More book cover critiques!

Today is blue and purple day!

Simple, haunting, and asking questions. I don’t think it even needs the ‘A gripping psychological mystery’ at the bottom, because all of that is evident in the single smoking, melting candle and the tag line. I love that the smoke is in front of the font, but behind the tagline. I might have reflected the red fading into dark into the author’s name at the top.

Lovely, mystical, and magical. I love this art, and the butterflies make it less dark and dangerous looking. The title font is nicely blocked, though it contrasts a bit too much with the wide kerning of the author name.





Normally I’m not a big fan of substituting letters in the title with other things, but in this case, it works, with a definite message to the dark/horror aspect of the book. There’s almost too much moonlight on the branches, but it still works. I might have made the author the same font as the title, but definitely the red there works perfectly.

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.
