It’s a family affair… (Contest–2 Winners)
Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

UPDATE: The winners are…Damaris Schuler and Colleen C!

Some months ago, my dd, who is NOT a romance reader, noted that a lot of authors have beautiful memes to advertise their books on Instagram and Facebook. She wondered why I didn’t have any or rather why I had so few and terrible-looking ones at that. In response, I got a little defensive. “Like I have time for that? I have books to write and edit!” She said, “Well, how hard can it be?” I challenged her to take up the task. Then we talked about the tools she needed. Inside a day, she had my first meme.

And strangely, she found she loved doing it. It’s something she can do in her spare time while she’s overseeing the kids doing their online schooling or late at night when she’s sitting with her hubby watching something boring on TV. Here’s a sampling of her work. It’s really not complicated, but she does spend time looking for artwork and playing with fonts and phrases. I’m thrilled with her help.

We’ve been working on putting up pics for books in my big ol’ backlist, just to remind readers there are likely series they’ve never seen before.

Here’s a meme she created yesterday for Bad to the Bone from my Night Fall vampire/werewolf series…

I thought this one was particularly cute because it hints at my heroine’s “Lady Godiva” motorcycle ride in the opening scene of Slow Rider

Sometimes, it’s not art it’s an eye-popping color, and I do LOVE the melon orange she used for my latest release, Hot SEAL, In His Memory

Here, she found the perfect picture to illustrate this very sexy Viking anthology, Conquests!

    She is talented… these are eye catching… for me I like to see something that has meaning to the story.

    I like a short blurb or endorsement from a reader/author review. Of the one’s shown, I like the Viking one best.

    I like the viking the best because it’s striking. I generally prefer simple and clean with easy information.

    Just to say, I think you daughter definitely has a great eye for this–the images she chooses and the colors/fonts all add to eye catching teasers!

    She did a great job! I love it when there’s a catchy line from the book on the meme. Or a catchy line like she did on Bad to the Bone!
