Royalty Free Photos – Top Four Websites

I make book covers, along with a whole slew of other small graphic design things. I wish someone had informed my of royalty free sites when I first started designing my covers, they’ve made life so much easier.

For those of you who want to get into graphic design or want to make your own covers, here are a few sites you can use without worrying about permissions or legal trouble.

You don’t have to join to make use and download the awesome and amazingly high-quality photos, but when you make an account you can favourite and organise the photos you may want to use later.  As is the case with all of these sites, I have an account for this reason; I’m not too fond of filling up my hard drive with photos I may never use, no matter how breathtaking they are.

Writing Update – What Happened? Life.

This was also posted my website, blog and tumblr. 

A lot has been going on for me lately; personally, academically, online and mentally.

You may have also noticed that I also took down almost the rest of my stories leaving two still posted. You also realize that on March 1rst I was supposed to reveal the chapter of my NaNoWriMo novel: We Fall Down, it didn’t happened.

How could I have been so stupid as to begin to trust him again. “It wasn’t my fault.” He whispered it this time at her back as she turned to trail the procession until they reached their an area where she could get a clean shot without getting caught.

Can’t wait to release this piece to Wattpad this march!

Stay Safe.
