New YouTube Channel!

Hey all. As some of you might know, I am working on publishing my first novel, Forces and the Malachite Stone, a middle grade fantasy book that is the first in a trilogy. I have a new YouTube channel where I will be sharing insight on the writing process, the self-publishing process, and other related things. Currently I do not have many videos but plan to upload a video weekly. Make sure to check it out and give it a thumbs up to support me! Also, if you have suggestions of any topics you would like me to discuss in a video, let me know in a comment below!

Enjoy your rainy Sunday! Happy writing!

Images for your Cover Art

Good Afternoon! For those of you interested in the process of making a cover for your book, if you read my last post, you might know that finding a good image could be a bit difficult.

I do believe that finding free and royalty free images through various websites can work quite well once tweaked here and there for any realistic fiction book. When it comes to a more imaginative work, however, such images as found on Pixabay or other free sites are a bit more difficult to find.

In such cases, you can have a freelancer design it for you, or go ahead and purchase an image. The images that are more creative in style are those that you’ll usually have to purchase, and will convey the message of your book much better. After all, your cover goes a long way in attracting readers.

Purchasing is easy – just as easy as buying something from Amazon.

Good luck on your image search.
