I finally jumped in and decided to give Fiverr a chance. They said a lot of good things about some of the artists and of course there were the bad things. But I was blessed and chose a really nice and easy to talk to artist concerning my concept for Wonderlost. She has done a gorgeous first sketch. Better than I imagined. Can’t wait for the touch ups and then color! I will still go to my brother first for my covers, but I know where to go when he’s a little busy. Can’t show y’all yet, but she’s working faster than I thought she would.
Well, the summer is almost over and I have nothing to really show for it. I’ve done a lot of writing and drawing, but nothing has been completed or finished. Money has held the finalization of two of my projects hostage. But on the bright side that means I have time to fine tune my stories and I will see them completed by tax time. 😜 Doctor visits, Tae Kwon Do classes and two accidents can really throw your plans out of wack. But, I didn’t just sit on my thumbs and whine about it. I did get a lot of inspiration and a lot of writing done. My style of writing has changed a bit, I can even say matured. I’m proud of myself and can’t wait to see what the betas think of them.
Wonderlost 2: Reunions – A Gray Spring (tying up loose ends-book 3 of my Red Summer series) – these are the two main stories I’ve been working on. The shall hopefully be edited and published by April 2019!
I was doing some random cleaning and came across an old beat up box of my stuff. More proof of my issue of hoarding. Old books, jewelry, banana hair clips, and then my old portfolio! A monster of cracking pleather and dust. Proof that I never give up on story ideas. These drawings are dated from 1994 through 1997 🤭
