Icons.

My good friend, and amazing graphic designer, Sondra Fowler, and I worked for several months to come up with icons to represent the point of view characters in Turning Point.

We use these icons in the paperback version of the book. There are seven points of view in Turning Point (it’s a lot, but it works), and each time the point of view changes, it is announced by the character’s name and by their icon. If you are a visual person, that icon will help keep the thread in order for you. Or maybe you’ll just like the addition of having another anchor point for each personality.

In this post, I’ll start with Adam. His is the first point of view presented in the book. We chose a sort of compass. You can’t see the directions of the needles (no north/south/east/west), but the needles themselves are sharp and strong. They are well defined and they almost look like fangs.

Adam is the original vampire in this story. He takes control of any situation he is in and drives it in the direction he desires. He has a sort of moral compass, in that he usually doesn’t kill indiscriminately, but he also has a plan. If you’re part of it, he’ll let you know. Or, he’ll direct your thoughts and actions to bend to his will. Either way, he gets what he wants.

Until Alice grows up.

But that’s for another post.

To see more, be sure to follow me on Instagram (I also hope to have an Instagram link for Sondra, too). That’s where the rest of the icons, and a peek into my characters’ personalities, will be posted in the next couple of days.

Marketing Isn’t Sexy.

The end result may well be, but the doing it part, meh. I’d rather be delving into my made-up universe and hanging out with my pretend friends Alice, Adam, and even the newbies. You’ll have to read book two to find out who they are. (There’s a guy named Kal and he’s dark and handsome–oops, did I say that out loud?)

And, no it’s not out yet. This is what we in marketing call, “A Teaser.” Maybe, I don’t know. I’m not actually in marketing.

I think I’ve been in quarantine too long.

Anyway, today, I wanted to make sure everyone in the room knows how to reach me and how to read me. (See what I did there?)

If you’re reading this, you are likely seeing it through Facebook or Twitter. But did you know that these posts actually originate from my website? Maybe check out kristynotkirsty.com. I try to put up a post most weekdays. If you know all about the website because, duh, that’s how you got here, did you know I have a Facebook author page? It’s Kristynotkirsty

I’m also on Twitter: Kristynotkirsty

And finally, I’m on Instagram: Kristynotkirsty

Check out the links, maybe say hi or something. I don’t bite (that’s extra).

Until then, keep reading.
