    Default Greetings!

    Hello!

    I'm new (obviously) and just wanted to say "hi". I'm an author with a few books on Amazon. I'm currently writing a new one and would like to include a couple of maps. I can't draw to save my life so I'm hoping to find some ideas and tips here.

    I'm going to go poke around but I am already seriously impressed with the beautiful work I've seen so far. You all are amazing!

    Welcome! There's folks here who claim :-) not to be capable of art, yet they make serviceable or even beautiful maps, so be positive about what you can accomplish. Have you picked a tutorial or three to work through? What digital tools do you have access to (or lucre to obtain)?

    Having poked around a few days, what styles have you decided to emulate, or at least shoot for?

    What genre are your books? Urban murder mysteries might call for just a teensy bit different look than space opera or sword & sorcery :-).
