Book Cover Redesign for Death and Life

***Exciting News***

 If you’ve already ordered a printed version, I will organise a refund/replacement so that you can get a copy of the new book at no extra charge. There is a contact form at the bottom of this post. ★


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

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 :-)

    Beautiful cover. For me it’s no 3 or no 1

    Beautiful. I vote for number 2:)

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

    #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.

      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.

      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.

    • March 12, 2014    

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

    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.

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