Checking in late today. I fell into a Photoshop black hole, and I’m just now crawling out of it.
I splurged on a couple of Photoshop actions, and let me tell you… that’s hours of fun right there. Worth every cent.
I’m still looking for the right stock photos for my covers. The models don’t need to look exactly how I see the characters in my mind, but it helps if the attitude is right.
Then you need a supply of poses, preferably on an isolated background (or one that’s fairly neutral), and, and, and … you get the idea.
In actual writing news, I finished the short story I was working on. I’m now letting it rest a bit before I revise and send it off.
I also started outlining the companion novella. The main challenge here is to keep it at novella length. I hope to start writing it soon, possibly as early as this coming week.
