26989 I've been on here for a little while but I figured I should formally introduce myself!

I'm Scarlett Archer (by pen name), a writer and a graphic designer. I write fiction, and at the moment I'm working on chic lit, literary, and speculative fiction. I've been writing for about sixteen years now. My site for my writing life is over at

But my first published book is 1001 First Lines, which is a collection of first lines over fifteen different genres, of the best and the worst of the literature field.

I've combined my love of literature and design and I design book covers for self-published authors:

26989 Awesome James! I too run a blog to post articles on book cover design:

I've covered topics like:
Copyright for your book cover
What if I don't like my book cover?
5 Things that shouldn't be on your book cover.

I don't think you can have too many resources on the subject. It's also important to help the self-pub industry recognize the importance of a good book cover! Thanks for sharing :)

26989 Well said Leigh, definitely well said. I think an addition to the latest dystopia is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (1990, but still more sort of recent than others).

I would love to see more dystopian fiction out on the shelves!
