It's Blog Revamp Time Again!

It’s the time again, folks! I promised another blog revamp competition, and here it is. As before, you’ll get:

Template and matching banner

Fancy title/sidebar font

Blog post divider

Post signature

And also a “branding” avatar for your Blogger profile that matches your theme/banner.

To see what kind of site you can win, here are a few I’ve done. Just click on the names to view the sites:

Sarah Masters



I can create a custom-made template for you, or you can choose one from these two sites:

Scrap-E-Blog

Shabby Blogs

Also on offer today is a cover, providing I have the pictures to create what you want or you have the pictures I’d need. If you have an upcoming book and your publisher allows you to provide your own cover, here’s your chance to win one. Below are three covers I created last week for Got Romance Reviews, who are giving away Christmas freebies from Thanksgiving onward. These are all “themed” where they have a similar look with the colours and fonts, but it gives you an idea of the kind of cover I can create. I’ve made all my Sarah Masters covers too, so for a peek at those, go HERE.





So, all you have to do is comment. If you just want a blog revamp, write BLOG. Just a cover, write COVER, and if you want both, write BOTH.

Simple as that! Names will be placed in my rather lovely winter hat and drawn on Sunday. Tess will announce the winner in her post on Monday. I’ll then contact you and discuss what you would like.

Good luck everyone, and have a great day!
