Out and about in ancient places taking photos for my book covers
7/4/2011 2:15:42 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I recently went off on a trip to find inspiration for my book covers. In England, United Kingdom where castles, ruins of castles and abbeys litter the ground LOL

It was a nice day when I set off and I was travelling a couple of hundred miles that day. I reached Porchester Castle in the sun and began my photography.
In a matter of five minutes, it began to rain and didnít stop until I reached home a day later.
I did have a great time at Porchester and the next day Pevensey Castle and Battle Abbey where I also saw the actual battlefield of the Battle of Hastings.
I couldnít resist taking photographs of everything but the raindrops on my camera lens are evident in my pictures.
I do have some very atmospheric pictures for the next time I am designing and producing a book cover.
All my books have book covers that I have produced using photographs of the places I have visited, I enjoy this aspect of publishing my books, but I produce different versions and often have trouble deciding which ones I like best.
I always hope I have chosen the right cover and that the idea of judging a book by its cover is not true, that people do read the blurbs and excerpts to decide if they want to read the whole book or not.
I know I do.
On my trip, I lost the detachable hood of one of my sweatshirts because it was so wet having found it in a puddle in the ruins of King Richard Second I threw it into a litterbin there. I was just so wet.
I saw an actual oubliette something I have not seen before, naturally, there was a grill over it. The dungeons at Pevensey were flooded from the rain so I didnít get down there, but I still had a great time floating about the atmospheric ruins of Battle Abbey.
Look at the facebook page for The Seven Spell Saga to see the new photograph album of Porchester before the rain.
