I've used Canva to create banners for Broken Pieces
And for Getting There
And my favorite Canva production today?
My new logo!
Isn't it gorgeous?
Now, for the story.
My beautiful hubby created the old one for me.
At the time, I had no idea what I truly wanted. I like frogs and writing. So, book with a frog and my initials? Well, he did the best he could with the little I gave him. It's not bad. It's just not what I wanted. It was also when I was with a different publisher and in the very beginning of my writing career. I just needed a logo, any logo.
Well, today I was sitting at home on a snow day, and I thought about it. I could do my own logo. I checked to see if that's an option on Canva, and it is. They have the pieces. You put them together. It's all mostly free except for the heart that cost a dollar. (I had to have the heart.)
Considering that I tried getting a new logo made, and they were all $100 or more? No way could I afford that right now. I have two kids and need to save money for what they require as well as the house hubby says he wants someday. So money? Definitely an object!
I love the new logo. The Pride colors, the symbols, and my initials. Bright, bold, and still simple. It's gorgeous and a true representation of me as a writer of m/m romance. It makes me happy just looking at it. Hubby likes it, too. Hm. Tattoo? I'll have to give it some thought.
Now, I'm not trying to hawk Canva. I'm just trying to tell you what's working for me in this area. I've even used Canva for making Girl Scout Cookie ads to post online. I'm telling you. Try it.

Song of the Siren
A broken soldier, a siren, and a pastor. Sounds like an intro to a bad joke, but it’s the Christmas story of how a siren’s song can heal.

I'm currently working on the edits for the sequel to Song of the Siren. The title is The Guardian's Prize, and it's Kamau's brother Batair whose arrived in Charleston, South Carolina. He's here for his mate, and he has no idea what's waiting for him. His mate doesn't want him, doesn't want anyone. And, Batair's mate, Anoki, has a few surprises of his own.
I'm writing two anthology pieces, one for Extasy Books Spring Fever and the other for their summer one. The Spring Fever title is Wink, and I'm playing with a monster that will require a little more research.
Then, there's the summer anthology piece which will include the circus. I think I'm going to have to see The Greatest Showman to really help that come to life. Okay, maybe I'm just making excuses, but Hugh Jackman? Come on. Who wouldn't want to see him? Have you seen the trailers? That movie is going to rock. I'm so there this weekend!
As for my random tidbit, my little one is selling Girl Scout Cookies. The Girl Scout Troop leader says the quota for each girl is 250 boxes. Swear, she actually used the work quota. I had no idea how much of a business Girl Scouts is, but my little one loves it. That means Mommy is selling those cookies.
When I reach said quota, I am done. That mermaid blanket she wants? I'll order it from Amazon.
