The Wolves We Are Cover Art (Rough)

The Wolves We Are eBook Cover 300x400

TWWA, Take 2!

In preparation for April Camp NaNoWriMo’s eBook bonanza I’ve been trying to get cover art done for all the stories in the queue. The Saturday Story Prompt covers are easy (if time consuming), but the other stories are a bit harder…

The basic goal for an eBook cover (for me) is to get something simple that scales well and can be read easily all the way down to 75×100. Last check, both Amazon and Smashwords displays the thumbnails at 100×150, so I might need to revise that strategy upwards. *pokes image*

The books that will get me to that minimum goal are as follows. I’m trying to get the SSPs done first so I can spam them into the Smashwords Store and then follow up with actual stories. Continue reading

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2014!

Camp NaNoWriMo

The Plotting Begins!

10,000 words is the smallest goal you can pick, so that’s where I’m starting off!

Since I have a habit of losing Camp NaNo’s with stunning consistency, I figured this time around I had better stack the deck a bit. Not only am I starting with the lowest possible goal, but I’m also working on smaller projects that I’ve already partially completed.

But the twist is that I am only going to count words that are in a new finished eBook. No drafts, no WiPs, no world-building that’s basically just filler. Continue reading
