  • How to Get a Cheap Book Cover on Feb. 25, 2012

    I downloaded this book to help me design the cover for my novel, A Military Republic. The book has excellent advice about licensing photos, websites for buying photos and above all an invaluable guide to using gimp for designing the cover. I definitely recommend this to cover designing beginners.
  • Beloved to Hamlet: If Ophelia Had Lived on May 14, 2012

    This is a beautiful adventure into Shakespeare's world. For years the question of what would have happened if Ophilia lived has haunted me and I was thankful when I first saw the title of the story on Izolda Trakhtenberg's website. The language used in the story is both true to Shakespeare in its beauty and its terminology and not as hard on the modern reader.I would love to know what will happen next and I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
