The making of the covers for the Appalachian Journey series by CC Tillery [final part 4] is for Wise Woman

Boy this post has been a long time coming!  Now we did physically build another house, move and I had other projects going but I think I’m at least a year overdue on writing the post.

The sister duo already has a new series about the Brown Mountain Lights with one out and the second one in the works. I guess I’ve just been busy with things but today while clearing out my computer files I decided to post before some of the files I had were deleted.

Sharing in a different context than intended

I bought a few Photoshop actions thinking they’d be useful for a client’s cover someday.  On the way home from the grocery store I was first in line to wait for a train to pass. As the red and white bar crossed the road I wiped my cell phone, pressed it to the windshield and waited to snap. When I got home I used the actions, then continued to edit and tweak them. I spent WAY to long on them and in hindsight should’ve closed everything except Photoshop because these massive files chugged along on my computer, all along with me praying my CPU wouldn’t crumple under the strain.
