ABOUT THE COVER
The journey of a book cover can be a story itself, as was the case with this cover.
I started out with several versions that I did not send to the author because I didn't like them.
When I found a concept and colors that clicked, I sent that version to the author. Unfortunately, the graphic I used for one of the main elements of the story did not fit what was in the book!
Then came a dozen versions of me searching for something that both matched the author's vision and pleased me. Not happy with any of them.
So I went back to the design of the initial version I sent the author. Fashioned a tailor-made Arc that pleased both me and the author, and started resizing elements on the cover and adding other elements to draw in different parts of the story.
In addition, instead of solid black silhouettes of the two main characters on the front that we started out with, the author and I came up with some select additions of color for these--a flowing brownish-red cloak for one and the stark white hair of another. Success at last!
In the words of the author: "I love these...I am very pleased and appreciative of your efforts."
As always, I am humbled to be part of bringing an author's vision to life. And, Greg, I wish you much luck with this debut novel!
