All the little things you have to do

Any of you who have been following me know that I am an author. As a self pub I have to do a lot of things to bring my work to the public. The joy of actually writing leveled by the research, editing, proof reading, making covers, teasers, trailers and then marketing.

Well as I am in the final read through of A Fragile Peace, I am working on the cover. This is of course the third book of a series. What that means is that I need to find ways to connect the covers so my readers will know this is the same series. You can’t just put the series name on the cover. You need to have a theme, use the same fonts and possible variations on the image of the other covers.

With this series the first two books have a dagger on the cover. Something that makes sense to the series. Now this is a bit lighter than the first two books so I have used a lighter color than the last cover but well. It just doesn’t seem right to me. I am trying to figure out how to put in some textures and well trying to figure out how to make the different blade seem better.

Here is the first steps of the cover. As you can see it needs a LOT of tweeks.


I will have to see what can be done to make this better. I want to try to get the novel out next week.

  1. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?
    Cheers, I appreciate it!
