This is the first cover I started with before I saw Anne Rice’s new Beauty cover.
Just for shits and giggles I added some sample text
And here is the real Anne Rice cover
Inspiration for some fun. It’s a cryin shame that her new cover is a dumb house!
My take on the Johanna Lindsey cover
Thanks to Illustrated Romance for letting me preview and play…hence the watermark
Illustrated Romance has some really fun stuff!
But back to the fairytale theme
I liked it enough to add some text
This was a fave. It shows up really well on thumbnails and white text looked fantastic on it. However, it also looked like a school version of some classic. Not very original. Credit to Jacob Collins for art http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/
I couldn’t get any text on this to my liking
I couldn’t get the text to show up without using a really light glaring color
Wasn’t sure where this was going but it ended up being my back cover for print version.
Starting to really like this one
When I added the text it clinched it. This was the one I went with.
