A book and its cover(s)....

Book covers are fun, huh? I always love getting new ones, and I even enjoy designing them. When the cover really tells a story, and hooks the reader in, it's a great thing.

I have a new release this week--actually, it's the now digital version of an older print title--and I have to say I really love the cover. I won't even say that I designed it. Oh, okay, I will. I did.

Actually, if the truth be known, this cover (left) is version three of the cover. Each cover I designed I thought was awesome. And then I would let it sit a while, and I'd decide it wasn't so awesome. Not quite sure why, because they were perfectly nice covers, but they just didn't do. So, I went back to the drawing board and back to the stock photo places to browse.
