More cool book covers

More book cover critiques!

This cover has lovely art, very evocative and intriguing. The simple font works well, especially with the delightful dagger as the T in Agatha. Red is the primary color here, except for her blue eyes, which pop out. The mischievous smile is perfect, and the slight glint to her rosary just adds to the intrigue.

While this cover is pretty typical of urban fantasy or paranormal novels, I love the details that come out as exceptional, such as the strong title font and the raptor in the background. Again, a limited color scheme – golds and blues – are strong and not overwhelming, like many paranormal covers can be.

Many cozy mysteries have a similar look. Typically, they feature a cartoon woman, possibly with a cat, a tray of cupcakes, and/or a witch’s hat. However, this one still gives the feel of a cozy mystery without resorting to the tired cover tropes. Again, the limited color palette, yellow/gold with a splash of purple, works well. Details such as the champagne bubble background and the filigree corners highlight the tone and the setting as a New Years Eve Party.

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. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
