Cool Book Covers

I’m back with some more book covers I admire!

This one is nicely wicked (as per the title). Limited color scheme really highlights the red, which might be ink, but more likely blood. The rustic font and color treatment on the font itself helps add to the mood. And the birds add movement to what might otherwise be a static image.

This one has some wonderful elements. The purples and blues meld together with an obvious underwater theme. The whale or eel spine, the daggers, skull, fins, and octopus tentacle give vibes of piracy, mermaids, and danger. The strong title in the center and the faint background of perhaps bubbles adds to the underwater feel.

The Reader seems to be a YA book, but this cover would work for adult fiction as well. Again, limited color scheme, a subtle overlay of underwater pattern, and a strong font. I would have liked the title a little brighter, but it still pops out. The graphic gold divisions across the main figure make it surreal, otherworldly, without making the image look silly or too alien.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
