We Need YOUR Help! (UPDATE: WE WON!!!)

 UPDATE: We won the contest!!! Thank you everyone for your votes and support!

As many of you know, I have a love for photography. Unfortunately, I have no camera to support my little hobby. This is where you come in.

I have entered my daughter's picture in a photo contest. Grand Prize: a $500 gift certificate and a CANON REBEL T1i DSLR!!! 

Oooh I drool just thinking about it. 

It just so happens that my little bug's photo is a finalist in the contest!

I took this with a borrowed camera from a friend of mine. I would LOVE to be able to take photos like this on a regular basis.
So, I am enlisting your help. The contest is fully voter based from here on out, so the more votes we get, the better! You can vote once a day, every day, until March 26th.

I truly appreciate your support! 

Help me make my blog a better place with better photos for YOU!

Meet the Author

I hope some of you took the chance to purchase J.S. Laurenz's historical romance  To Conquer the Heart of a King.

If you're looking for more information on the book,
the author (also known as Renate Wildermuth) had a radio interview about it.

Listen, and enjoy!

For Your Reading Pleasure

After working on the cover for Amanda Brice's book, Codename: Dancer, I was lucky to land another design gig!

I was approached by author J. S Laurenz to put together a book cover for another self-published novel. Who likes historical fiction and romance?

*raises hand* ME!
If you find yourself raising your hand too, then be sure to check out this exciting new book!

 Turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself  ;)

Here's a blurb about the book from the author.

A woman who knows the future but not her own past.  The son of a king who must fight for his crown.  They will come together to get what they each desire.  Their pact will turn to passion…but will they realize it before intrigue tears them apart? 
Before Lukas of Falkenberg returns to the Black Forest to take the throne from his dying father, he pays a visit to the nameless and sightless Seer at the Cloister of Mariendorf.  He takes her captive to use her intuition to establish his reign.  She willingly trades the punishing confines of the cloister for a palace prison in the hope of gaining her ultimate freedom.  Although blind, she can see what the future king cannot—the needs of his subjects.  She will win them over, but can she conquer the heart of a king before his half-brother Magnus separates them in a plot even she cannot foresee?

Now, at 99 cents per copy, you CAN'T pass up finding out what happens! Purchase your own copy for your PC, Mac, Kindle, Iphone, or Ipad on
