Fun with Photography!!

Since I have a knack for running during the warm months, I tend to take random pictures of things I find interesting or just plain cool looking. So, here are a few I had fun editing. I have a thing for eerie scenarios!

Enjoy!!

My Photography

Outside of writing my life way and telling whatever crazy story is on my mind, I also enjoy taking random pictures. Most of the time I snap a pic of something I find neat when I’m out on my run in the evenings or if I see something interesting when we go places. I’m also one of those people that likes changing the style of the photo: the color or the saturation and brightness. I took a couple recently when I was walking through the cemetery and thought they turned out pretty neat. I figured I’d share some of my random photography today. I’m not a professional and I never plan on being one, but it is fun snapping a photo of things that don’t involve a selfie.

Cover Idea

Here’s the cover I just created for my stalker novel, Crazy For Love. I’ll explain why I chose this image. One of the main character’s, Sidney, she has red hair and it’s one thing that gets noticed a bit in the book. I saw this picture and thought it worked pretty good. I’m open for opinions if anyone thinks otherwise.

Cover Idea

Nightmares

They follow you
Like bats in the night
You can’t outrun them
You can never hide
They’ll be there waiting
Always waiting
For you to fall asleep
For your mind to finally be theirs
You can fight it all you want
Force your eyes to never close
Soon you’ll give in
And they’ll be there
They’ll play with you
Showing what you never want to see
Saying what you never want to hear
Until you beg for it to stop
Pleading for it all to be over
But your mind does not listen
Your eyes do not open
They cannot hear your cries
And you’re forced to see the images
So gruesome and bizarre
Your feet try to carry you away
Try taking you from the nightmares
But they follow you
They’ll always follow you.

My Author Photo

Last weekend I went out with the hubby and found a beautiful spot in the park to take a few shots for my author photo. I know I didn’t get a professional to do this for me, but I like the idea of being the sole creator of my book from cover to cover. My husband took the photo, actually a lot of them just to give me some options. I found a few that I really like, posted them on Facebook for my friends to help out a bit, and came up with the one I thought was the best. I played around with it, cropped it, thought about doing black and white but it didn’t look right. With the Fall leaves in the background, I think it’s a good shot.
