Latest images: Trading Cards & Headers

First up: Trading cards

(Keep in mind I don’t do the printing of these cards-you will need to take them to a professional print shop- What I do is design the images and you get a jpg file 🙂

There will be more premades to come. Some have been watermarked with Fantasia Frog Designs through the center.

What’s hot right now?

Trading cards. For most people this isn’t ground breaking news, but for some, this might be the key to advertising your book and for boosting reader interest.

FFD will be posting a few samples and examples of trading cards in the coming weeks.

First: What are Trading cards?

Cards about the size of a deck of playing cards that provide stunning artwork, a quick reference to the character of a book/series, and a bit about the publisher/author of said book.

Second: Why?

Why get trading cards? From what I’ve gathered, readers, other authors, etc… like collecting them, similar to stamps and coins. Some have been made into games like “Magic-The Gathering”.  Because it’s a “thing” we do.

Where can I find out more about the culture/activity/production of trading cards?

Well! There is plenty of info now, click here for a website dedicated to the subject from Romance Trading Cards.com.  And to know how to create a trading card game, click here.

And now… off to the image laboratory to concoct trading card imagergy!


New long headers for blogs

It came to my attention that most of my headers were suitable for blogspot blogs rather than weebly/wordpress/etc… so, here are a few wider and narrower headers for those who don’t have blogger/blogspot blogs. I’ll make more and add them here as well.  


FFD Away for a bit

A Questionable Hero Blurb:
Born of a mortal woman but raised in Hell by the demon that sired him, Abdamas is a Halfling—proof incarnate of the war between good and evil that exists in each of us. Shaebiel is an angel warrior earning her ultimate salvation in Heaven by fighting demons like Abdamas who are in search of human souls on Earth.
In the heat of a raging battle , Abdamas sees Shaebiel and wants her. When the blade of another demon aims for her, Abdamas is injured himself trying to save her. Shaebiel can’t believe a demon has rescued her from certain death and takes her questionable hero home with her to heal him.
As they both fight and surrender to their desires, the conflict around them continues, and there is Heaven and Hell to pay for their actions. Through divine intervention they are offered a gift. But Hell is nowhere near finished with either of them, and the stakes are getting higher and higher.

Can a questionable hero sacrifice enough to redeem himself in the eyes of Heaven so that he may claim the love of an angel?
