Experimental Shades of Gray Cover

vs 2 - 2500

It was supposed to stay red like the original cover, but it turned kind of orangey, but I liked it, so I left it. As for design elements, since the first book does have a heavier romance element it got a hunky hero silhouette. I could give you a lot of crap about the symbolism of the tree, but really I just like trees. Plus they look cool.

See it in action on Amazonsignature for white

  2. HI Jo… i think its cool. The ‘orange’ looks almost ‘fire’ like, creating a striking image. Flames, fire, heat, danger – a two fold representation of passion, creativity, romance too. Nice one! Wishing you luck and success as always. Cheers D

  3. To hell with symbolism. If it looks good (which it does) then keep it and let others argue about its symbolic value. Either way you’ll get sales.

    • Heh-heh, I’ll tell you a secret: I design them first, then make up the symbolism later ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Whatever works for you. I’ve just begun designing a new cover fr Three Hoodies 1. It’s about time I tried for something more professional.
