Blurbs and Covers for Upcoming Stories

I’ve been playing with blurbs and eBook covers for upcoming stories (I might still tweak them later on, who knows), and here are what I’ve created so far!

Tea & Pelicans A Short Story

About Tea & Pelicans: David moves to a quiet neighborhood where his tranquility is disrupted by an unruly acquaintance which results in his learning about plants with ulterior motives, the emotional needs of fish, and a lost pelican.

This is what I think of you

About This is What I Think of You: A detective, a vampire, and a ninja walk into a beach-side gift shop, and only one of them is there on vacation.

Into the bungalow cover

About Into The Bungalow (sequel to Nana Ana’s Secret Hideout): Anders and Eirik explore the “island bungalow” and become entangled in the magical world that the late Nana Ana left behind.


Boys with Buckets in the Surf (graphic novel/webcomic, issue No. 1): Ilya warily allows his dream plans to be revised by a handsome stranger. Together they grapple with inspiration and regret, and what it means to live life to the fullest.

[The cover isn’t ready for “Boys with Buckets” (issue No. 1) because I keep changing my mind when it comes to selecting an illustration that best represents the first issue and is also a good general introduction to the whole series. The ones I’ve drawn so far are nice, but they aren’t what I’m looking for.]

    I like the ‘This is what I think of You’ cover and blurb very much.
    Is the Tea and Pelicans image a heart? It might be more enticing if it was a question. ” How does moving to a quiet neighbourhood result in David’s discoveries of plants with ulterior motives,the emotional needs of fish and a lost pelican?” Just a thought.
    You are very good to be working now. I seem to have come to a sickening halt.

      Heehee thank you!! No matter how many times I tried to rewrite it, it came out sounding like the beginning of a joke, so eventually I just went with it. And, you nailed, it; it’s a comedy, and I have this habit of all of my stories eventually become adventures even when they’re not supposed to be (can’t help it, love those adventures).
