This is the ad for my work which is going to run in the announcements section of the upcoming book Steampunk for Simpletons. There’s still time to contribute to their Kickstarter and help them make their stretch goals!
I got the clip art from the wonderful Graphics Fairy website, who provide clip art for personal or resale projects – here is the original so that you can see what I desecrated. All I can say is that the original French typesetter clearly didn’t have the trouble I did fighting the Curve Bend tool in The GIMP. 🙂

Looks great, I particularly love how prominent TEA is 😉
It does seem to feature prominently in everything I write. Though the heroine of the time travel thing prefers champagne. 🙂
I noticed the same trend for coffee in my work.
Wonderful, I love it! 😀
If “Rifles, Xenoraptors, TEA” doesn’t make people want to read your books, I have no idea what will.
(And it’s not just GIMP – text on a curve is a nightmare in every bit of software I’ve tried to coerce into doing it.)
I find GIMP a weird mixture of intuitive and utterly the reverse. I must have been using it for over a decade now and there are still tools that I have no idea about.
