Elements of an Eye-Catching Cover

Self-published books and books published with independent publishers need to be as eye-catching as the books other companies publish. Potential buyers who are surfing the internet make up their minds in seconds. Few seconds. That’s why your book cover needs to have these elements.

The Grandma Force by Harriet Hodgson

  • Title that conveys what the book is about. One-word titles seem to be popular these days, but that can be chancy. The title of my book, TheGrandma Force, makes people think about the word force. While you are thinking of a title, think about the sub-title.
  • Explanatory sub-title. The sub-title should leave no doubt about the theme of your book. A long sub-title is fine. In fact, a long subtitle can tell the potential what they need to know.How Grandmothers are ChangingGrandchildren, Families, and Themselves is a long sub-title and it works.
  • Font that suits the…

I have always enjoyed fantasy stories. I grew up on fairy tales and remember dreaming about worlds where animals could talk and magic existed. As a tween, I listened to my English teacher read The Hobbit with us, and I loved every adventure (minus the gigantic, hobbit-eating spiders! I swear, I developed my fear of spiders from that book. Lol!). I then discovered The Chronicles of Narnia and dreamt of a world where a kid could live a lifetime of adventure in just a split second of Earth time. I’ve lost myself in stories of dragons, vampires, were-animals, and other dimensions.

It should be no surprise that I would then want to create my own fantasy world. So, Caelagios (kay-LAH-gee-os) was born. Names are important, whether they label a person…

THE UNCERTAINTY OF LIFE … @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA @nonniejules #RRBC #RWISA #Poetry #writingcommunity #readingcommunity

A thoughtful poem to read and ponder:

Watch Nonnie Write!

This morning I opened my eyes, rolled out of bed onto the floor, and onto my knees, to pray.  This is a morning and nightly ritual in our family.  My kids are adults now, but the last thing I say to them at night is, “Say your prayers, on your knees.”

I always begin my prayer with … “Thank you, Lord, for waking me up this morning … “ but after saying those words this morning, my prayer was cut short as I jumped up and ran to my desk to pen the piece below.  (By the way, I did return to finish my morning prayer).

THE UNCERTAINTY OF LIFE

We lie down, but we don’t know if we’re going to wake up.

We leave the house, without the certainty that we’ll ever return.

We get behind the wheel of a car

Not to go far…

Just a few blocks…

A LIFE ISN’T WORTH LIVING IF NOT IN SERVICE TO OTHERS

I’d like to begin by thanking two of my fellowRWISAAuthors who were also on this tour, Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko and Linnea Tanner, who both had the courage to write about, or reference the ills of our world, that many would like to keep deeply hidden.  I speak of hatred and systemic racism.  Again, thank you both for your courage to write with such substance and I hope that it is still resonating with all who read both of your pieces.  I am honored that your words are a continual ring…

THOUGHTS ON TWO THOUSAND TWENTY

Who could have imagined the changes that last year brought to us all? Like so many, I’ve read more than one book that told a tale of life during a pandemic. Scary stuff to be sure, I never expected that fiction would describe so much of that which became reality.

New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday celebration; the end of a chapter and the start of the next one. It is the time to get over mistakes, mishaps, or misfortune that might have littered the past year, and plan for a positive future, with fresh energy and new goals. On December 31, 2020…

DANCE OF SOULS

Universal souls dance together

One takes the lead as another follows

Lifting our hands in unison, we twirl into a cloud

Floating high, the sun warming our faces

Yet we can fall as rain, our souls in free fall

Souls metamorphose into fluttering butterflies

Wrens chasing us, snapping their beaks to devour us

We abruptly shift flight and transmute into foxes

Leaping and snatching songbirds into our jaws

Our souls melding, singing, and clapping in rhythmic dance

Memories twist our fibers into rope

Past voices connect to the depths of our essence

Summoning ancestral souls, we embrace their power

Mortal and divine moving together toward light’s truth

Past, present, future merging as…
