A to Z Challenge – Theme Reveal 2021

In 2021, for the first time ever, I decided to participate in the A to Z challenge. Better late than never, I think. For my main theme I chose to go with images.

Some of you may already know that I create all the badges for the WEP blog hop. But I do more than that. Although I do not consider myself an artist – I’m a writer first – I like dabbling in digital imagery. In the past few years, I’ve been making pre-made book covers. Or you might consider them digital pictures in the book cover format.

Although no writer ever requested any of my covers yet, I enjoy tinkering with imagery and combining stock images (sometimes up to a dozen stock elements for one resulting picture) to create something new and different. I only use FREE stock from a few source websites, mainly https://pixabay.com/ and https://www.deviantart.com/ There are many wonderful artists on both sites, and they are generous with their art.   

All my covers in this year’s challenge will have a pretend title corresponding to the letter of the day and a placeholder for the author’s name.

    That will be cool! Glad you are participating. It just got to be too much for me a few years ago.

  2. Have fun – I am really, really looking forward to seeing your creations.

  3. Oh thius looks like a fabulous Idea. If you feel like it please make a mock up cover for my Unicorn Farm story (Author Susan Olsen – Main person/ my alias). I do not know whether you find this idea inappropriate, stupid or anything. I f you do, please delete this comment.

      Susan. I would love to make a mock cover for your story, but I need to know more about it. Could you contact me through my contact form here, on this site (it goes to my email), so we could exchange emails about your story and what you’d like to see on its cover.

  4. Sounds like you’ve got a great theme. I’m looking forward to seeing your cover creations.

  5. Iain Kelly says:

    This will be a great theme, and a good way to showcase your talent. Look forward to seeing what covers you choose 🙂

    Wow Olga. Best wishes. I will look forward to your creations.

  7. Good luck Olga, I’ll be stopping by, though not participating this year. Looking forward to discovering more of your imagery. Thank you for your hard work on WEP.

  8. Wow, what an interesting theme! Book covers seem to be so important in the publishing world (and in the end, for us buyers), and at the same time, it seems extremely hard to capture the feeling of an entire book in one single image. I look forward to be following, good luck and see you around in April, I hope!

  9. I enjoy dabbling with digital art too and one of my A to Z posts will veer into this area. Looking forward to seeing your covers. Weekends In Maine

  10. Yay! You won’t be sorry you did it. I am one of the few “artists” that participate so anything remotely arty gets my attention. Thanks for everything you’ve done for the challenge already.
