OR: Late to the Party Excuse #555!
Newsflash Yvonne: This month is a short one – check the calendar to remember your posting date. (And so, date checked – it’s today and my turn to post ) It’s very late in afternoon – but post I will nonetheless. I didn’t have anything planned in concrete yet and so in order to expedite the blog – I shall post what was…
I was on Twitter earlier this month and found out February is Women in Horror Month. Well, that’s right up my alley and I started posting about it.
Right up my alley – but….
You should see the scenes cut OUT of my books! For various reasons but usually because of the graphic nature – and not the romance kind. You get to read the cleaned up – shiny versions. 🙂
I made myself a magazine cover! From Scratch. And I’m going to tell you – these days there is little worse than spending hours on a seemingly, deceptively easy – banner/social media post and then have little to no response.
I can spend hours upon hours searching the web for copyright free images, switching up pre-made layouts – trying different fonts, colors, pictures, ideas, cover photos, etc. etc. HOURS I tell you! Until (always) it has little or no resemblance at all to the original template. BUT It HAS to balance or I start over.
If they don’t line up for me – it’s no good. I get frustrated and scrap it or start over umpteen million times. They could be perfectly symmetrical – and not balance for me.
OR then (horrors of horrors) I post it THEN in the reposting – something is out of line! At that point I either delete or give it a big “Chuck” it…. without the “ch” LOL
So, being this is SO SO SO late in the afternoon – I’m going to post the magazine cover here:
After you have appreciated and ooh’d and aaah’d ( would you please?) Think about YOUR favorite horror/paranormal books – and tell me!
Soon we will get back to our Journal Writing Prompts – as soon as I line them all up again. THIS was the year to be organized and I’ve yet to start that…. yet…
I’m also always open to suggestions. 🙂
Have an awesome month.
