Just some inspiration for smoke effect.

On my last cover the design went from the front to the back. I think I would like something new this time but not something too boring. I don’t always think that publishers are putting enough effort in the backcover. I like this idea where it’s still simple but breaks out with some effect around the text.

I absolutely love the effect that is made inside the book.  I will have 2 kind of chapters. The 1st kind won't have a title/number. They are told by Death and is informative but not a part of the action. These I would like to illustrate with something, some dark smoke and maybe a raven to symbolize the Death. He's always traveling through dark smoke and the bird is his symbol. (see comment for rest of the explanation)

I like how this cover is very dark but plays with just very few colors to give the darkness a break and light.

Of course it’s important for me that the cover is going to be awesome – And I’m sure it will be, with you to do the work. But even more important is it that my series will get a matching look! There will be 3 books and it’s extremely important for me that all 3 will match and will look like they are fitting together and that you have thought about it from the start. I myself like those kind of covers there it’s the persons action or color that switches but otherwise they are much alike.

This is saved because I actually just liked the swirls to the left. Don't know why ...

It’s not seen very often but I like the idea of making the title a part of the design with the sword … It’s very different and something you notice.

Another example on how the series covers can match without being too alike.

I just think it's a gorgeous cover.

Again: Then my publisher stated that he liked the more traditional “girl in dress” cover I had to come up with something that satisfied both him and me.  I like this one. I love the blending in the bottom and the extra color it gives to the entire cover. And somehow I really like the idea of seeing her from the back - Just to make it a little different.
