This is a vampire romance (of sorts) staring Tom Hiddleston. I’m surprised I’d never heard of it before. It’s gotten good reviews. Maybe people aren’t as enamored of Mr. Hiddleston as I thought! Anyway, it’s playing for this week only at the Neon Movies (they tend to show the artsy films), and we’re going on $5 movie night. I’ll let you know if it’s any good (you know, in case you’re into vampire romance flicks).
Okay, now time for a cover reveal. Yeah, it’s for one of my stories. No, it’s not for “Bite Me, I’m Yours” (I’m still trying to find out when I can share that one!). This is for my short story, “Forever Thirty-Two,” the back story of the hero (John Pennington) in
was a story I needed to write (for myself) as I wrote Bite Me, and discovered
it made an interesting short story. It’s not a romance (John doesn’t get his
happy ending until the novel), but it has sex in it (so—warning, warning!).
Anyway, the story starts out on New Year’s in 1957 in Bite Me.
and it’s snowing. I had an idea of what I wanted my cover to look like and I happened
to be in Columbus, Ohio
on this past New Year’s Eve. I found a park across the street from a hospital
(a hospital John could have been working at) and took several pictures. I would
have preferred there being snow on the ground (it certainly was cold enough for
snow), but probably wouldn’t have been able to GET to the park if it had snowed.
I was just happy to have found a park that worked. J Columbus
My husband works with someone who loves to play around with photos. He was willing to create the cover for me so I gave him several different photos to choose from.
Here’s the photo of mine he chose:
Here’s the finished cover:
Can you believe they’re the same photo? It’s perfect for what I want.
Eventually, I’ll be giving away my short story, hoping to generate some interest in
Heck, maybe I’ll generate
some interest in “My Sunny Vampire.” I can only hope. Bite
My husband will format “Forever Thirty-Two” in epub and mobi versions (he wants the practice). Not sure if I’ll “sell” it on Amazon and B&N, since I don’t plan on charging anything. I may just feature it here and my website and Facebook. Or a newsletter, if I ever get off my butt to create one.
Hey! Did you notice? I added some reaction buttons (down below) for my posts. Forgot I could do something like that, and didn’t know I could make them unique. Frankly, I think the suckers should be big and bold (and maybe in an eye-catching color), but who am I to complain? The site is free, right?
So… Do you read newsletters? Think I should start one? What kind of stuff do you like to read on them? News? New content?
Have a good day!
