Hugh's Views & News

I am delighted to welcome and introduce a very special guest this month. Sally Cronin is one of the jewels in the blogging crown that exists here on, what I like to call, Planet Blog.

Writer, Author and Blogger, Sally Cronin Writer, Author and Blogger, Sally Cronin

I was first made aware of Sally and her blog when she reblogged my post ‘Forget About The Oscars, Welcome To The Mildreds!’  By reblogging that post she introduced me to her blogging community and since then has been an incredible supporter of my blog.  She shares and promotes other bloggers’, writers’ and authors’ work and is always on hand to offer support to anyone regarding writing and publishing.

Those of you that already know Sally will have heard of her recent new book release, Tales From The Garden.

Dan Alatorre - AUTHOR

sandy 3 Author Patrick Jones

We have a lot of terrific authors that follow the blog. Patrick Jones is not only a great friend of the blog but a pretty prolific author, and this weekend he’s got a lot going on.

Sure, it’s Halloween for him like everybody else, but he’s running some sales on his books. The details are below, but take a moment to learn a little more about this insightful man – a kind of  modern day Indiana Jones in his own right – as he answers a few questions with me.



Dan: What is the working title of your next book?

When I have a little time to spare I like to play with the images I make using the various software I have on my devices, so I thought I’d share some of them with you.

For example:

What many people think an author’s life is like…

Writing 01

But why stop there?

I found a nice Billboard image,

converted it into a PNG format,

deleted whatever picture was there

to leave a nice transparent layer:

Billboard 01 PNG Original

Then combined the two to make it more interesting:

Another example:

Billboard 01 Multi Layer

But I thought it might be nice to make it appear in an Art Gallery 😀

Here are more:

Back to scenes:

busso-forest-beach Combo 01

I tried to add a bit more interest using sketches:

But why stick with Billboards and Photos?

So I put some onto computer screens 😀

your book promo cover images

and some Spoof Book Covers I made

Depending on how long you’ve been in the book/author publicity game you will either have a good sized list of helpful publicity sites (that don’t cost an arm and a leg) or a very small one. Regardless of the length of your current list one of the best blogs I’ve discovered online that helps promote writers is The Story Reading Ape (Chris).
