I {heart} Romance...

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...

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 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!

Fantastical Cover Design...

Rhiannon Paille's forthcoming novel, FLAME OF SURRENDER.

A little bit about the book:

The boy who follows death meets the girl who could cause the apocalypse.

Krishani thinks he’s doomed until he meets Kaliel, the one girl on the island of Avristar who isn’t afraid of him. She’s unlike the other girls, she swims with merfolk, talks to trees and blooms flowers with her touch. What he doesn’t know is that she’s a flame, one of nine individually hand crafted weapons, hidden in the body of a seemingly harmless girl.

Nobody has fallen in love with a flame until now. She becomes Krishani’s refuge from the dreams of death and the weather abilities he can’t control. Striking down thousand year old trees with lightning isn’t something he tries to do, it just happens. When the Ferryman dies, Krishani knows that he’s the next and that a lifetime of following death is his destiny.

And Kaliel can’t come with him. The Valtanyana are hunting the flames, the safest place for her is Avristar. Krishani can’t bear to leave her, and one innocent mistake grants the Valtanyana access to their mystical island. They’re coming for Kaliel, and they won’t stop until every last living creature on Avristar is dead. She has to choose, hide, face them, or awaken the flame and potentially destroy herself.
