In Dreams

my first book is almost half way edited! just waiting on my editor (whom i love and adore.. and harrass on a daily basis) for more pages. as soon as she's done- i'll be done!

and then i'll have a release date!

i'm working on the cover... it will look something like this... would love and appreciate your thoughts! if you were browsing for books and you saw this cover, would it make you stop and want to read what the book was about???

i am also working on adding playlists to my website for each book. so now there won't just be a list of song titles and artists, but a soundtrack you can click and listen too. it's hard because a lot of my songs aren't on the site i'm working with. any recommendations for good music playlist sites? free? :)


last, but not least, i'm almost finished with my book trailer! i'm stuck though because i want like a live, moveable background. you know, like what amanda hocking has on hers- (go here ) so if you know where i can find backgrounds like that? or maybe it's on the computer program she used to make hers? i'm clueless. and using windows live movie maker for mine.




that's your update! hope to have the book trailer up by monday at the latest! and a release date SOON!!!!

do you "like" my author page on facebook?

I love the cover, Jenn! And for your playlist, have you tried Playlist.com? They don't have a huge selection, but they have a lot to choose from.

I love the cover! One thing I would change is the white text for "In Dreams" because it's kind of hard to read... that may or may not help but I thought I'd offer my 2 cents. Can't wait to read your book girl!

Like.
But what if you added two people on the bench?
Y'know, not what they actually look like, but a dark silhouette because the sun is setting on them?
They're backs are to us and they're leaning into each other.
Might be neat.

Or...you could show a real people type photo of Katherine, leaning on a silhouette guy's shoulder (the dream guy). If that even makes sense: 'real people photo' meaning kind of in color, but still having the sun set on her.

Just my .02 cents (or more) worth. :)

I will defintely read this book! :)

luv2 read.. you are SOOOO freaking right on with the couple... i LOVE it! i think i tried to find a couple on a bench before and i never liked the bench.. or the beach.. etc... i love the idea of a girl with her head on a guys shoulder. LOVE!

thank you!! :)

With your photography skills, maybe you can volunteer some people you know to be the people on the bench? :)

Just a thought.... :)
