Hump Day Happies!

Hokey-dokey. Got the QUICK FIX ARC Tour rolling. Which makes me happy. Kinda like this guy:

Isn't that an adorable smile? (Of course, for all I know, he could be contemplating spitting at the photographer. Whatever. I still think he's cute.)

Oh, and it's not too late to get in on the tour. Just email me your address and I can add you to the reading list.

The other thing making me happy? I haz new bookmarks! 

Well, the design, anyway. They shall be printed soon, though.

Here is Side A:


And this is Side B:


Like my previous bookmarks, it was designed by the talented Jeff Fielder. If you need any design work done (book covers, bookmarks, buttons, and such), Jeff is great to work with, and his rates are very reasonable. You can check out his web site at jallenfielder.com.

So, what's making you happy on this fine Hump Day? Do tell! Your happy makes me happy. :)

Nice bookmarks. I really should invest in something of that nature.

What makes me happy today? I finished ripping up the carpet in the front hallway yesterday and painted it. So, project #1 for spring break is finished. Now onto project #2. Felling trees in the backyard. Yay for my new chainsaw. (I kid you not.)

Anne -- Your books have such pretty cover art--I bet you could make some fantastic bookmarks. They make great gimmies to help get the word out about books. And when your books are mainly in digital format, a bookmark is something you can sign for your readers.

Jeff only charges $30 for designing them, and you get digital files that are fully print-ready, as well as files suitable for web use. I have my bookmarks printed at gotprint.com (also extremely reasonable, and good quality).

Love the bookmark - very cool. I collect book marks and enjoy using them.

I was given a Kindle and the only thing (well, there are others...but) I'm unhappy about is not being able to use my lovely bookmarks. Darn!

Happy Hump day to you and your camel!

Stopping back by to ask you to come over to my blog when you get a change. I left something for you there.

LD Masterson said...

Oh, pooh. That should have been "get a chance."

Deniz Bevan said...

Love the happy camel! And the peacock fellow in the post below, too.
Gorgeous cover - can't wait to dive into Ciel's further adventures (just got a beta read to finish...) - exactly what I need do distract me from my own editing!

Jennifer Shirk said...

Ooh they look great!

Lola Sharp said...

I think camels are cute and I'm a little envious of their eyelashes. :) And I can always find my camel fix her...whether I'm in a fix or not. (see what I did right thur? *crickets*)

The bookmarks look great.
