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

So, Romance covers are their own little world. They can range from the truly stunning to the truly cringe-y. For one to actually catch my eye, though, is unusual because it’s not a genre I normally read. This one does,

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

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

Oh, this one is gorgeous. The color scheme is cold and simple, and gives connotations of winter and fear. The font adds a hit of fantasy. The subtitle adds to the fantasy. I’m not sure I’m a fan of the

PAST STORM AND FIRE has a brand new cover!~

Check out the gorgeous new cover art for Past Storm and Fire! I’ve done a few things at once here, including adding my new pen name, Emeline Rhys, to this timeslip romance. I’m also shifting it over to Kindle Unlimited,

Legacy of Luck is LIVE!

We’re back to dark covers, but at least this one has spots of brightness to increase contrast, both in most of the title and the artwork itself. For balance, I would have brightened the lower right corner as well. Symmetry

I appreciate the work in this one to make it illustrative. However, there’s a disconnect between the realistic image of the ruin and the illustrative feel to the figures. It’s ALMOST there, but not quite. The font of the title

Delightful image, and I always love when the artwork interacts well with the title. I think having the entire title to be the scroll-like font of THE and OF would have been too much, so I appreciate the change. The

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of just having a model’s full face as the cover. However, this one is intense, evocative, and tells so much story. The hair style, the markings, the insect, and the staring eyes combined with

Gorgeous, full of whimsy, limited color scheme, and delightful font. I’m not sure about all the little ribbon details, but it does add to the whimsical nature. Is the ‘a novel’ part necessary? I wouldn’t think it to be a

This one is amazing. I’m including the full spread, because that’s also amazing. Strong colors, action and movement, a font that works with the tone. I might have increased the size of the title, but to be honest, that would

Lovely imagery on this one! Both the tree and the dragon inform the genre as a YA adventure with some fantasy. Now, the subtitle on Amazon says it’s a YA Sci-Fi Mystery featuring global myths – a bit different, but
