Artistic images for my book covers I generally leave to others. But I am now capable of putting a couple of photographs together in a decent display for certain types of books. I generally don’t go further than that, although this post by Derek Haines gives you an idea of how to put some simple badges together for your blog posts.
But today I am joining the A2Z Challenge to pay tribute to someone who really put the sparkle in the challenge – Jeremy Hawkins, who died on January 3rd. The first A2Z I did was bereft of images. The super badges for every day of the month, plus an overall badge, plus the ‘winners’, and several other graphics like the letter calendar, and the Theme Reveal badge – all those were Jeremy’s work. And he had more, much more, as I looked at his website once 🙂
Jeremy’s A to Z Images
I do have my favourites (or least liked) among the eleven or so years of A 2 Z badges. These are my five favourites:
Although I couldn’t find the one from 2012, except on my guinea pig blog!
I’d like to thank Jeremy for all of them (I think I have on the A2Z page in the past). I still use them in my A to Z Reading Challenge page, replacing the letters with covers as I go.
With sympathy and very best wishes to his family and friends.
IWSG Question of the Month
This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post, in which we share our successes and failures as writers, our insecurities, in fact. Anyone can join in, just sign up at the IWSG Sign-up page, write a blog post on the first Wednesday of the month, and go back to that sign up page to link with everyone else–or a goodly sample. Our host is Alex J Cavanaugh, and his co-hosts for the month are:
and this month’s question is…
Is there someone who supported or influenced you that perhaps isn’t around anymore? Anyone you miss?
Yes. Zanzibar’s Rings is dedicated to some of them.
And in case you don’t know…
Zanzibar’s Rings will be published on 22nd February
