I'm not an expert book cover designer, but I think I'm good enough otherwise I wouldn't do it. People say they liked the first cover for Come Into The Light, I did too at first. It's very simple and I thought pretty to look at, but then it started to look just blah, you know just lacked character.
Each book cover in the series has a different designer, which is okay because each book is different. Yet, I want them(the covers) to have a something that connects them. Hopefully that is me.
Fairlight was done by a cover artist at Champagne Books. I didn't have any input in that. I'll probably have to change it anyway after I get my rights back. Can't wait. It's not bad. I just don't feel all that attached to it. It looks like a young adult novel.
Light of the Moon was designed by Regina Wamba. She did Cheap Red Wine, Fine Lines, and Once an Outlaw for me. She's great and worth the money, but I have to operate on a slimmer budget these day. Therefore, I've had to learn to do as much as I can with my own meager talents.
I think the second cover for Come Into the Light ties the series together more visually with the choices in font and colors.
What do you think?
