When I say I have learned a lot that is an understatement. I have learned more that I could have possibly ever imagined. My visual experience when it comes to books has grown by leaps and bounds and still have a lot more to learn. Anyway here are the posters for the book Something in the Shadows. I hope to be seeing them all over the place and I should if everyone in the group does their part. So here are all of them, for now anyway, for the first time.
It looks like we are almost ready to publish the book Something in the Shadows. I have to say this has been an interesting journey and one I’ll never forget. I have been able to learn more than I could have possibly ever imagines from these fantastic writers. Their determination to push ahead with this project has been awe inspiring.
The fact that they have put up with me is no small matter either. I have been a real terror at times. No I’m not a diva but I can be demanding when I want to get something done. I’m also a stickler for wanting people to work together but then I also micro manage and am learning to step aside for others to do more.
I’ve had this project taking up so much of my time, and at times yes I resented it but now, I’m glad for all the experience that has come out of it. I think I’m a better writer and I’m learning so much about book covers, editing images, not to mention videos. The experience I’ve gained is priceless. Most of all I’m so grateful for the trust that these wonderful writer have shown in me.
I hope you will check out the video and here is the link to my page where you will find the video, https://www.facebook.com/bloodlinesthecurse/
So please check it out and I hope you enjoy our little window on our book.
I’m sitting here permanently scarred by a show my husband was watching on TV. As soon as I finish this little message of terror I’m going to find me a really dark corner and crawl into it and cry for my Mommy and my blankey as I suck my thumb. Yes I have rediscovered my thump during this very traumatic experience.
Now here’s the thing. My wonderful, extremely helpful, most often considerate hubby doesn’t read my stories because they are scary. Are you kidding me? Does he not find this horrific program scary? I mean you have dead bodies and people talking about what they do to them. Now I know that the show is basically a public service thing, to me it is nothing but a scary show, and I’m sure it serves a purpose. I mean I guess you have to drum up people to donate their bodies to science but I just find it creepy.
Now I know for someone who writes horror stories I should be able to handle this. I do know that it serves a purpose but really? I mean to me it wasn’t much more than a commercial for body donations. Save that stuff for when I’m on my death bed in a hospital and stick a piece a paper under my nose that I have no idea what it is and then maybe I’ll sign it but please Buddy don’t make me watch this. It scares me. I just made him home made chocolate chip cookies too.
I’ve decided my hubby is a meany and now I’m finding that corner and crawling into it. If my Mommy does show up I’ll be happy to see her after I get over fainting from seeing dead people.
I forgot how much of a comfort my thumb was. “Mommy is that you?”
Getting closer to the release of the book from the group The Creative Evil Female Mind and Other Evil Geniuses. It has been a hard road and there has been more than one bump in the road. Stories have come and gone and new ones taken the place of those.
It hasn’t been an easy process but I have to say the people who are working on this book are outstanding. They have worked and put their faith in one another. They have worked long and hard and put so much of themselves into this that I will be forever changed by the experience.
I don’t know if this will be something the group will ever do again but if they do I know it will be incredible. They strive to grow and improve in everything they do.
It isn’t just the writers either. We have a group of talented people working together from almost any art form and all of them work together to bring something to the table. The images for the promotional endeavors comes from so many of the members. The people who agree to be our models, no matter what we may do to them, never ceases to astound me. I do know of one who would probably like to shoot me, however she still takes what I continue to put her through with a reasonably decent attitude, well most of the time.
What continues to blow me away is how well these people work together. The fact that they continue to put up with me is mind boggling. I have to admit at times I haven’t been all sunshine and roses. Did I admit that? Damn there must be something wrong.
The most spectacular thing about this whole project is that not one person working in it will every gain anything from it. Well that isn’t quite true. You see all the funds for this book will go to charity and each will have the satisfaction of knowing that they were able to help someone who needed it. I can’t say what the chosen charity is yet but I hope that we will be able to publicly announce that when the book comes out. We are a group of horror writers and in some cases some people may not be comfortable with that. So regardless of how it’s done the money will go to a very good cause.
So fasten your seatbelts and get ready for a horrific ride because we will take you one a trip through the darkest shadows of our minds.
