More book cover critiques!

Today is blue and purple day!

This is lovely, full of Young Adult Fantasy feels. The font is fancy but is big enough and high enough contrast not to be lost. I would have liked more contrast in general, but the mood is dark, so it works. If the font had just a bit more ‘distressing’ it would have been very difficult to see.

This is an unusual cover, and again, I would have liked more contrast, but the undersea illustration in simple colors does give a striking image. The thin, elongated font is a bit difficult to read, but the simplicity definitely helps in this regard.

This one is amazing, and I envy the beauty. The filigree, as I’ve mentioned before, is a favorite of mine, and this does everything right. Bezeling can be over done, but this works. I might have changed the color of the title slightly, to let it stand out against the filigree, but the dark background makes it pop. The castle gives a hint of fantasy or historical fiction.

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:
