How to rock a limited color palette! This is gorgeous. The image interacts with the strong font. The dripping blood is very evocative of Dark Fantasy. There’s a hint of fairy tale, with the crystal rose. I love the texture

To Pen Name or Not To Pen Name?

Why do authors use pen names? There are many reasons. Maybe you’re an elementary teacher who writes dark fantasy. Or you’ve had issues with a stalker before. Or you don’t want your office co-workers to read that super-steamy BDSM romance

I adore this one. It’s full of magic and mystery. Blue and gold, a star field, some graphics embellishment, and a font that is both whimsical and easily read. The detail on the font melds into the graphics wonderfully, bringing

Oh, this is just so lovely. Evocative, magical, and intriguing. In a purely design view, the contrast is fantastic. The font implies the Jazz Age (and the blurb verifies this). The expression on the figure’s face is both disdainful and

There is a lot to love on this cover. A mysterious building with good mood lighting, a limited color pallete, and a strong title font. The fact that the quote and the author name (and the tagline) are all in

Why I went from Wide to Kindle Unlimited

As a self-published author, I have to make a LOT of decisions. Decision fatigue is very real, and can sneak up on you very quickly. One of the decisions one needs to make when you publish your own books is

Such a lush cover! The contrast is outstanding, the color scheme simple yet stunning. That carving is complex without being overpowering. And having a quote by Sarah J. Maas on your cover isn’t a bad thing. I’m not a huge

The illustration in this is gorgeous and intruiging, and fits the title… but so DARK! I can barely read it at full size, and it just disappears in thumbnail size. Having a quote on the cover by Naomi Novik is
