I’ve been playing around with a book cover idea for Shaman 2. What do you think?
I had a little hiccup which led to some of the apps delivering the ebook on April 2nd. I really enjoyed writing this story and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it. The other day, when the snow began falling gently where I live (before the snowstorm), it reminded me of the scene in the story when the first snow fell on the rain planet. It only snows every 25 years so it’s always a special event. I’m glad we have winters here. When the earth is covered in a blanket of white, it’s really breathtaking.
Look what came in!
Aeva is a story about humanity. What choices do you have when you are left with really, no choice? The rules are against you. The people you believed in failed you. Everything hinges on hope.

If you’re looking for something less expensive than Photoshop CC to create your artwork for your books, Affinity is currently having a 50% off sale on all three products (Photo, Designer, and Publisher). Last year, I purchased all three for the same deal. I’m a Photoshop user and have been using the software for a couple of decades now but I wanted to try out Affinity. I’ve tried it out a couple of times since purchasing but only dabbled for a few minutes. This time, I thought I’d give it a little more time. The reason I bought Affinity was mainly because of the price, but also because I had heard it was similar to Photoshop. To be honest, I don’t think it’s very similar at all. I had to Google what I needed for the simple photo composite below. I’d love to someday switch from Photoshop CC to Affinity, but we’ll see.
Here’s the composite using Affinity:
Here it is using Photoshop CC.
You could see that I was able to add more shadows around the eyes. It’s because I didn’t know how to do it in Affinity and I was done with Googling. I also used the warp tool, layers, and other tools in Photoshop. Whereas, on the Affinity image, it would take some time to learn those tools. If you know of a good Youtube tutorial I could learn from, let me know.
