what’s out for all editions.
Will post for each as i finish them. All Books will have three links. Amazon with two links and then one for everywhere else.
