Today, I would like to share with you some projects I’ve completed these past few months! Although not officially part of my commission statement (yet), I’ve taken on a few book covers!
First let me share the cover of Meredith Leigh Burton’s beautiful fairy-tale collection, Blind Beauty and Other Tales of Redemption!
This was such a fun cover to create because the author wanted to convey the contrasting theme of light in the darkness, and a difficult journey to a better place. These themes are central to her three short stories within, and I was glad to be part of it! Blind Beauty is for sale NOW at Amazon.
Secondly, a dear friend of mine is planning to share a Jane Austenesque “Beauty and the Beast” retelling on her Wattpad account (which you should go follow because she has a beautiful writing voice). And she needed a cover for her story, The Other Side of the Rose!
This was an especially challenging but satisfying project. Each rose took about an hour to complete, but I’m so pleased with the finished effect. Looking forward to reading this story!
I was very honored to create the cover for a short story by award-winning author, Gillian Bronte Adams! Creating a font from scratch to match the rest of her series titles was very interesting and exciting.
And also, I did a cover for one of my own short stories…Feather & Nettle. This story is available through subscription to my author site, which is here! (If you can’t find the subscribe box, go to my blog page there.)
This is a fun new venue to explore, and I hope to open up cover commissions soon! For now though I am stuffed full on commissions. I am currently working on the interior covers for the fairy tale collection Five Poisoned Apples….and oh, the designs are such a delight…
