I tried to work on it myself, even uploading a trial version of pixelmator for the occasion, but iPhoto won't do what I need it to do, nor will picnik.com, color splash studio, or image tricks lite. Pixelmator will, but I'm feeling very pixel-retarded on that app, and, after, 30 minutes, I couldn't even get the size of trial photo to where I wanted it, let alone put on text or fix the colors! Grrrrr.
So, Max, I am in your hands once again for cover help. Are you up for it?
And to the rest of the blog readers, I would still love your comments on this back-of-the-book hook for HV Family. Only Tempppo, Brigid Kemmerer, and Martin have shared their thoughts so far. What does anyone else think???
Think you’ve got a weird family?
Eric’s mother is clearly in love with Patrick, who just happens to be Eric's first cousin once removed. And a vampire. Eric thinks Patrick would be the world’s coolest step-dad, but Mom’s in no mood for matrimony. Worse than that, her side of the family hasn’t spoken with her in Eric’s entire lifetime -- at least not until Eric and his way-too-attractive cousin Ari both win a piano competition that takes them to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. And into the path of Eric’s biological father, a vampire who’s recently taken to attacking the locals at night. Eric's creepy dad finds Ari attractive. Not to mention tasty.
Can an accidental family reunion get any stranger than this? Eric doesn’t think so. And neither does the self-proclaimed vampire hunter staying right next door to him in the dorm.
It’s going to be one heck of a summer vacation.
Oh, and what about this hook for Brigid? Comments on this anyone? Suggestions?
Pepper Kircy isn't quite sure why she's never managed to attract the attention of a guy before. It could be because her father's into ghost hunting. Or that she lives across the street from a mortuary. Or maybe it's because she wears a "nearly-A" bra. But she's never even had a date, at least not until she meets Dougal at a fantasy faire.
Dougal's not at all what she's dreamed up for herself; he's too short and probably too old. But he quotes poetry and compares her to a goddess. He's tempting. Tempting enough that Pepper can't seem to get him out of her dreams. So, in spite of all his weird talk about going through portals and finding the Stone of Odin, Pepper could really like this guy. If he'd just stop trying to kill her.
And now I'm off to start what I hope is the FINAL proofread for Half-Vampire. If the cyber gods are willing, that book just might be for sale in POD form in a few days!!
