If you’ve visited the welcome page of my website, you’ve already seen that I made some new art to use for social media banners. I’m pretty happy with how each story’s art came out. I’m also excited to share that Dramamancer is live on Kindle Vella! The first seven episodes are live, and a new episode is scheduled to go up every Friday.
I liked the art I made for Dramamancer enough to try making something in the same style for Shadow-Blessed. I’m not completely satisfied with it yet, but I like the concept. I’m working with. It’s also worth mentioning that Amazon announced that the Kindle Vella platform will be launching in July. Not an exact launch date but that’s better than the vague “coming soon” that they left us with up until now. I’m pretty excited for Dramamancer to go online.
I was apparently mistaken last week when I said I’d put up my former media tiles as one of the previous Fine Art Friday posts. If you never got the chance to see them, I decided to post them this week to wish them goodbye.
I spent a good portion of this week making new media tiles to attach to all my posts. If you’ve found your way to my posts via a different social media site, you’ve seen the originals. I posted them on a previous Fine Art Friday as well. These new ones are themed for Pride month! I hope you like them.
Amazon is going to launch a new publishing platform called Kindle Vella. The stories posted on there will be serialized shorts from 600 to 5,000 words per episode. My stories for Two Page Tuesdays won’t be eligible for the new platform as one of the rules is that you can’t post episodes freely available from another site. I don’t want to make people start paying for Shadow-Blessed. It started free, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay. Still, I’m excited to try out the Kindle Vella. If you’re up to all caught up on Shadow-Blessed, you may remember Storm Ryder, the actor who revealed his magic on camera. Before I knew it, I started thinking about stories revolving around him. Kindle Vella feels like a great opportunity to explore his character and the lighter side of magic. Moon Witch Taken, Moon Witch Lost, and Shadow-Blessed all explore higher-stake situations than I want to explore in this new series, Dramamancer. Long story short, I’ve designed the “cover” art for Dramamancer this week. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
