Gosh all fish-hooks, I hear you cry, what is she garbling now?
Hang on, sweet little baby angels; I have some good’uns for you this week.
The best news is, Marta Pelrine-Bacon has a new shop, this one at ArtPal. Delicious, delightful, haunting, and it includes her ornaments!
Now, maybe you love the convenience of one-stop shopping at Amazon. No judgment. But my husband foams at the mouth, if I buy anything from them. So I was delighted to be recommended this page of Amazon Alternatives. I was even more delighted that among them is your public library. Well, not yours, specifically, but the generic “your”.
At InConjunction this year, one of my fellow panelists recommended self-published authors to get covers at the aptly named SelfPubBookCovers. Even if you aren’t in the market for a book cover, browsing their samples is a
trip treat. (Sorry. My ill-spent youth popped up out of nowhere. I’ll be down in a minute.)
I recently had a comment on my Recipals page from Amna at KooKingK, so I followed her home and enjoyed her site very much. It’s recipes from India and Pakistan. It’s everything from stuffed eggplant to home-made Egg McMuffins! Many videos. Much like.
Now, hang onto your hats. If you haven’t got a hat, get a handkerchief, a scarf, a sheet of scrap paper, or a cabbage leaf, cover your head with it, and hang onto it. Meeka sent me to this site, and I’m sending you because WOAH! Suzanne Jongmans makes photographs that look like Renaissance portraits, dressing her people in discarded packing material and other “trash”. Click on the portrait on the landing page to enter a world of wonder. I am not kidding.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Pick a book cover at SelfPubBookCovers and sketch out a story based on it. Bonus points, if the story twists the narrative the cover suggests.
