Book Design

Those of you who have been following this blog for some time know that I’m, more or less, a one man operation. I write the books/stories, I do the interior formatting for both e-books (Kindle, Smashwords) and print books, I design the covers, and stuff like that.

Sometimes I did these kind of things for other writers too. Continue reading


More art prints…

roxana_1I kind of convinced this friend of mine to try to sell some more prints of drawings she did a while ago. Drawings I, honestly, find to be fascinating. You can order any of these two new art prints hereThey cost only $24.99 each, International shipping included.roxana_2

Also, you can buy a “bundle” of all five art prints for only $60 here.

Not much else to say. You can’t select the print you want from the shop page. You order the $24.99 Art print, then I e-mail you and ask you which print you want and to confirm your shipping address. Prints will ship within 2-3 business days and arrive at your location (worldwide) in around 5-7 business days.

irevuo needs your help

logo_bigToday I spent almost all day searching the web for all kinds of graphic artists and illustrators and so on. And I e-mailed them and asked them if they’d like for their works to be featured on irevuo. It might sound boring, but it was far from boring.

Actually I got to see a lot of cool stuff, and it simply got me wondering why so much talent goes unseen. You know, when you see a beautiful work of art and you just want to tell everyone about it, because you feel it’s so good it deserves to be seen by everyone. Experienced, felt by everyone.

Sadly, this isn’t a battle I can fight on my own. I need your help. Together we can turn irevuo into a really cool website, one that’s going to promote indie artists of all types. But in order to do that, there’s a goal we need to reach. We need funds to make the website look truly stunning and buy a domain. We need to buy all the software and templates and layouts required in order to create the showcase. We need to pay for ads, so everyone finds out about this cool, new website, and all the independent artists its promoting.

irevuo needs your help. I need your help. If you want to help us out, you can do so herePerks start as low as $5, and for $25 you’ll get your name in print, alongside that of many great indie artists.

irevuo Magazine

I spent the last three days reading magazines. A lot of them. Well, some of them I just analyzed in terms of layout, font type/size, etc. And some I read. I wanted to make sure that we can make a really great magazine. And, apparently, we can.

It’s not going to be easy. In case you didn’t know, I format all my books (both digital and paperback editions,) and I pretty sure I do a pretty good job. But this is different. We’re talking about a 8.5 by 11 inches, full color magazine. Lots of content, lots of pictures, info boxes, etc. So the layout is much more complex, but thank God for Adobe InDesign. Continue reading
