It is the writer’s room so I must have a blatant plug for my books now and then. 🙂 This is what my foldout banner will look like and it will stand at about 6 foot. Instead of doing one for each book we decided that putting all five on would be the way to go. River of Death is the latest release. Cape is finished and is in the process of being edited and Bay is about half way through being written. Hence I don’t have artwork for the covers yet. I have bookmarks and postcards with the book covers on for those who will want to buy eBooks on the day. The blurb for each book is on the reverse and it’s printed out just like a real postcard.
This mob didn’t seem to fazed when I stopped on the way to the house to pick up some kindling. I like the one scratching himself at the back. he’s saying to the one sniffing him, ‘No, up here, it itches up here.’
This portrait hangs in an old stone house turned café at Silverton, near Broken Hill, New South Wales. I took it with the Kodak Easy Share. What attracted me to the picture? Her eyes actually. She looks neither happy nor sad and appears to have been photographed at a wedding. Her dress has faint pink tinges to it and the flowers in the basket are a giveaway. The frame is silky oak and beautifully made, especially with the artistic cut-outs. She must have been a well-loved child of wealthy parents I think. The area boomed in the late 1800’s until the silver ran out, and it would have been quite expensive to produce and frame such a large photo. The frame would have to be about 2×3 feet. I love old photos and can look at them for hours. It feels to me that a part of them is looking back at you.
That’s it for this week, I’ll endeavour to liven things up again next week. Until then, take care.
