Another idea — very different — for the logo for my publishing house, DooRFrame Books. I need a logo that is wider than taller for the back cover of my novels…
The dimensions are challenging because I want to use the image of a door.
However, I don’t like the grey as it came out, and I’d rather the door be upright — so tossing this one.
We are sitting in Waffle House, perusing an issue of THE ECONOMIST. I spot an article about drug gang violence and murder rates in Mexico and South America. The article mentions a 70 year old woman who hires a hit man to exact revenge on a group of thugs after the gang breaks her grandson’s arm because she refuses to pay protection money to the cartel.
I start a novel that evening, but it comes to nothing. I can’t wrap my mind around ‘the rest of the story.’
Until, that is, I write GANI & SEAN, my novel about assassins.
Once I have my assassin created, the story of the grandmother in Mexico becomes THE ONLY THING: BOOK TWO: GANI & SEAN.

I’m calling out —
I’m trying not to shout —
Or rhyme for that matter.
But, Christmas is in my sights — as soon as the first hint of cool weather comes down from the north, I think “Christmas is coming!”
My novels make great Christmas presents! I say this wholeheartedly because they are well-written, relatively easy to read, and rewarding in so many ways.
Take a chance —
Buy a DooRFrame Book.
Still playing around in PhotoShop with logo ideas for DooRFrame Books. The image on the right appears a bit too dark to me, so I lightened it up. I think I prefer the first over the second, from left to right, that is.
Edited version of AFTER JEWEL with new cover and price.
I keep tweaking it but still somewhat dissatisfied. Off to the drawing board again.
Final logo on cover for SEA COWBOYS, my novel (unwritten).
After playing around off and on all day, I finally managed to create my logo for my publishing house, DooRFrame Books. The look I achieved is exactly the one I “saw” with my mind’s eye! I love the colors, the overall feel, and the “look.”
What do you think?
Most issues with logo creation for me have to do with sizing it appropriately. I am less and less satisfied and more and more confused by PhotoShop but slowly I am re-learning how to play with photographs to get what I want — what I only “see” in my head.
Tiny logo on left bottom of ‘mock’ cover for a novel I’ve started but not finished; hence the lack of a description for the back cover.
