Well ladies and gentlemen. My upcoming book, Where Daffodils Bloom, finally HAS A COVER!!!
Whoohoo! Drum-roll please…
I commissioned a professional cover design company, called Damonza, to create it for me. They took the information I gave them (synopsis, important symbolism, character descriptions, etc) and created two different cover concepts for me to choose between.
One looked a lot like a standard historical romance cover (with two people’s faces on it, etc) and the other leaned more toward a biographical novel design.
They were both very beautiful, and I really wasn’t quite sure which I liked better until I shared them with my Book Launch Team and asked for votes. Then the biographical novel version won almost unanimously. The main reasons were:
- It had a more eye-catching cover combination.
- It was more unique.
- According to some of the team, the other cover looked like pulp historical romance. Whereas this cover captured the powerful essences of the true story better.
So, I went with the second one. I made a few minor tweaks to the original version, adding more information in the subtitle and a tagline at the top, and making one of the fonts more readable. But at last it’s finally finished and ready to share with the world.
Ready to see it?
Here you go:
I am SO excited about finally having a cover. And it’s such a beautiful one, too! The color combination is stunning, and the single daffodil is so eye-catching. I can’t wait to get some book-marks and post-cards designed to match. (Come to think of it, I believe I’ll go work on that right now…)
What do you think of the cover? Let me know in the comments!
