The Man with the Hat

As the day drug through and when I felt as if my brain could no longer handle the monotony, the candles finished setting and were ready to be cut apart and trimmed for sale. I gathered the delivery list from the hand-sketched notations of my father and set to harvest the typewriter from a cabinet under the display room counter across the hall. My father never accepted anything more than his hands, but I loved the tactile sensation and the soft click-click-click the typewriter made as I transcribed.

My Bio
I've been doing graphic and web design professionally since 2003. I have received 4 bronze ADDY's and an Emmy nomination for my work. On my down time I can be found writing, enjoying time with my hubby and daughter, voice acting, or working on producing audio dramas. I have published two novels and one novella and I'm looking for representation for others.

New accolades

New accolades

This month two of my logo designs were published in iheartlogos 3 and I was notified that two out of the four pieces I entered in our local ADDYs won. I'll know the level at the awards ceremony February 16. One is my Lady From Day book design (the entire thing from cover to cover) and a set of invites I did for Antiques Roadshow when they came to Cincinnati (we had a bunch of events at work revolving around it). To note, Antiques Roadshow's marketing team (WGBH) liked them so much they used them as an example of how to do an invitation and recognize funders.

My day is made

My day is made

At 7:59PM I read a Facebook post by House N Stuff regarding a Paul Oakenfold event on Turntable.fm at 8PM. He was going to listen to original work and give his opinions. I decided to get up on deck and played Why, mixed by Esacjack and I did the vocals. It is based off one of my poems. This made my day... DJ Paul Oakenfold: this is quite nice DJ Paul Oakenfold: i like the melodic feel DJ Paul Oakenfold: i like the line, i dont like the sound of the counter line - makes it a dated feel DJ Paul Oakenfold: but i love the melody! It should sound dated, it was made in 2003 :D

If anyone is interested in reading my novels, I'll give you a free copy if you provide a review when you are finished. Honest reviews are appreciated. You can see more information on them at http://www.aprilsadowski.com. Lady From Day :thumb290436598: Also, I'm going to be releasing Out of Time in novel format shortly. I got the go-ahead from the photographer of the image I used for the audio drama.
