Many thanks
to all of you who took the trouble to vote on my book covers,

How hard have you found designing book covers for your own books?

Coming soon!
Sharon Lucchesi will be reviewing the book, here,
for you.

  1. I love that cover. The central image is beautiful.

    Designing my cover has been a hair tearing experience. My aunt is doing the art work for the cover design, and then I'll have to play around with the fonts and sizes for the actual cover. The cover is so important, I'm really quite stressed.

  2. Bless you, thanks Stephanie. Sorry you're having headaches over your cover design/launch. I'm trying to stay cool about it all. Good luck! x

  3. I like the compromise! It keeps the simplicity of #2, but adds one more color/element to the page!

  5. Thanks Dianne, glad you like it.

    Old Kitty, Bless you! Of course you may vote via comment box under that post, but the poll was causing blogger to throw wobblies, so I removed the link...

  10. That's quite clever. I like the extra details compared to the one on the left. I'm also fond of the circular pattern.
