Imaginary Me - Audiobook Cover

As I'm writing the next book for Fram Gage, it's getting more difficult to find time to write blog posts. They're probably going to be more infrequent and shorter in length as a result.

But here's one for today! And true to the above statement, it's shorter in length!

The final cover design for the audiobook for Imaginary Me is below. It's a slight variation of the book cover. You'll notice that my author name is less prominent. And it also specifies who is reading the audiobook.

Of course, that's Michel Young! So far, about a third of the book is recorded and I have to say I can't be happier with what Michael is doing! This is turning into a fantastic production. He's bringing the book to life in a way I never could have imagined.

Other requirements for an audiobook cover is that it be square in shape. This forced me to make some slight changes to how the image of Sammy Pruitt and her imaginary friend were placed. For most, it'll go unnoticed.

Overall, I'm happy with the cover. Look for more updates on the Imaginary Me audiobook in future blog posts!

P.S. - Imaginary Me is discounted to $4.99 for the month of March on Amazon if you can't wait for the audiobook and want to start reading it now!

Designing a Book Cover - The Fourth Layer

 In my last post, I spoke about "The Third Layer" in my process of designing book covers. That was adding the author name. I also likened layers one through three to being a cake. It's baked. The layers are stacked. And it's edible. But in order to entice someone to eat the cake, the final decorations—icing, color, flowers, etc.—need to be added. So what can I do with my current book cover to spruce it up? The Fourth Layer of course! This is the crucial and final layer. This is where everything comes together to form the complete book cover. The steps I use below are my own. You'll need to determine what is needed for your cover when you get to this layer. Only you know your book. Only you know what's important. The Fourth Layer is where you can get creative. First, I want to continue with the older adventure book type feel. With The Legend of Kyd Lumin , I want people to think it's a book not published in 2021 but rather, published sometime in the 80'

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus. In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself? In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Designing a Book Cover - The Third Layer

In my last post, I spoke about "The Second Layer" of designing a book cover, which is making sure you title stands out well.  Now we head to "The Third Layer". This one probably will seem obvious and it complements "The Second Layer" . It is your author name. It's important that your author name be positioned and sized correctly. There are a few approaches to this. For well known authors—for instance Stephen King or James Patterson—having the author name prominent and big on the cover is good. The reason is, their names are so popular that the author name sells the book more so than the book title sells it. As a self-published author you could use this thought process for your cover to give the impression that you are a popular author. Of course, your mileage will vary with this approach. The other option is to not allow the author name to dominate the content. So you would want it to be smaller than the title. You could even make it barely noticeable
