A Hard Day’s Work

I love staying busy. There’s something about letting my mind flow, create, and/or learn. That was my day today. I started by doing a bit of writing, working on chapter four of [the quiet]. Later in the day, I started taking a course on GIMP, a photo manipulation program akin to Photoshop. I already had many brushes from Photoshop so I have a nice collection to work with. GIMP is really nice and is set up very much like Photoshop so I’m picking it up quickly. As you can see in the images below, I’m able to make some nice imagery that I hope I can make some great covers.

Yes, It’s Been Awhile…

I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been away from blogging on here. My apologies to those who were concerned. I’ve been learning a new program that will help me to make my own book covers in the future. I thank my cover designers a lot for making my last two covers and also want to explore my creativity.

I’m also heavily working on advertising Parachute Island and The Valiants. Self-publishing is more than just writing; there includes editing, marketing, and advertising. Marketing and advertising is not my forte and it tends to eat a lot of my time as it is a 24/7 job. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy self-publishing. But I just am working on figuring out how to juggle everything.

Thank you all for continuing to stick with me in this journey. I love writing and I love sharing all my stories with you.
