From Savvy Authors:
Since giving me instruction is like talking to a brick wall, I’m always mildly surprised when anything comes of my attempts to make book covers for my friends, but I was particularly proud of the cover I made this week and wanted to share it.
This cover is for the short story, Wishing for Grace by Inez Kelley.
It’s a follow up to her Carina Press release, Turn It Up.
I like the image Inez chose. The chubby little hand, the light, all of it. I read the short, too. Even without having read Turn It Up (which released today), the short made me misty-eyed.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to speak at the September meeting of the Birmingham Books and Babes (BBB) Book Club. I’ll post reminders as the time draws nearer, but I also wanted to mention it so that travel arrangements can be made well in advance.
I was told by the coordinator there will be games and prizes, a Kindle among them, and lots of chatter. Sounds like a good time, right?
If you’d like to join in, the meeting will be held on September 24 from 1-4pm at Dales Southern Grill. I’m excited to check them out. I’ve never been there, but the website has the cool, retro feel I love.
I also got some exciting news this morning. I may be one of the few guest speakers who brings their own guest speakers, but I think the more the merrier in this case. I’ll be announcing my c0-guests? speaker speakies? on my website and blog soon.
I finally bit the bullet and started an author page on Facebook last night.
What do you think? Pretty, huh?
It took me longer than I’d like to admit to figure out how to make that welcome/landing page work, but it’s there now. The only thing is, depending on how you zoom in and out, the wording goes wonky. Not cool, but unavoidable. I’ll have to tinker with it. There’s also a cool Good Reads application wired into the page. You know how it goes–you get a new toy and you must play with it.
Speaking of which, if you see the page blink in and out or if it looks crazy for more than the span of a few hours, I can almost promise you I’m playing with it. I tend to tinker a lot. If you’re here, reading this, then you’ve been to my website and you know these things.
