Jumping guns being a favorite pastime of mine, I decided to try my hand at designing a simple, basic cover for Book One: Beginnings. I’m no artist, though I do understand basic design, so all I’m really left with is fooling around with photos and fonts.
The design and fonts are based on the wonderful banner destinare made for this site some time ago – I couldn’t replicate the exact font she used, but I was able to find a commercially usable font that was similar (I’d still like that original one, you!).
Anyway – it’s not much, and I very much would like a professionally illustrated cover before I go genuinely live with this (and don’t worry, that won’t be for some time – I still need to edit and proof the damn thing!), but for now it makes me feel that much closer to a real, live book!
Anyway…what do you think?
