This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

TTTC - Chapter Six - Page 5


Now that the Terrible Turtle Conspiracy has it's own website, I'll no longer post the whole comic here in one long blog. Instead, each week I will post a link to the newest page, like I've been doing on Myspace.

What is the TTTC? It's a webcomic written by Jonathan Harvey and illustrated by me. we add a page every week, so be on the lookout. Why not visit http://TerribleTurtles.com and subscribe?

More book covers!

Jump up and down because I have MORE book covers to share! Ha ha!

Made from two images from dreamstime.com. The boy was originally on a modern bike, so I clone brushed the new bike out and replaced it with an older style bicycle. I think it came out pretty well, except in retrospect I'm not sure why his other foot isn't on a peddle. I should have drawn in a leg. Oh well.

Though this isn't the final version, I liked the background texture here. it looks metallic. This is the final:

All the images were provided by the author, in fact I know she took the photo of the camo herself :)

fonts and vectors.


The Dance


photo is from dreamstime. I also got to read this one (It's for a short story) and have to say I enjoyed it. It's not up on Smashwords yet, or I'd link to it!

This is an art media/texture/raster mix. Google the author name. Go on, do it. Now how friggn' cool is that!?!?!? I am in geek fan mode at the moment!!! Have had to stop myself from saying "Oh! send me an autograph!"




vs2


And another image from dreamstime, though fun trivia fact: the original has a bunch of math computations on the paper, so I erased those and added a page from my story about a woman killing her husband because he snores (I happened to have it opened at the time). You can;t read it, but it gives it the submitted manuscript look, anyway! :)


I have some winter photos I need to put up one of these days, too....

Are Book Covers Doomed?

This is from CBS news:



One interesting thing that I think they left out of the video is that eBooks need covers too. For instance, most eBook publishers have specifics regarding a book cover before you can publish with them, or get added to their premium distributions. Those covers still help sell the books the same as the covers do on a paper back. Personally, I have no fear that book covers will go away.

What about you? Are you guilty of "judging a book by it's cover"? How often to you check out a book (read a sample, click to know more, pick the book up in the store, etc) because the cover appealed to you?
