After some good feedback from some authors, I remixed my book covers. Visit my Flickr set to see what I’ve done, and please comment below on what you think of what I have so far. I would love some specific feedback! These are not finished yet, and I’d love advice on how to improve them.
The new Lustre cover is nice but it’s a ‘pretty girl’, I don’t feel like there’s any of the darkness found in the book on the cover — unless that’s your intention. I definitely prefer the new ‘Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Magic’ covers especially the one here, the only thing I would say is that having the guy up front may make it appear as though he’s the star. ‘Horarium’ cover 2 is cool, with the hour glass just a faint image in the background – makes you look to see what it is. However, I don’t know what this one is about so not sure about the image used, except that it looks like some kind of love story. I love the image of the girl sitting on the floor for ‘The Disenchanted Pet’ it really speaks to me as it relates to what the story is about. However, if possible I’d blend the colours of the alien better with the floor or vice versa or, if that’s the colour of the alien, do something to make it look a little less than a graphic — if that’s the look you want to keep.
These are definitely improvements, all the best with the ongoing work :).
