While I'm taking a few days off from my fantasy worlds I've decided to work on the BRAND NEW cover for Lily's book when it's made into a novel and wowee is it fun...
I've moved up in the world and downloaded GIMP - photo editing programme similar to Photoshop but free *woowoo* sadly, it's no less complicated. I have about 6 tabs open on Safari at the moment with tutorials *facepalm*
I'm not gonna lie to my lovely readers, it's bloody hard!!! Why can't it be simple? Of course I could be lazy and pay someone... But I'm too cheap for that ;) no seriously, some people charge like £75.... Rip off for self publishing if you ask me... Especially as my books are free! So I'm going it alone... But if anyone can design covers and fancies doing me one while I get used to the ridiculously complicated GIMP I won't say no ;)
Maybe I should try and find a graphic design course online... Or keep reading the tutorials and not give up when they get complicated.. Hmmm that's probably a good idea!
Anyway, I'm going to go back to my computer and hunker down with this trial cover.
If anyone has any ideas they'd like to pose.. Or even better make me a cover just leave a comment ;)
