Summary : About 80% of people have the desire to write a book at some point. With the advance of computer and printing technology, this dream can become a reality. One important factor of publishing a book is to create a professional looking book cover. This book uses book cover design as a case study to teach you how to use FREE Scribus software (instead of expensive professional software like InDesign, Photoshop, and QuarkXpress) to create professional presentations. With fewer words and many full color screenshots, we walk you step by step through the entire process. No prior experience is needed. You will learn how to: 1.Download all the FREE software needed. 2.Put the cover template in correct formats. 3.Set up the sheet correctly using units, colors (RGB or CMYK), layers, the imported cover template, sizes, guides, bleed area, and safety margin. 4.Add the background color for the cover with a shape or image frame. 5.Add the cover image and author's photo, as well as how to handle a fully bleed image. 6.Add the titles and text accurately, including information on selecting or changing the text color, using the text box, centering the text, aligning different text boxes, and rotating the text. 7.Add the barcode by extracting the barcode from an EPS file and moving all the barcode elements together or by adding the barcode as a JPEG image file. 8.Use Scribus software to create professional presentations such as book covers, magazine covers, graphic designs, posters, newsletters, renderings, and more. About the authors Alice Chen is an avid Scribus user. She has extensive interest in presentation software, and resides in California.

Summary : WHAT IS THE STORY GRID? The Story Grid is a tool developed by editor Shawn Coyne to analyze stories and provide helpful editorial comments. It's like a CT Scan that takes a photo of the global story and tells the editor or writer what is working, what is not, and what must be done to make what works better and fix what's not. The Story Grid breaks down the component parts of stories to identify the problems. And finding the problems in a story is almost as difficult as the writing of the story itself (maybe even more difficult). The Story Grid is a tool with many applications: 1. It will tell a writer if a Story ?works? or ?doesn't work. 2. It pinpoints story problems but does not emotionally abuse the writer, revealing exactly where a Story (not the person creating the Story'the Story) has failed. 3. It will tell the writer the specific work necessary to fix that Story's problems. 4. It is a tool to re-envision and resuscitate a seemingly irredeemable pile of paper stuck in an attic drawer. 5. It is a tool that can inspire an original creation.

Summary : When 16-year-old poetry blogger Tessa Dickinson is involved in a car accident and loses her eyesight for 100 days, she feels like her whole world has been turned upside-down. Terrified that her vision might never return, Tessa feels like she has nothing left to be happy about. But when her grandparents place an ad in the local newspaper looking for a typist to help Tessa continue writing and blogging, an unlikely answer knocks at their door: Weston Ludovico, a boy her age with bright eyes, an optimistic smile...and no legs. Knowing how angry and afraid Tessa is feeling, Weston thinks he can help her. But he has one condition -- no one can tell Tessa about his disability. And because she can't see him, she treats him with contempt: screaming at him to get out of her house and never come back. But for Weston, it's the most amazing feeling: to be treated like a normal person, not just a sob story. So he comes back. Again and again and again. Tessa spurns Weston's "obnoxious optimism", convinced that he has no idea what she's going through. But Weston knows exactly how she feels and reaches into her darkness to show her that there is more than one way to experience the world. As Tessa grows closer to Weston, she finds it harder and harder to imagine life without him -- and Weston can't imagine life without her. But he still hasn't told her the truth, and when Tessa's sight returns he'll have to make the hardest decision of his life: vanish from Tessa's world...or overcome his fear of being seen. 100 Days of Sunlight is a poignant and heartfelt novel by author Abbie Emmons. If you like sweet contemporary romance and strong family themes then you'll love this touching story of hope, healing, and getting back up when life knocks you down.

Summary : Book Excerpt: p>February 1891.Just in front of my window, on the other side of the stream, a band of gypsies have ensconced themselves, putting up bamboo frameworks covered over with split-bamboo mats and pieces of cloth. There are only three of these little structures, so low that you cannot stand upright inside. Their life is lived in the open, and they only creep under these shelters at night, to sleep huddled together.That is always the gypsies' way: no home anywhere, no landlord to pay rent to, wandering about as it pleases them with their children, their pigs, and a dog or two; and on them the police keep a vigilant eye.I frequently watch the doings of the family nearest me. They are dark but good-looking, with fine, strongly-built bodies, like north-west country folk. Their women are handsome, and have tall, slim, well-knit figures; and with their free and easy movements, and natural independent airs, they look to me like swarthy Englishwomen.The man has just put the cooking-Read More
