Crystal M Romero (@Crstl_M_Romero) commissions South Bay Chihuahua Meetup's official logo for t-shirts for charity.

I started working with Crystal and her writing a few years ago (see her latest book info below). But our latest project together was a different sort of 'labor of love' project ... A logo for her favorite group, South Bay Chihuahua Meetup

black on light colors
white on dark colors

The South Bay Chihuahua Meetup is "a small, informal group of Chi-owners who gather once a month at a dog park.; no one person in charge, no officials. Just chi-owners who like to get their pups together for a play date." 


South Bay Chihuahua Meetup wanted a way to raise awareness and funds to help dogs in need of rescue. So ... I drew and designed a logo that would work on both light and dark t-shirts, which are now available on Teespring. Just follow the t-shirts to pick your favorite color choices. Better, still? Pick every color ... It's for a great cause!




They have both a Meetup page and a Facebook page. Their current charity focus is on Grateful Dogs, a registered 501-(c) (3) non-profit organization (TIN 94-3251570), and though located in San Francisco, they go all over the Bay Area and rescue dogs from high kill shelters.


South Bay Chihuahua Meetup members can now share in the community while donating to this very worthy charity. 100% of the sales for their group tee shirts will go to Grateful Dogs rescue.

If you'd like more info, get in touch with Crystal on twitter @Crstl_M_Romero or Corina, the group's founder, at the Meetup page or Facebook page.

And while you're at it, follow Crystal and ask her how to buy a signed copy of her book, Valley of the Dead. 😲







Onto wrapping up the next book :-D
Until next time ...

Princess Breeze ~ cover art and design for Beverly Stowe McClure (@beverlymcclure) and 4RV Publishing (@4RV)



I'm excited to announce, the cover art & design for Princess Breeze (the sequel to Just Breeze, written by Beverly Stowe McClure), is ready for show

I can't say enough about how much I enjoy every project I do for one of Beverly's books. She is such an amazing storyteller. Combine that with 4RV Publishing's high emphasis on good writing and rigorous editing (which is woefully lacking even with the big houses these days), and you have an award-winning combination.

~


Just Breeze

Eighth grade starts out the same as every other year for Breeze Brannigan. She’s still the tallest student, boy or girl, in her class, wears shoes that would fit an elephant, and her smile reveals dazzling braces that blind everyone within ten feet.

Then she meets Cam, the new boy in school who speaks with an accent and must be from another planet, for none of the earthling boys she knows are so polite. He also has a secret, a secret that could mean life or death for Cam and his mother and that Breeze must help him keep.




Princess Breeze

For months, Breeze Brannigan has heard nothing from Cam, the prince she met at school and who disappeared one night without telling her goodbye. The night she graduates from middle school, however, he contacts her and invites her to visit Isla del Fuego, his home. Who could refuse such an invitation? 


Breeze, along with her whole family and best friends, Amy and Allison, soon sail to the island, where she and Cam renew their friendship. But, danger lurks; a legend comes to life; Breeze finds herself in the middle of a battle that can have only one winner.


~

Several of Beverly's previous books have won prestigious awards, a couple of which 4RV has had the honor of publishing...

The Hungry Monster Book Review: Interviews D. Hart St. Martin (@hartstm) about her Lisen of Solsta trilogy ...


I like sharing positive reviews and interviews that my authors tell me about. I especially like it when the share includes compliments on my work. 😁

Before I send you over to The Hungry Monster Book Review site to check out the latest interview, Painful Sacrifice (May 6th), with D. Hart St. Martin (@hartstm) about her Lisen of Solsta trilogy, I thought I'd share my favorite part of that interview and some of my personal experience with D. and the series.



The cover art for your three books are very well done. What decisions went into the art direction for the covers?

My cover artist, Aidana WillowRaven of WillowRaven Illustration and Design, is brilliant, and she definitely knows her stuff.

Told you I had a favorite part. 😊


I've really enjoyed getting to know Lisen, as well as D., as I've worked on the series. She's such an interesting character. Though it may not be too easily noticeable on the cover (we had to modify our initial idea to ensure the cover wasn't risky), Lisen has some amazing physical attributes that make her unique. You really have to check out the world of Solsta.

Don't forget to check out the wonderful interview with D. at The Hungry Monster Book Review and the individual reviews for each book:   Fractured ... Tainted ... Blooded ... Protector of Thristas ... and her previous 'The Darkness in the Light' (Mar 5th) and  'It's Do or Die' (Apr 30th) interviews.


Be sure to follow D. Hart St. Martin online to stay updated. 😊













Onto wrapping up the next book :-D
Until next time ...
