I’ve been tired of my covers for a long time, so to boost motivation, I sat down and made new ones. Not the covers themselves, I haven’t changed models or anything, but they’ve all got new fonts and style. I’ve also made some changes to layers on some covers, like getting rid of the bokeh on all Something More covers, as it was bothering me. Now all series’ have their own layers, so they’re a little bit different from each other. It’s taken me quite a while, and it will take longer still to format all files and update them on Amazon.
This is the font and style all covers will have. I like to keep it consistent, especially seeing as while I separate my current books into three different universes (Something More, Souls of London, Arctic), they are all the same universe. Glenn from More Than Life chats with Matt from Lost Souls online, and I have a holiday novella planned for a couple of the Something More series to go to Svalbard and meet some of the Arctic guys.
Anyway, I also decided to make the Scarred Souls more colourful. Or, well, just make the font colourful. Red fits well with the character of Josh, who has borderline personality disorder and also self-harms, so therefore red, since it’s the colour of blood. I’ve never been able to get the colours on these covers right before – and I am quite happy with them now, with that small splash of red.
And here’s the first cover of More Than Words. Bokeh is gone, replaced with another top layer. New pose from the model I see as Alex. I’m quite happy with the result. This entire series is now sticking to beige tones. Not what you usually see in romance, perhaps, but I like it.
And here are the covers for my newest book: Arctic Dreams. It features Frey (Varg’s twin brother who’s trans) and Armas (big, bearded guy full of PTSD).
I think these new covers look a lot more professional. I’ve always liked by cover models, but my fonts and style haven’t been up to par. I think these are professional-looking now. Here’s hoping it’ll be the last time I do changes to covers, but honestly, I can’t promise that!
