Create Your Own Ebook Cover, Step By Step, With Pictures

Page Setup PPFair warning, you are about to get advice on creating your cover from a man with all the artistic talent of a slug. Indeed, so small are my gifts in this area that several slugs have written in to complain that my statement is demeaning to their creative abilities. It also has to be said you’re going to be taking PowerPoint advice from a man who is not particularly adept with PowerPoint, especially its Windows variant.

Inserted Picture PPSo why am I doing this exactly? Because I can, of course, and because I want to make a point; that even a man with my stunning lack of skill can create an acceptable ebook cover in a few minutes with a minimum of fuss. And if I can, then you can too. I am going to use the cover I create here for the ebook version of my sword and sorcery short story Henchmen so I’ll be putting my money where my mouth is too.

Why PowerPoint — why not Photoshop or the GIMP or any one of a dozen much more powerful programs designed to manipulate images? Because the last time I seriously used Photoshop was over 15 years ago and I can’t be bothered learning how to use it again. Also it costs hundreds of quid.Orc With Name Added pp GIMP but I have not done so yet. So the chances of me being able to write a sensible post showing you how to use such an image editor are precisely nil. On the other hand, I do know how to make PowerPoint do this thing and PowerPoint is something that most of us are able to get our hands on relatively cheaply. It is a basic part of Microsoft’s Office Suite. That being the case, much more powerful programs are overkill.

If you already know how to use an image editor, go do so with my blessing. If you know how to use Photoshop or The Gimp you probably don’t need me to tell you how to create your own cover. This post is for the benefit of those who have absolutely no familiarity with the process.

I've commandeered my daughter's recently, and

Am baking up a storm. I started by making Hamburger buns, which someone asked me to post the recipe for yesterday, and I did. they are terrific. Then, last week I just went to the library and took out a book on baking bread with a bread machine. It pretty much covers all the types of bread machines. But, if you have the brand and the model number, just about every manufacturer nowadays has their manuals online. Check it out. anyway, bread machines are the bomb!

Conservatives have better family lives than libs

‘Conservatives Work Harder, Feel Happier, Have Closer Families, Take Fewer Drugs, Give More Generously, Value Honesty More, Are Less Materialistic and Envious, Whine Less...and Even Hug Their Children More Than Liberals.” Or so the subtitle of Peter Schweizer’s new book, Makers and Takers, declares. In an interview with National Review Online editor Kathryn Lopez, Schweizer, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, talks a little about what evidence he has for such contentions.
Listen to Schweizer tomorrow when John J. Miller goes “Between the Covers,” in NRO’s twice-weekly audio author feature

Oh, I didn't bother to check.

It's an existing word, not a new word. As a matter of fact, there were two, and I can't remember which I sent.
It might have been the word "tule." A tule is a kind of reed, but I was proposing that they include the phrase, which I think is western, "out in the tules." I happen to know the guy who covers the OED in the U.S. so I sent him a letter. His initial reaction was that my citations were online, which they weren't crazy about, but when I argued my point, then he said they'd consider it.
