Spring has arrived. Flowers are blooming, trees are budding, and allergies are in overdrive. LOL! Still, we can’t let them keep us down. Pass the tissues, pop a Benedryl, and let’s talk about my April #Giveaway and #Contest! WOOT!
Yesterday, on my Facebook page, I announced my decision to keep the original #coverart for Blind Sight. A while back, I asked my CA to make a new cover because the original was not the best quality and looked a bit fuzzy on paperbacks. I procrastinated in changing the covers out, always with the excuse that I was too busy. And I have been busy, but really, how long does it take? LOL!
I finally faced the truth. The real reason I’ve put off the exchange is because I can’t let the original “Jordan” go. The new cover is beautiful (my CA rocks), but the model on the front is not the Jordan I’ve come to know and love. I may get in touch with the original model and see if she can provide a higher resolution of the photo I used. Until then, #JordanLives!
With this in mind, I need to change my #Facebook banner. It has the new cover displayed and I want it replaced with the original one. I want a banner that dazzles, that grabs attention, that screams out and demands to be noticed!
Unfortunately, I am in the middle of #edits on the second book in the Celadon Circle series, Refracted, AND it takes me an entire day to make a banner. I’m not kidding. I always position the photos wrong and they end up partially covered by the tabs at the top. It takes forever to choose a background, fonts…
I need help!
That’s where YOU come in. The rules of my April #contest/#giveaway are simple: Design a Facebook banner for my author page.
I’m so excited!!!
All entries will be showcased in a special photo album on my page for everyone to admire, with credit given to the artist and their links (if applicable). The winner will get a special gift.
Giving up this #prize will be more difficult for me than writing a synopsis. It would look fab on my desk.
With #fantasy books in mind, I ordered some UNbelieveable #artwork from the amazingly talented Karen Altman!
Are you ready for this???
Design the banner that knocks my knickers off and you’ll receive a beautiful mini picture frame in antique silver or bronze. Inside the frame are THREE mini prints designed by Karen. They can be switched out for new a new look!
