I've read a little of his work - somewhat like Ken Follet's, isn't it? I'm reading a Robin Cook right now, since I can't get my hands on any new Stephen King. I have to be reading something at all times - one fiction, one instructional, usually. :-)

I don't know Ken Follet. You sound a bit like me, I read a bit of all sorts. :-)

That's the idea Mark. It is slightly unnatural though. The spine should be in shadow but it hasn't been changed. You could do this in Photoshop and it would be a great excuse for you to tinker and learn. It is also a great excuse for you to get your head under the coat with the candles again, lots of them.


Hmm... Paper, candles (lots of), coat.... I feel the need to add another disclaimer. :lol:

Actually ferny this is a photoshop spotlight, there's so many lighting effects i didn't know which one to use. :-)As for the paper and candles, I think i'll buy a fire extinguisher first.

That is what I meant when I said the spine wasn't altered. You can see it was done in Photoshop. With a little play, you can sort it out.

I think i'm gonna look for one of those desk lamps that Barbara mentioned once. It could come in very handy for stuff like this. :-)

Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, Steve Coontz, and several others have similar hi-tech CIA/NSA themes to their writings. Dean Coontz, on the other hand, writes more conventional adventure-thrillers.

When I've said "40w bulb for lighting" that is what I've been using. A desk lamp.
