Topic: Huge Sales Are Possible

Wow, congrats!!! Idea Idea

I had one last year that was going to be $129.00 royalty....then it was cancelled. Frustrating!

I think my biggest one that cleared was $36.00, so you've definitely got me beat! I hope you get more!

I think an algorithm or something changed somewhere along the way. I was getting small but steady sales for a while, but the last two years or so it's been a handful of sales around the Fall and Winter months, and then again sometime between Valentine's Day and Spring.

But I'm working on a bunch of new stuff, so maybe I can get back up there. Your success is inspiring!

Well, if you don't mind reading someone who's self published.....I wrote a fantasy. Legends of the Qelesti: Dawn of Redemption, by Jaela Darling. It's on Kindle and in paperback (Amazon only). Should be set up to give a free ebook copy with purchase of a paperback.

And I think I still have an old short story on there too, in ebook format.

The fantasy is supposed to be a trilogy. I'm debating on if I want to move forward with that. I probably should, since I have half the second book done!

Hi all,

I'm curious how some of you create designs for large products like shower curtains, fabric, blankets, etc. What program do you like to use, and what file type do you save as?

I have tried a few times to create large designs, but my poor computer just doesn't like to render large files! I have heard of creating vectors, but I guess it's way over my head, because when I've tried creating vectors in the past, I can't just enlarge it the way I keep hearing you can. It always ends up pixelated.

Any tips, tricks, advice, etc, is greatly appreciated!
