Book cover drawn out for Supermarket Dominium

Part 3 of The Supermarket Guy: Supermarket Dominiums book cover is now drawn out.

It just needs to be all colored in now. This will take another day tomorrow, possibly, if I get the time. Today time was short for me once again. Night shifts took a toll on the body, and I slept probably half of the day today.

The first original book cover in my mind was to place the 3 main characters in the desert. There in the background, a nuclear weapon is blown up creating a sandstorm. The two heroes shown in the desert sand, gasping for water, and hallucinating. The main villain triumphant with his arms raised to the sky, pressing a button detonating it. This cover idea has been placed into the waste paper basket, as the newer cover includes a scene from the book. A humorous one at that,  in order to try to spark more interest for the book itself and the series.

As I feel I perhaps missed with my last two book covers. This one should be quite a bit better. I hope.

This is what brought about the thinking to change the original book cover. I had a rough sketch of the first one drawn out. I realized it was very hard to make it funny. And I decided, it is a humor book after all. I should make the cover funny. So then I went through the whole book in my mind. Trying to decide which page would fit on a cover. Somewhere 1/2 way through the book, I got the idea for the cover. Maybe other scenes could have done just as well or even better, but this one had a certain fatality to it and mystery as well. So far, unless nothing creeps up in my mind tonight, it is what I will go with.

I kept the same wording or title as Parts 1 and 2. It did not take me all that long to draw it out. I was surprised to see how decently it did turn out. It is the first time I drew it out on paper, without a light sketch underneath or anything like that. I did photocopy some of the titles in case I made a tremendous mistake in drawing things out, but this was not required, luckily enough.

I am very much content with this book cover. Now the color schemes, will be tricky enough. I do not like to use the same color schemes as my other two books. I will try to get away from the light blue, and the charcoal smoke of the second part. It should be, very much, different.

Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
