A New Type of Template Design: Meet Hills! You can dress her up!

7 comments
My design work has changed over the last few years that I have been doing this, but what I've noticed is that a lot of you like to change up your designs, either seasonally or just on a whim. To purchase a custom design each time can get rather expensive so, to battle this, I've thought up a rather unique way of handling this.
I'm going to whip up an avatar and you will be able to dress her up in different templates throughout the year. Same avatar, same look --- just new clothes, or new holiday themes to go with the avatar. So, your blog will retain continuity throughout the year, but you'll be able to keep things changing and fresh, without the price of a complete blog design.
The first avatar is a cute blond girl, that I've nick named Hill's. Currently Hill's has one main template (meaning it comes included with graphics geared specifically for a book blog), two "dress-up" templates and a Christmas and New Year's look. You can view the templates live and purhcase the files below.
Features:
  • All templates are able to be modifed via the Blogger template Designer.
  • Seasonal designs will be published during their respective holidays and can actually be requested
  • Expected designs to come: Mardi Gras, Easter, Summer, Fourth of July,
If you have any problems with this design please email me at parajunkee at cox dot net

Meet the Book Nympho....thebooknympho.blogspot.com

Directions: I want a dark & sexy feel to the blog, since most of the books I read have both. But I'm ok with a humor element as well. So if you want to add a campy vampire element I'm cool with that.
Genres I read:
Paranormal Romance | Urban Fantasy | Young Adult (paranormal themed) |
Erotic Romance (paranormal &"normal")



The following images are copyrighted by The Book Nympho and are not for general use. They are for display purposes, please do not steal.





Client Feedback:

HOLY FREAKING COW!!! I love it. - The Book Nympho

Keeping it Simple...From the TBR Pile

Design specs: 

"clean and uncluttered"

We like our basic color scheme, the light bluish/aqua.  We don't want anything too cluttered.  We'd like something pretty and some clean lines, nothing really cartoony looking...and something building off our blog title....a pile of books or something...

Disenchanted Cover Design

5 comments

Some loves are meant to be…others are cursed.

Elizabeth Blackburn doesn’t believe in fate or the supernatural until she moves into Cliffside Manor and begins having nightmares about a woman who was murdered in the house.

Determined to unlock secrets that have remained hidden for centuries, Elizabeth is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away, not to mention, her uncontrollable attraction to the former owner, Dorian Knight.

As the history of the Knight family curse begins to unravel, tensions heighten and old secrets turn deadly. Even though Dorian wants nothing to do with Elizabeth and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go...even if it kills her.

I {heart} Romance...

2 comments
Author, Macy Beckett told me about the books that she has written and it was almost instant inspiration. Especially after she showed me a few example of the sites she likes and they were just so clean and pretty...I knew I had to step up the bar and out of my usual dark comfort zone. Chick lit. I love a challenge...


What Macy had to say about the design:


...Just want to thank you again. It was a pleasure working with you, and I appreciate not only your skill, but your patience as well. You responded to all my questions in a flash and went above and beyond. The compliments keep rolling in, and I'm so thrilled with my site!

She's Bona Fide...

4 comments
Welcoming in a new design to the book blogger world today. Bona Fide Reflections has been given a face lift. Directions given included an avatar update, mature and a bit sexy, but not overly in-your-face, a purple color scheme, to expand on the the thought-bubble idea and embellishments to give it a softer look.


Clients thoughts after the blog went live:

"I love the avatar a lot, I love the colors scheme, I love the romantic thougts, I love the reflection of the word reflections, the sparse plant life since I won't have much time to keep them watered, hehehe..."

Back by Popular Demand

About two years a go I created a few FREE templates for your book blogging pleasure. Out of those four there was obviously a favorite. The BOOK MAXIMA. I've seen it chopped up, color changed...you name it. Seems the craze is over, mostly because it doesn't work in NEW BLOGGER. So, well here it is...made for NEW BLOGGER. Download the ZIP file of the XML file here. 

This if FREE for your use. Have fun with it. Leave a link in the comments if you use it so I can see how you pimped it out.

This is what it looks like!
