Author John Mulhall is pleased to announce the release of his new supernatural thriller, Geddy’s Moon.
Geddy’s Moon is a supernatural thriller centered around Tyler, an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy’s Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy’s Moon? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he’s begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.
“This is definitely a page turner that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time!!” – Nicole J.’s Book Blog.
Geddy’s Moon was released by Blanket Fort Books on February 20, 2013 and is currently available from Amazon.com and Amazon UK.
As promised, this tutorial will cover the making of buttons, logos, banners, and other graphic types needed by writers. Not as sexy an issue as covers, but very necessary. And it all applies: if you can create a cool-looking logo, you can create a cool-looking title and byline. In fact, if you examine this collection of images I think you’ll see that the difference between a “logo”, a “banner”, a “button”, and even a “title” is pretty abstract. What you’re seeing there, top to bottom, are: the title for an online serial, my personal logo I use for many things including “signatures” in mailings and forums, a custom SmashWords buy button, a dragon social media avatar, a Twitter button in custom colors, three RSS buttons to match three different sites, and a website header. All basically the same thing, using the same resources and simple skills.
And you’ll love this: it’s a lot easier to do these things. Your chances of learning, fairly quickly, to create good-looking, useful graphic doodads is virtually 100%. And there’s better news than that for those less than comfortable with all the talk of installing and learning graphics programs: you can do it all online without having your own programs, and it’s easier to do that way and at least as high quality! Cool, huh? Continue reading “Banners, Buttons, And Beads”
Rise of the Drakyn by Leonard Little
Word count: 88,717
Marcus gets blood on an ancient amulet,—the only keepsake he has from his mother who died when he was child—alerting the Dark One that the dragon’s heir is still alive. The Dark One sends his drakyn—nearly mindless flesh-eating dragons, hatched from the dead eggs of a dark queen—to pursue Marcus.
His home burned to ashes and Grandfather killed, Marcus sets off on his own with the drakyn only a step behind. He joins scholar Ben, novice healer/dragon-mate Chelene, and her teacher/dragon Xan’Drake.
Together they seek out ways to battle the rampaging evil that’s destroying the kingdom. Betrayal gets them all captured except Marcus, who is left for dead, buried alive beneath tons of gravel and rock. Will Marcus accept his destiny and escape the grave or will he die, leaving his new friends to the tortures of his enemy?
