Cover art critique

Sometimes dragons, magical lights, and fantasy iconography aren’t the right choice. But visual drama always works. This book is simple, almost non-fiction in it’s feel. But it does spell out (literally) that it’s a novel. The simple white figurines with

Cover Art Critique

This is another haunting cover. I am loving this simple, evocative image. While the overall color scheme is pale, bright, it’s still obviously a dark and poignant story. The hint of handwriting in the background implies letters, correspondence, something nostalgic,

Cover Art Critiques

This doesn’t look like your typical ‘hard science fiction’ cover, but I love it. It has that lovely limited color palette, and while the silhouettes don’t offer much detail, we don’t need much detail. We know there’s an ensemble cast,

Book cover critique

This book cover is outside my normal area of genre, but it’s intriguing and well-crafted. I normally go for fantasy, historical fiction, or some adjacent genre, and this is cozy historical mystery. So, sort of adjacent, I suppose. The image

Simple doesn’t have to mean boring. This cover uses that famous limited color pallete and an intriguing icon symbol with appropriate fonts to create an intriguing, strong cover. Now, I think the gilt on the edge frame and the title
