Monthly Link Share – Creating Ebook Covers

Today I’m sharing a few links that I’ve enjoyed reading through and that have really helped me out!

The first link is a site that lists grammar rules written in a humorous way, which makes them easy to remember and quite entertaining to read.

This is a tutorial of how to make your own ebook covers in Powerpoint. I was shocked by his results and how professional they looked! I definitely want to try his tutorial out if I ever design an ebook cover.

The Young Writer’s Program for NaNo has a great pep talk section on its website where published authors “provide advice and inspiration throughout the month.” I personally find them super encouraging and have signed up for the monthly email.

This is for my fellow Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit fans. Think you’ve already heard every rumor about the new Hobbit movie? Think you’ve managed to dig up every tidbit, every secret picture? I guarantee ToRN has something new for you. ToRN stands for http://www.theonering.net/, a Lord of the Rings news site which reports on everything and anything remotely LOTR or Hobbit-y. From sneak peaks of the movie to secret spy photos of Beorn’s house, you’ll see it first on ToRN. One of my favorite features is their frame-by-frame analyses of the Hobbit trailers which can span for pages and are ridiculously funny. They also host one of the best LOTR/The Hobbit web series, Happy Hobbit, which is hosted by Kili and Fili, sisters who are also known as Kelly and Alex. Additionally, ToRN has a library section, complete with in-depth articles about Middle-Earth and its creator. So go check them out, you won’t regret it! (Warning: Addiction may occur. If it does, don’t say I didn’t warn you! :))
