The Captain by Marisabel Bonet-Cruz

This book has been in the making for such a long time. From character concepts doodled in some scrap UCF computer printout, to Word documents in that old Sony desktop computer, to finally being printed by Sometimes it’s a challenge to get things done, but it’s always very satisfying to see dreams fulfilled. The Captain is my sister’s first published book. She’s hard at work on her second. This new version features a cover with illustrations done by MM Bonet (my other sister) and cover design done by yours truly.

Book Description

1595. Puerto Rico. The Aquino Plantation is a world of wealth, tradition, and loyalty to Spain. For sixteen year-old Soledad it is a world of empty rituals and hypocrisy. Until the night she is captured by pirates. The night she meets Captain Luna Negra. Luna Negra is a pirate. He lives in a world of violence and betrayal. His life has been dedicated to the destruction of the Spanish rule. Until he meets Soledad. Now, their lives can no longer be the same. Soledad must face what it means to be a lady of Spain, the fiancée of headstrong Captain Rodrigo de las Rosas, and a silent member of a society trapped in the past. Luna Negra must question his place as the leader of his men, his part in a society that shuns him, and his blind desire for revenge. United in their search for freedom, Soledad and Luna Negra must find their true destiny.

I’m having a HUGE SALE – 50% off everything in my Bonet Graphic Designs Store: click here

The Return? Part Two

So a couple of weeks ago I wrote an entry about returning to graphic designing. You may have noticed I haven’t written an entry in quite the while (since August 30th). So, what happened? I finally landed a full-time job! That’s what happened! LOL

While this is fabulous news since I now have a steady source of income (and a boat-load of benefits), it is also bad news. My work schedule barely allows me time to dedicate to making graphics for my blog and my various online stores.  I haven’t stopped designing though. It will just be a slower process that’s all.

On another note, I would like to thank everyone who has dropped by and given me so many hits, also to all my new Twitter followers, to everyone who has downloaded one of my freebies (I would still love to see some pictures of your fabulous creations), and especially to all my Etsy customers.

That’s all for now. Stay frosty!

Zazzle Products: Stylish Circles

Here are a couple of products I created for my Zazzle store. What I love about Zazzle is their ability to customize products. I make the design and then the customer can add their own text and personalize the product. It’s very convenient.  The following Zazzle products are all customizable. I’ve included a preview of what the finished product will look like with some stand-in text.  Design features a pattern from Camxso’s The French Connection pattern set.
