A few hours ago I was thinking about books and artwork, on a lark I wrote a quick Facebook post asking if anyone had any requests or ideas for book art.

For things of this nature, I typically favor Print On Demand. It is more expensive, but since I don't really have room for inventory or time for shipping, it is the best match for me. The issue is that for a full size, full color poster on good paper, POD costs dozens of times what an offset printing costs. S

It's November! Whats this years NaNoWriMo goal?!
I'm actually trying something new! The working title is either "Shades of Shadow" or "Shards of Shadow" depending on what file I look at. It's an urban fantasy. Modern setting.
