After weeks of deliberation and experimentation, I think I finally settled on the best covers I can come up with using my limited software. Here they are:
Because they are two different versions of the same book, I wanted the covers to be close, but not copies of each other. For the second version, I was just going to do the silver ring, but it looked bland so I added the red border which I think jazzed it up a bit. The ring is not only the ring worn by my protagonist, Sara Donnelly, but also a ring that belonged to my grandmother Florence Wells. Since the book is a fictionalized version of the story of my Wells ancestors (as vampires) I used my grandmother’s actual ring to give it more authenticity. I’m still not a hundred percent on board with these covers, but like I said, I’m pretty limited in what I can create. My search for better cover making software continues. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Both to improve the covers or in software I should look at.
