Hello all, I can’t contain myself any longer. After months of struggling to find art for my book cover, due to copyright issues, I finally settled for a cover that I was happy with, but not in love with. There, I said it :-(

In the end, I decided that publishing the book was more important than waiting (for an indefinite time) to find the right art work. We learn from our mistakes don’t we? :-)

And then, I saw Yves new book…

An Alterable Void by Yves K. Morrow

Isn’t it amazing?!
You can buy Yves book via this link:

…and I saw that the super talented Oloriel Moonshadow had designed the book cover.

Lucky for me, Oloriel agreed to help me and she has designed and created a new book cover that better represents me and the book’s content. I’m blown away by this lady’s talent, and, if you haven’t visited her blog, then you should http://olorielmoonshadow.wordpress.com/

Your feedback is appreciated…

We’re both happy with the design and we’re close to finalising. The only thing left is to choose a font for the book title. What are your thoughts – do you like 1, 2, or 3 below?

We would love to hear your thoughts!

    Looks great. I like #1 the best, but it is less readable than #3 which would be my second choice.

      I agree, Sonya. I love the first one. Thanks :-)

    It’s beautiful! So glad to see you’ve kept a butterfly. No. 1 is my favourite.

      Thank you, JP :-) I love your review – thank you again x

    #1 is great. I know what you mean about getting the wrong art. I think we’re so eager to publish that we take anything on.
    Cheers
    Laurie.

      Exactly, Laurie. I thought that I’d run out of options…thankfully Oloriel appeared :-)

        I found the same thing when I discovered the artist for my new covers.

      • bgbowers March 11, 2014 / 2:26 pm

        Better late than never ;-)

    In case you didn’t get my original comment… I LOVE the new cover art and vote for #1 font :)

    • bgbowers March 11, 2014 / 1:50 pm

      Awww, thanks Melanie :-) Your comment was in my email.. I also love #1!

    Love the cover art. And I vote for #1. It just seems to fit the flow of the art best.

    • bgbowers March 12, 2014 / 9:41 pm

      Thanks, Bob. I like #1 too :-)

  6. Keavaa March 12, 2014 / 5:26 am

    Personally I like number 1. I’ve always liked type faces like that. The art work is amazing. I’m glad that Oloriel was able to work with you.

    • bgbowers March 12, 2014 / 9:43 pm

      Absolutely amazing, I agree! Looks like everyone is voting for #1 – hooray, that’s what I like too :-)
