Playing around…

I’m playing around with developing a new website, but I needed a new header. So, we’re throwing out some ideas about something simple, yet fun.

I’m into brainstorming (ask anyone who took my mind-mapping class at the Muse Online Conference)**LOL** So, I’m looking at all options whether they’re obviously not what I want to some that might work. So, here are a few we’ve come up with so far. And don’t mind the water marks…we’re just been playing around with the backgrounds before we purchase them….

Well, that’s it for now…..Any faves? Are they all junk? Heading in the right direction? Way off course?

Most of my novels are set in the desert so I’m hoping to find something along that line….

But we’ll see what happens

  1. I think none of them represent the obvious play on words you’re implying with the font in “Rush”. Pick a photo background that has some movement to it — like a sailboat, runners, bikers, mountain climbing… or some other adrenaline inducing activity that is well represented in the photo.

    Just my two cents.

    I wound up doing a banner that played off my second book in the series. It’ll be easy to switch when the third one comes out and will keep the site fresh looking if I change it often.

    Good luck with yours!

  2. Hey friend, I like #3, but I will say I think I would like it better without the little curlicue thing in the background. Is that representative of something or just the way the clipart came? I like your name hanging out in the sunlight. Seems to parallel your sunny disposition! Happy choosing.

    • Hi, Melissa. Yep. That’s just the watermark. Once I purchase the picture, that’ll go away. πŸ™‚ I’m thinking #3 might be the winner. πŸ™‚ Most of my stories are set in the desert, so it’s fitting. And I love living in the desert. Such unique beauty here. And I love sunrises (as you all know by my constant posting of sunrise pictures LOL)…that might be the fit.

      Thanks for weighing in!!

    • Thanks!! I’m leaning toward #3 right now. I’m curious, how does #5 represent my writing (blue wisps)? I’m surprised so many people have mentioned #5. I like number 5, just not as much as 3 & 4.

I respond to comments, so leave me a note....
