Nice to be able to do both! On the writing side, I’d challenged myself to come up with a vampire story, but it had to have a new twist, something unique that I hadn’t seen done before, rather than simply retelling Stoker’s tale one more time.
I have a solid first draft, it goes to a place I’ve never seen visited before, and has a nice (hopefully unpredictable) twist to it. I’ll continue working with that when I’m not BURIED at work! Given that my poor wife is stuck working this weekend, I’ll have plenty of time to work on this story (and get some progress done on the book too, I hope!)
On the fun side, I was looking at my cover design for “What If?”, my collection of short stories and it occurred to me that would be a great template to build a business card design from, so it was Photoshop Play Time in the dungeon!
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself! The slightly over sized black canvas provides a “safe zone” for the trim down to standard 3.5 by 2 inch card size, as well as a backdrop for the highly distressed background. The vintage typewriter says it all, insofar as what a business card for G.A. Miller should represent.
Damn…lunch is just about over, back to the salt mines for me.
