I want to help you to think creatively. I want you to push yourselves to think of new and exciting ways of promoting and displaying your work.
I'll show you how to use colour, sound and images to enhance your book.
I'll help you to find sites you need and pass on tips that I've learned along way.
At end of it all, I hope that you will have a book that will grab people's attention.
As an example, I'd like you to look at my own website.
This is part of a collection of pages that I set up to promote my own novel, 'St Brodag's Isle'. Let page load and see what happens.
I've included music to give page a Celtic feel. I actually wrote music myself and I'll tell you later how to download programme to achieve this. I tried to write a piece that would evoke in mind of listener 'Riverdance' music. I'll leave it up to you to decide if I achieved that or failed!
I've also picked on a recurring motif within my novel, kittiwake, and highlighted it here. A kittiwake is a small gull-like bird that nests on steep sea cliffs. I found this little animation on internet. I'll give you links to such sites later.
I'm combining words, pictures and sounds on this web page.
Words Pictures Sounds
That's sort of combination I'd like you to try soon. As writers, we're adept at handling words. It's time for us to broaden our horizons.
