(Coming Up: Interview with MG Author Linda Urban!)
Or cards and flyers!
Or oversize wall posters!
Via a GalleyCat article, I learned that Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual author/illustrator Bradley W. Schenck created this neat way to mimic classic science fiction magazine covers.
I tried it out yesterday, spending a few minutes online customizing the utter brilliance you see above...and, um, yes, the title of my story is "Night of the Toaster-Like Machine from Outer Space." I was waiting for breakfast to pop up at the time.

Anyway, the Pulp-O-Mizer does a great job of making it easy and FUN to create and download a free image. If you want any of that fancy stuff I mentioned above, you've got to pay for it, but you can use it for blog posts and such free of charge.
If anyone out there is planning on throwing a party soon, I highly suggest making invitations/flyers using this tool (could be fun for birthday parties too~"Night of the intergalactic 40-year-old husband~ run for your life!").
It could also be a cool way to promote a book event!
Speaking of book events, I'll leave you with images from last week's Princes and Princesses party at the library, where the kids read P&P books and then built their own geometric-style toothpick and marshmallow castles (because nothing says "royalty" like toothpicks and marshmallows). Take a look at the pictures below. Think my kid did that herself or do you think the hubby couldn't resist taking over??? Scroll down for the answer.
