More on Kids Lit…

I’ve done the covers for all 6 of the children’s Uh Oh Series and written all six manuscripts and done their weird little illustrations. The age target is 5 – 9 year olds, though I’ve had good feed-back from 10 years. Some people like my stick figures and some hate them. Luckily the likes are mostly kids, so that gives me hope.

Don’t worry that dark bit at the bottom is not on the actual illus.

I’ve been trying to sort how to format this type of thing on Vellum. I’m finding, however, that it does not give me the flexibility to do exactly what I want (this goes for the poetry too) e.g. I want the page breaks where I want them. I want the lines to stay indented and/or placed where I decide. I would like to be able to change the fonts as and when I like. However, I realise there are limits and I truly am grateful Vellum for all you do, because you do make formatting the novels very easy.

Is anyone else out there using Vellum and having similar difficulties? How’s it going for you? Do you have a program where this is easy to do?

I have spent hours in front of the computer trying to force the program to bend where I know it cannot. Consequently, I haven’t done much writing though I did enter a poetry contest and a short story competition…Yes, I know I said I wasn’t going to do so any more, but I can’t help myself sometimes.

Look after yourselves, stay Covid aware.

Ciao for now, Rosa.
