More book cover critiques!

I really like this cover – but there are still a few things I don’t like about it. While I adore the interactivity of the image with the title, the font on the title seems too blurry compared to the elements. The roses are obviously copied and pasted, then turned. The shadows are intermittent. And the snake imagery is all the rage lately – too much? That being said, the contrast is strong, the font a good choice, and the author name, while it could stand out a bit more, is strong. I had to read it twice to see it was ‘Hale’ rather than ‘Hall’.

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:
