Your Book Cover

If you had complete creative control, what would you want  the cover of your novel to look like? Would it emulate a cover you've admired or would it be unlike anything you've read before?

Here's a cover I put together for my book A Shadow Story. I know it's not the final design, but I had a lot of fun with it. I really look forward to the ideas my future agent and I can come up with.


  1. I think about this kind of thing all the time and actually design them too when I should be writing. :) I've heard about authors who were asked if they had any ideas for covers, so it can't hurt to have something in mind, right?

  2. Oh, I like it.
    I know you and Jaime are talking big publishers, but the two small presses I work with asked me extensive questions about what and how I want for the cover, even down to links of similar covers or even pics from stock files I would like to use.
    So I'm guessing it's always nice--and inspirational--to think about the cover ;)

  3. Love it! You have such talent ^_^ And, from what I've read, it fits perfectly.

    I'd get my friend Laura to help me out. Her photography is so awesome :D


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
