Publishing -- Chapter Graphics 1


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

A little graphic at the beginning of a chapter adds a touch of additional interest to the book. It definitely made me feel special, when this heart graphic was added in Heart Thief. I THINK it's "my" graphic, since it's shown up in every book since and I haven't seen it in others. I feel it was most appropriate for Heart Thief, but am glad to see it each book, above is Heart Choice. Also, note the change in font for the first line of every chapter and scene break -- again something to catch the eye, maybe keep the reader reading...

Yes, this IS a real scanned page of Heart Choice, which means a tiny, teasing excerpt.

Love to all, Robin

I'm glad I've gotten and devoured Heart Choice already.

Hmm.. When is the next one coming out again? ;)

Thanks DA, and Bonnie. Somehow this one is more exciting than Heart Duel...I don't know why. It's not that it was easier to write!

I'm not sure when Heart Quest will be out -- sometime next year, summer, probably.

I'm excited, I bought the book yesterday and can't wait to read it. Why haven't I started? Because I'm on a San Francisco to NYC flight this Monday and I want to read it then because I know it will make the flight time fly by..;).

I'm in the middle of reading it right now and I have to say that thus far it's very good much like your other books.
