I like the star map quality of the first one, but I think it’s too dark. I’ll probably go with #2. Sadly, WordPress won’t let me add it to my acct as official author photo. It sends me to Gravatar, but Gravatar won’t recognize my WordPress log-in. !@#$%^!!
I’ve been reading an HR serial by an author, and was really liking it, was patient with the wait since she promised fast delivery. I got invested in the series. Installment #5 dropped today and… nothing. Zero resolution. When I’m told this will be installment 5 of 5, I expect something other than another cliffhanger. Now there will be other installments under a different title. I’m not interested. I feel cheated. I feel teased and let down. I put in the time and $, and did not receive the expected payoff. Note to authors: People like to binge watch (hello Netflix!) and people like to binge read. Enough with the dragging out of the story. I want to pick up an author and read her all weekend. I don’t enjoy being endlessly teased and then let down at the end.
I’m still not happy with the cover, but moved on to working on the blurb: An intergalactic warlord fresh from the fight, he’s looking forward to a nice break before the next war. He has no idea what to do with the governorship and the princess he receives as reward. He’s a rough and tough beast. He’s a space warrior. He doesn’t know the first thing about planet living or princesses. All he knows is that she’s his, and he’s never going to let her go. She’s a princess of a fallen kingdom. She is the conqueror’s prize. But she will bow to no one. She might have to surrender her body to the beast, but she will not surrender her heart. Let the bedroom games begin!
I’d like to do something fun. So not a straight pic, but a fun filter. These are my top choices so far:
Playing around with my author photo. I am trying to use some fancy filters. What would look good for a sci-fi author? I think this one’s not too bad.
I think I like the lettering lower on the cover, but don’t want to have the red dots over the hero’s image. I sooo wish I had some graphic design talent.
I looove the cover of Emma Dawn’s Harem of Fangs. Why? It makes me want to be the heroine in the book. For one: stunning dress!!! AND she has a harem of fangs waiting. This girl definitely has things going for her! LOL
