Competition Winners

To celebrate the release of my first book, I ran a competition on Facebook.

Congratulations to all the winners! And thank you for taking the time to enter.

The winner of the signed copy of Tomorrows Child is Kerry S from South Australia.Kerry also received an eBook copy from Smashwords.

There were three eBook winners – Belinda M from North Qld, Lynne L from Brisbane and Lacey W from North Queensland.

I promised to give away 10 ebooks so this means there are still 6 copies up for grabs.

New Cover Art

Here is the slightly tweeked cover art for my book!

Cover Image for Tomorrows Child

Updated Artwork

At first glance, you probably can’t even see the changes!

The text is now white and has been repositioned to make it easier to read.

There is also a little more mist! Especially around the model. Mist is a bit tricky because a little goes a long way. Too much looks tacky and not enough looks incomplete. I think I finally found the right balance.

I adjusted the lighting a little and smoothed the lines that still seemed a little hard when I viewed the image at 100%.  This wasn’t obvious at postage stamp size but it bugged me enough that I had to fix it.

Finally… I am happy with the cover. And just as well, because the print edition will arrive anyday and I will get to see how the cover really looks. Fingers crossed!

I would love to know what you think!

Do you judge a book by its cover? I know I do!

My First Author Interview

My first author interview up on Patti Roberts Blog ‘Paradox – The Angels Are Here’. This is really cool, but kinda odd. I have interviewed a lot of people for various articles over the years but never been interviewed myself.

You can check out the interview here http://paradox-theangelsarehere.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/interview-with-australian-author-starr.html

Patti has 10 eBook copies of Tomorrows Child to give away. Simply leave a comment on her blog and be sure to leave your email address so we can send you the code.

Thank You
