Here’s another What’s Going On post

I know, it’s been silent here. Off-line life’s taking up more and more time, with studies, exams, work and other bits and pieces.

Despite that, the writing life is continuing, be it not as rapidly as we all would like.

Baba Yaga

The editing is going on. We’re almost there, so hang in there please! I have found someone in Finland who makes wonderful art, and she is creating the cover image for the book. That is coming along nicely, I can tell you.

I know that many people don’t like the main character on a cover, so they can create their own image of the person. Bad news: Babs is on the cover. Good news: she’s on the cover and you only see her from the back. I guess that evens things out, right? 🙂

Sneak peek of a part of the cover for Baba Yaga.

Tindaya

That’s getting closer to publishing too. A story about two people who discover all kinds of amazing things around a sacred mountain. I am still working on the cover for it. Deciding on some details took me a long time but that’s now a done deal. All I have to do is actually create that cover. Most of it is ready, but the devil is always in the details.

Kobie

You may know I put out a first book about a young woman who encounters witchcraft:

Kobie – Witch’s Training

I am working on an English version of the book at the moment. I have progressed to chapter 5 so far and all looks well at this point.

You may not believe it but…

This is a screenshot from the
GIMP  image editing program

The image up here is the start of a cover for a book that’s not done yet. This is going to end up as the cover for “Tindaya”, a book I’ve mentioned several times already.

So what do these colours stand for?

The white, blue and yellow make up the flag for the Canary Islands, which is where Tindaya is situated.

For that reason I thought this should be part of the cover. A very simple idea, I know, but it adds something to the feel for me. If you think it’s the worst idea since the previous worst idea, let me know and we can talk about it.

For now I am going to work with this. Add some words to it, like the title. Yes, it’s “Tindaya”. How did you guess that? Can you also guess the subtitle? Maybe I will reveal that soon too – I’m still deciding which one it will be.

For now I wish you a pleasant and relaxed Sunday while I continue working on the cover and reworking the story.
