Here are some of the covers I've seen around the internet. All are from books by indie authors. Do you see your favorite?
|Looking Through Lace by Ruth Nestvold|
|Sterling by Dannika Dark|
|Zan by Dalya Moon|
|Talon of the Unnamed Goddess |
by C.R. Daems and J.R. Tomlin
Do you see the difference between the cover for a fantasy novel like Talon of the Unnamed Goddess and a paranormal romance like Sterling? Covers can be a shortcut way to tell your readers what they can expect from a novel. And as readers, we can infer the author's message (hopefully) in a glance.
|Foxblood: A Brush with the Moon|
by R. Lyon
|Water by Shauna Granger|
Shauna Granger's Elemental Series covers are simply breathtaking. Another of my favorites is author H.M. Ward.
|Satan's Stone by H.M. Ward|
I love staring at covers, trying to figure out what the author was trying to convey.
|Parallel Spirits by T.S. Welti|
A good cover can also be helpful when Hollywood comes knocking, as they did for author Lisa Grace.
|Angel in the Shadows by Lisa Grace|
|Pursuit by J.R. Leckman|
I'm sure you'll agree these are rather breathtaking! There are so, so many more I'd love to list, but there's only so much scrolling a finger can take.
What do you think? Which one's your favorite?
