Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
This is the cover I’ve designed for my little collection of stories coming out soon. I didn’t want to drop a lot of coin on an artist’s services for this one, so I bought the image and did the photo editing on Pic Monkey. It was surprisingly fun and easy, though one complaint is that there’s no way to save your work on the site unless you pop for a paid account (“as little as $2.75 a month”). That means you have to do all your editing in one session, or leave your browser open on the editing page. I mocked something up to practice, then did the final work with the full-resolution image later.
Our Children Are Not Our Children will be published in the next couple of weeks, first on Amazon, then on other outlets via Smashwords. I’m working on ways to get free copies to everyone on my newsletter list (sign up via Grampa Simpson in the sidebar!), so you can read the “book” — 4700 words strong — without coughing up 99 cents.
Alternatively (*wink*), you can help support the author by buying it. If I sell twenty of these things, I’ve paid for the cover!
