Hi Carley,
I'm so pleased that you like my covers. Great feedback always makes me feel good. I do design and create all of my own covers, but I source images and fonts that fit with my vision and blend them into a cohesive cover. I'd love to have the tools to create everything myself. It's on my wishlist. My dream as a kid was to be a graphic designer.
Thanks for taking the time to ask :)(less)

Thanks for such positive feedback. It's nice to know that someone likes them. I've always been interested in graphic design, so when it comes to my book covers I love creating them. I just use a generic software which I've taught myself to use over the past few years. It's all a matter of having a clear vision and giving the design plenty of depth. In the redesign of my Time Square covers I wanted the main text to have a vintage feel to compliment the cogs of time. After some research and a bit of trial and error, I was very happy with the final distressed metal finish.(less)

Today was a day that I’ve been working towards for the past two and a half years. Subway Palliatopia has been such a long project and there were many times that I wondered if it would ever see the light of day. But, as I’ve said many times … success is born from perseverance. Finally, …

Subway | Palliatopia by S.W. Lothian
“Isolation was the final blow. Scattering their unity like a body chopped into seven. Life cannot prevail in each piece; it can only survive as one. With every new grenade that the Institute lobbed, the body of hope died a little bit more.”

Thanks for your kind encouragement CD. I hope she enjoys the book. It's full of plenty of adventure. Quest Two should be out in June sometime.
Great idea to encourage her to do reviews. I follow a blog that is done by a kid who is about 11. In case you are interested in showing your daughter here is the link .... http://thiskidreviewsbooks.com/

C.D. Sweitzer It's great that you're taking this opportunity to write children's fiction--I think at some point I'd like to take a break from adult fiction and write a few adventure stories. I'm planning to get Golden Scarab for my daughter to read over summer break, and have her practice writing a review (why not have kids write reviews in their own words?). Best of luck, and have fun with this (if nothing else, it's a nice bit of legacy to leave for kids, grandkids, etc.).
