Branding, Writing, and other Busy Stuff

Time is escaping me. This could very easily be a post about the dangers of time-wasting, but I'd like to stay positive today because Game On 3 is coming along nicely now, and I don't want to jinx it by focusing on anything even slightly negative. (Needless to say, much time-wasting happened, but I'm done with that now!)

I have decided on a release date for the next GO book, and it is quickly approaching. Over the weekend, out of nowhere, I got a surge of motivation to get organised, and part of that organisation involved re-branding my teasers for Game On. You see, everyone else's teaser pictures match. They have the same fonts, and the same style so you can see it and instantly think, "Oh, that's one of (insert author's) teasers!" I wanted that. So, I bring you a couple of examples of my improved teaser pics.



Okay, I do realise the third one is a little different, but by "matching" I mean, the title and author parts look the same, and the fonts match, and they all have the same swirly pattern in the corners. My previous ones were a bit of a mish-mash. I like these a lot more.

On the subject of Game On - I think I am going to do a cover reveal next week. If you're interested in giving me a hand, please leave a comment and your email address if I don't already have it - and I will send over the details during the week!

Also, before I go, don't forget the WIP: The Movie Bloghop is on Friday! Follow the link for details and sign-ups!

That's all for now - my characters are calling me!

  11. I think that third works great with the series because it's not a romantic teaser, but one showing off (very nicely) your MC's voice. :)

  12. I like the teasers; I think they look romantic! I wish I could say my characters are calling me, but they're not speaking to me right now because I've been neglecting them for other work.

  16. Mine are a mish mash too. That's one of the beauties of self-publishing, you can tweak as you see fit. I have to be a pain in the butt to my publisher.

    You've got my email...hit me up, I'd love to help!
