Rewrites & Book Covers

Been busy this past week. Mostly with rewrites for my sci-fi novellas. These stories were written between 2006 - 2008, and were left to cool off for almost two more years. Since then, I have been editing like crazy. But no matter how many passes I've made through my words, with my keen vulture eyes, I still keep seeing room for improvement. Things are looking good though. So, who knows, might just be hitting that Upload button on Amazon pretty soon.

As for book covers, still haven't found a decent artist within budget (sub $50). This is why I've been forced to don my Graphic Designer cape from back in the day. This is what I have so far. It's pretty basic, I know, but at least it's a start:

My Very First Blog Post

Hello World,

Well, after many years of flirting with the idea of starting a blog, I finally got around to doing so. Truly monumental stuff.

I am an artist of many forms: I compose music, develop websites, and of recent I have been planning to e-publish a few of my science fiction novellas on Amazon (that's right, I write books too. :D).

What to expect in the next couple of days? Well, like I said, I would really love to put my books up on Amazon, and have been working hard on multiple rewrites. But alas, I have been unable to find a good (and also affordable) cover artist, and I kinda suck when it comes to editing pictures and manipulating graphics, or at least I think that I do. It's all good though; I'm already committed to e-publishing, and I would be putting my books up in the not-too-distant future, come what may.

Wow. So there goes my very first post. That wasn't so hard after all. Can't wait to do this again. :D
