New Book Cover. New Entry.

Dear readers, gather ’round, gather ’round. Okay, that was patronising. I’m sorry. Don’t beat me. I just like amusing myself with silly statements sometimes.

Anyway, as you can see, my friend Andrew has mocked up a book cover for my second unpublished book in the JLM Series. He’s doing these off his own back and free for me. I personally think they’re really well done and it makes me really thankful to have such good friends around me. The second book is called Shadows & Ghosts (in case you hadn’t guessed).

I’ve heard on the grapevine that is twitter (from the lovely iamJaymes who cheers me up greatly with his tweets) that Stefanie Meyer has written a new novella. Unfortunately it is still following her silly saga about sparkly vampires. That still grates on me. I can see how it’s a clever idea, but it’s the most un-vampire thing I have ever heard. Couldn’t they have glowed? Wouldn’t that have been better than them looking like they’ve been decorating Christmas cards with small children? Maybe that’s just me, but I find it stupid. And I find the number of people obsessed with it even more ridiculous. Especially when some of those people are mothers. I mean, really, what is the world coming to when mothers are convincing their daughters to read about boys who sparkly? I’m sorry, but the only boys I know who sparkle generally don’t do it to attract women. I’m pretty sure that they have an entirely different agenda. I also fail to see how vampires having kids would work, as well. I mean, I’m pretty sure the guy’s supposed to be dead down there unless I’m missing something and corpses really can have children. I’d explain this in more detail… but I think that clever individuals will see where I’m coming from anyway.

Anyway, I’m going to try and finish off my editing of this chapter. When I do that, I intend to write a piece about book fandom battles. It’ll be fictional and basically my own little mad twist on the situation. I may post it here. Then again, I may make it too long to fit here and just link off to it.

  1. Heh, awesome blog entry (not including the book cover, won't pass judgment since I made it. I'm not one to blow my own trumpet… or snap it, for that matter).

    I'll certainly offer continued book cover services. I don't care about payment, your continued appreciation and your being-a-good-friend-ness are payment enough.

    o.o @ Twilight. Just… seriously. o.o. If only Cedric Diggory had broken his neck while performing that stunt in Harry Potter 4. Maybe that woulda stopped the series… ahem.

    And, of course, edit checking services are always provided free of charge also. DSotM's edited form is coming along beautifully; anyone that decides to reject it when you send it off to publishers is a moron.

  2. Again, great cover, NAL. Though personally the bright purple text at the top of it looks out of place. I think maybe a deeper, darker purple would look better and more fitting. 🙂

    Also, I didn't know you could follow WordPress blogs from Blogger… I'll put a link to your site on my blog, Rebecca. 🙂
