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!
