Playing With Book Covers

Okay, I'm getting out of control.

Book covers have taken over my life. I can't wait until I get home to play around some more. Kathy Holmes, my dear friend, has written a book called Real Women Wear Red which is being represented by a top notch agent and is presently doing the publishing house rounds. I thought...hmmm...if I were her book designer, what kind of cover would I come up with? I mean, I have to practice you know.

So, this is what I came up with.

I call it the cover before the cover. The fake cover, you might say. Not bad if I say so myself. I might put it up at EbookCovers4U even.

I also came up with a fantastic cover for my hen lit, The Sisterhood Girls of the Inner Goddess. Oh man, I simply love it.

The Grand Canyon is the place where the girls get abducted and is the place they discover their inner goddess which they had all along only they didn't know it.

Gosh, I wonder what my girls are doing now? Still sitting in the pile of unread manuscripts or have they been picked up and taken to various places to be read? I hope they are having fun, but knowing them, they're probably getting into trouble.

Oh well, it's almost been 2 months and still nothing from the agent.

Guess I'll go back to making covers...

  1. I love it! I just sent you an email where I suggested you make t-shirts and we can wear them on our book-signing road trip - funded by the publishers, of course! :)

  3. Anyway, I also meant to say that your book would be a great fit on Gabrielle's SW road trip - which some of us are clamoring to join. :)
