Tomorrow is my birthday and I am… peaceful and thankful. Love overflows from my heart.

Thank you, God. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Holy Spirit.

Thank you, everyone. And, yes, I thank you – you, who are reading this right now. And my thanks goes out to those who will never see or know of these words that I have put down here.

As I reflect on my life, I cannot but wonder at the countless blessings, joys and gifts that I have received and I receive them all, every smile too, with gratitude, enthusiasm and humility.

I would not be me without them. Without you. I would not be. Without you.

Stan Faryna Terrible Threes

So I thank you all, again, and I wish for you all, all good things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Blog Soup

If you don’t know about the epics of blog soup, a deliciously OP (Over Powered) explanation follows.

The comments below represent comments that I posted and those that failed to post to the websites, blogs, videos and streams that I visited. On occasion, they may represent Tweets, Replies, or Comments made on Facebook and other Social Media networks. Not everyone will appreciate the comments made to their post (I rarely suck up, brown nose or gush), but hopefully they’ll forgive me any offense (real or imagined) and, yes, they should absolutely love the rank-link juice to blog and Twitter. This is not a noob’s blog and some have even said that my seo game is fierce as it is sweet.

More about blog soup at the end of this post.

This is a repost of the post I posted a few hours ago as something blew up on my blog and I have no idea what it was. All I know is that the post failed to get picked up by Triberr and some other distribution services. If you received two notices of this blog post, I humbly ask for your forgiveness and patience.

For better or worse, curation, conversation, intelligence, humanity, curiosity, intense value and cunning are at the heart of social. If you can’t bring three out of seven, social is going to be a casual experience for you. Blog Soup is a exercise in both social savvy and social media DOH. You can learn from it. You are free to imitate the format and steal the title for your own purposes and ambitions. Hat tips to me would be appreciated but they are not necessary. The words in my blog soup are copyright by me. Just email me if you want to use my blog soup on your own blog.
Feel free to recommend a post or other kind of illuminating share to me. For inclusion in my blog soup. Do not recommend your own stuff unless you are doing awesome, epic or legendary things that will amaze me. Or if no one knows who you are AND you have important ideas to share with the world. Because I do have a heart. My email is stan.faryna@gmail.com.

Got Arts?

A blog post about how to get art for your book.

Author Adam Croft writes about Authors’ need for artwork. Self-publishing authors – even more so. Beyond cover art, there is need for art work to illustrate your social media messages and online marketing campaigns for Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and beyond.

My comment

The game has certainly changed and there is need for good artwork. Not just for covers, but also for social media and online marketing campaigns. Unfortunately, good artwork is rarely cheap or easy to get.As some of you know, I’ve been working on the cover art for my WIP and future marketing campaigns.Below is the 10th revision of one of four design theme drafts. And there is many more drafts ahead.
Love and Fear Book Cover 2.11
The work goes beyond the capacity of a young design professional.
Below is a sketch of George, one of the characters from the story that would be used in my online campaigns. It remains to be colorized.

George


The young design professional is not likely to be of much help for you. Sure, they can come up with a little something something. Likewise, the affordable foreign designer with some experience is going to have problems if they can’t read, feel and understand your book.Will the artwork sell the book?You can pay five to twenty bucks on fiverr for a book cover design. And you can try out 20 gigs on fiverr ( that can be a horribly expensive lost cause), but are you prepared to provide the commercial marketing and design direction to that so-called  “design professional”?You need someone with experience and someone whose designs have been successful. That’s going to cost $1,000 just for a cover – if you are lucky. A successful publisher will pay several thousand for a decent cover and not just because they like spending money. And, yeah, the professional book designer still has to read the book. [grin]The artwork is not necessarily about what makes you happy. The artwork is about what sells.This is not impossible. Chin up.
