Got Cover

I put together the first version of my e-book challenge cover. It needs some fine tuning, but I think I nailed the title:

Midnight Blues:  A Darkyn Novella

Once I have a final version, I'll add it to the sidebar along with a link to the challenge post. I will also be posting regular updates on my progress, and nagging everyone regularly to get going on their stories. I know the challenge deadline is right before NaNoWriMo, but think of it as a warmup.


  1. Cool cover! I posted mine the other day ("Exposed" in sidebar), but I think I might have the font all wrong?

    Some people think it's no big deal, but I think the right or wrong cover font makes all the difference in the world.

    Wait...we have to make a cover, too? *~*

    Man...I hope my sister's willing to pitch in her art skills.

  3. I've written about 10% of mine, and am thinking about cover concepts.

  4. A cover? Ouch, I don't even have photoshop to play around, and I don't know if I can do something with the program that comes with WindowsXP. Nor can I steal the pic of some hot actor because of all those copyright issues. ;)

  5. Very Nice!!!

    I can't wait. :) I'm going to try and do my own cover too. LOL If not, I have a friend that'll help me out as sometimes I bite off more than I can chew. :)

    It's definitely not a requirement for the challenge. I hadn't done an e-book cover in ages, so mine was just for practice & fun.

  7. I make my own book covers: Thick White Crust is my e-book contribution... If anyone on this post including Paperback Writer would like a free copy, just email me: So there, my contribution...

  8. Whew, I thought for a second you wanted us to do art. The last time I tried something like that I glued two of my fingers together and had glitter in my eyebrows. Not a pretty picture.

  9. Glitter in your eyebrows? Holy crammoli that's a major art piece in itself! If you're not too talented with glitter, try a photo art cover and start taking some quick courses in Photoshop and photography (or learn from the Web) One must learn composition...
