There are many reasons an author may choose to self-publish. I’ve chosen to become an indie author because I love not only the writing part of publishing, but also the business side. I’m excited to have creative control over my covers, titles, content, and formats. I also feel empowered to hire my own professional editors and designers, whatever I decide I need to make a quality product for readers. I have control over when I publish, how much I price my books for, and where I put them up for sale.
Cover design is one of the BEST parts. I have so much fun creating covers. That said, I spend a lot of time designing a variety of covers for all my paranormal and contemporary titles. Since I’ll be releasing my paranormal trilogy first, those are the covers I’m spending the most time on.
As an indie author, I have the freedom to make my own rules, at least a little bit. So, I’d like to open up my design direction to readers, writers, authors, bloggers, and the general public. Will you help me decide which direction to choose? Which set of covers appeals most to you?
Please let me know! Vote in the comments section for cover set A, B, C, D, E, F, G, or even H. And now there’s also Z!
Obviously these are not even close to what the final product will look like (And I need to resize), but before I go further, I’m curious which is most appealing to YOU! Some images show the front cover only and others show the full book spread, including cover, spine,and back.
I appreciate your participation. Much love, cecelia ❤
H Keep on working Cecelia. What else can you come up with? Try a completely different direction!
