PALMISTRY POINTERS TO POSSIBLE GLITCHES IN YOUR ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS

PREFERRED COVER ENTIRE PALM WITH ALL LINES  BLACK TEXT AND CLEARER AUTHOR FINALThis is my latest ebook, written under the pseudonym of Gennifer Dooley Hart.

I’ve long had an interest in palmistry. This is a short (20 pages with diagrams) guide from an article I had published some time ago.

PALMISTRY POINTERS

Use the Centuries-Old Art of Palmistry to Learn More About Your New Romantic Interest…Or Even Your Old One.

Planning to live with someone or make the deeper commitment of marriage with all its legal entanglements? Then gaining deeper insights into your partner’s warts and all traits would be time well-spent.

THEY SAY YOU NEVER KNOW SOMEONE TILL YOU LIVE WITH THEM, but with palmistry you can.

In these days of high divorce rates, don’t you think it’s worthwhile to discover all you can about the person who might be ‘The One’? Or even to delve deeper into the less attractive personality traits of the person with whom you intend to spend the rest of your life

Don’t you owe it to yourself and any future children to choose as wisely as possible? With palmistry, it’s impossible for those less desirable attributes to stay hidden from you behind surface charm or sweet nothings – everything is there for you to discover.

So why not learn what your partner’s hands reveal about them? You might save yourself — and any future offspring — a lot of heartache.

BARGAIN BOOK! 99 CENTS / 71P

For a short time only! Death Line, my latest Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery ebooks is going cheap! 99c / 71p.

Blurb of Death Line
Jasper Moon, internationally renowned ‘seer to the stars’, had signally failed to foresee his own future. He is found dead on his consulting-room floor, his skull crushed with a crystal ball and, all, around him, his office in chaos.
Meanwhile, Ma Rafferty does some star-gazing of her own and is sure she can predict Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty’s future –   by the simple expedient of organizing it herself. She is still engaged on her crusade to get Rafferty married off to a good Catholic girl with child-bearing hips. But Rafferty has a cunning plan to sabotage her machinations. Only trouble is, he needs Sergeant Llewellyn’s cooperation and he isn’t sure he’s going to get it.
During their murder investigations, Inspector Rafferty and Sergeant Llewellyn discover a highly incriminating video concealed in Moon’s flat, a video which, if made public, could wreck more than one life. Was the famous astrologer really a vicious sexual predator? Gradually, connections begin to emerge between Moon and others in the small Essex town of Elmhurst. But how is Rafferty to solve the case when all of his suspects have seemingly unbreakable alibis?

PREPARING DEATH LINE FOR EPUBLICATION

Death Line is the third of the out of prints in my Rafferty & Llewellyn humorous mystery series that I’m publishing as an ebook. I’ve just reread it while I was adjusting the format after its conversion from an Amstrad disc and it strikes me as more serious than the other books. Its plot is also far more complicated. Whether those are good or bad things….

Anyway, I’ve just sent the book over to America to my ebook formatting lady, Kimberly Hitchens. If any of you are looking for a reliable and reasonably priced formatter for your ebooks you could do worse than use Hitch’s services. You can contact her at hitch@Q.com. This is also the third of mine that Hitch will ready for epublishing. I’m looking forward to working with her again.

Although I’ve selected a photo from iStockPhoto.com for use as the basis for the cover, I thought I’d experiment a bit myself, just in case I could save myself a bit of money. I decided, because the book’s called Death Line with a murder centred around a New Age business that deals in hand analysis (palm reading) and astrology, I thought I’d have a picture of a human hand with blood following the curve of the Life Line (to symbolize death). I also used a black cloth and pix of astrological symbols. What do you think? The one below is probably my best shot.

I tried to cut my own hand to get some blood, but apparently we have a houseful of blunt knives! Certainly none of them would cut your throat to oblige you. So I had to resort to other means. I didn’t have any tomato ketchup, so I used tomato puree. Then I tried red nail polish. Nothing if not inventive!

Each time I set my props up, got the tomato gunge on my hand, took the shots, then cleaned up and put everything away, my husband complained there was this wrong with it or that wrong with it. So I did it again. Four attempts later…

Well, I thought it was pretty good for a book cover. Not too cluttered, limited colour palette, stark. Though Rick Capidamonte, who does my jacket graphics wasn’t as impressed as I’d hoped. So we’re going with the picture I first thought of from iStockPhoto with Rick adding various elements to the basic hand picture. I really like it. I love the colours and think it’s pretty striking. What do you think of it?

Have you ever attempted to do your own book cover? Tell us about your experiences and if the experts rejected your brave attempts as they did mine or if you went on to use it in an actual publication. Put a link in your comment so we can see what you did.
