Since I read a lot (over 80 books so far this year), I did not know what to do with this project. So I decided to use an excerpt from the book I have been writing and editing for several years. The title of "The Ring of Time"and it is a fantasy. Maybe sometime in the next year or so, I will publish it on Kindle. Here is the quote:
When she emerged from the portal on the Marconalia side, she was in a very large cavern. Twenty feet in front of her was a rough rock wall covered with small rivulets of cascading waterfalls that disappeared into a riot of gems that reminded her of a garden. Light coming from the portal illuminated the walls. Walking ahead, she marveled at the beauty of the colors and shapes of sparkling gems. The light began to fade and she turned back to the portal in time to see the aperture shimmer before the light diminished again.When I first decided on this passage, I thought about how to do the background. I wanted to make it craggy so I scrunched up the fabric, tied it and left it for several days.
Then I unfolded it and pressed it onto some fusible interfacing.
