Utterly New and Unique

“Someone said there’s nothing new under the sun, but this proves them wrong.”
This is the opening line on artist Ken Delmar’s website. And from what I see, it’s definitely true. There are people you come across in your daily journeys who amaze you. Some in big ways and some in small ways. Either way, they are still amazing.

Ken is a paper towel artist. Yes, you heard me right, paper towel artist.

He is an amazing person to me. I hope you find him to be just that also…

Please listen to his story in this short video;

This is his website if you would like to check him out:

Now on to the MOST amazing little person I know….
My Ryan, My Angel, My True Story:

Thinker of Deep Things

Ryan asked while watching TV, “Mum, what does droppings mean?’
In the context of how the word was used, I said, “It’s the same as poop. It means poop in a nicer way.”
He looked at me, almost looking through me, probably deciding this was an extremely uninteresting answer, and asked, “So what does mean mean?”
Dumbfounded, I said, “Ummmmmmmmm…”, as he ran away from me.
Sometimes I thank God for his short attention 🙂

I hope you all enjoyed this. Have a wonderful rest of your day!

The right font is an important ingredient for successful cover design. It can also be one of the more challenging elements to perfect.

What to look for

  • The cover text should fit the genre or subject matter.
  • It should look like the font belongs on the cover.
  • The font should inspire interest in the book.
  • It shouldn’t be a distraction.
  • The text should be easy to read. Any uncommon words should be immediately clear.
  • Key words should stand out in the thumbnail.
  • Pixelation, stray marks, blurriness, and other issues will detract from the cover.
  • Too many different fonts on the cover is a problem. Two different fonts must work well together.

Examples

We’ll look at a movie and t.v. show. Although these aren’t books, the font is equally important—more so, if you count the money invested.

Check out the font for Disney’s Frozen: movies.disney.com/frozen. It fits the content…

Live to Write - Write to Live

The New Yorker not returning your calls? Likewise The Paris Review? Don’t despair; New Hampshire Pulp Fiction might just be your ticket to fame if not fortune. Okay, when it comes to fame, make that at least a few, local minutes of it.

The brainchild of Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire Magazine and George Geers, owner of Plaidswede Publishing, three volumes of NH Pulp Fiction have already been published.
