Today, along with the author, I'm revealing the cover for Anne Riley's Shadows of the Hidden. Since this one is special (to be published by Compass Press, my sister company), I'm doing a bit of a promotional giveaway for it. Authors, you can win a free bookmark design and all who enter will receive 20% off of any of my design services, including covers! To enter fill out the form below the cover reveal. But first, the big reveal:
Now for the bookmark design and 20% off services giveaway:
You may have noticed a new tab in the list above; For Sale. While speaking to a friend regarding his cover he told me that he had absolutely no idea what to do for a cover but that if he saw what he wanted he would know immediately. I asked him to tell me a bit about his book, which he did, then I ran ideas by him. Still, no luck. On a whim, I designed something for fun in my spare time that I felt might work for him. He loved it!
In helping him I learned that some authors just need to see a picture that truly speaks to them before they know exactly what they want. And in speaking to other cover designers, I found out that many of them design what they call ready-made covers that authors can purchase as is or with small changes. Instantly I fell in love with this idea, because I'm all about inspiring authors.
Under my For Sale tab you'll find covers that I have designed which are original and unique (NOT simply an unaltered stock photo) and are available at a discounted price. They are often two images which have been combined, altered, had the colors changed, special affects added, etc. Included in the price shown are small alterations to help personalize them even further (such as color alterations, special affects, etc.) to suite you and your novel.
