Still half under construction, but you should be able to see a cool slideshow of my bookcover works!

All this month and the next!

This blog is to reach out to the independent authors, self-published authors and ebook houses in need of low cost book cover, promotional banners and buttons design.
I design professional quality artwork for books, as well as for your websites. Design projects include those for maps (as used in fantasy novels), artistic character sketches, slides for book trailers, book covers, buttons, promotional banners, beautiful wallpapers based on your book etc.

Indie Authors! Look over here!

There's a bit of ranting in the beginning but I'm going to get to the actual stuff VERY SOON.


THE RANT
Ah. Guess what time it is- it's STUDY HOLIDAYS again! Which means that it's VACATION. Really, who studies during study holidays? Me and my friends are utilizing it to the maximum for fun! Basically, I wake up everyday to rains (guess what ,Bella Swan? It rains more here than in Forks) and find that the road in front of my house is a little more washed away than the day before. Then I start writing, or reading. Then I sleep. I'm worse than Sid the Sloth right now. At least he does something in the time he's awake. I'm just walking in some kind of happy little daze everyday, the whole day. 


THE ACTUAL STUFF
An Art Website of mine is coming up soon- and you know what, authors? I will be doing book covers and promotional images for FREE for the first month. Which means all you Indie authors who need a book cover or a promo image, buttons or template designs or just little little stuff to promote your awesome books, can soon get these stuff for free!!!!!
This website will probably be up this week or the next, so stay tuned!
The basic purpose here is to help out independent or self-published authors. I've seen some awesome books with terrible covers, and most Indie publishing houses don't have really good cover-designers. Even if they do, they need to be paid money, sometimes unfair amounts for the work they do.
So stay tuned guys, and I'll update you all soon!

Back!

Hi, followers and blogosphere!
Been a long while since I put something up here, and I apologize. I've been busy with exams and projects and other stuff...finally free! (Not really, still have more exams coming...but only next month) I'm not ready to review yet- I did read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffeneger, The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kitteredge, 1222 by Anne Holt and a very unhealthy large dose of Stephen King but I'm not in a reviewing mood, and anyway, my already typed reviews are all on my phone, which is not working right now.
I'm sort of having an electronics crisis with all my electronic appliances dying around me. Thank you, new followers- for following me! Yayy!



Oh. I thought I'd make a list of things done during this interval so here they are:
1) Passed all my exams (except maybe Engineering Graphics, I have a doubt there) :0




2) Successfully went on a road trip across Kerala (my home state in India), saw countless amazing temples and was inspired to write by 
the pure beauty of the culture.


Vishu Kani
3) Celebrated Vishu- the Kerala New Year- with family, and loved every moment of it. (Vishu is so well-loved because every adult gives us some money on the day, and makes us rich by the end of the day)

4) Celebrated India's World Cup win with a party! :)

5) Bought a new rather fluffy but very cute hat.



6) Bought Audrey Niffeneger's Her Fearful Symmetry, read it and loved it!

7) Plotted my next novel and decided to get help for curing my irrational dislike for typing out stories on the keyboard.


8) Saw Santosh Sivan's masterpiece movie Urumi, and LOVED it!




9) Bust my phone. Wondering now if it's still possible to somehow fix my phone. 


10) Searched for  a really good fantasy read. Was not rewarded.
