As i have said before I have a number of finished stories that need covers at the moment. So of course I am working on them right now. My hubby was nice enough to pose for a couple of images. While you will not be seeing him in all his handsome glory, he will be part of a number of covers. That is once I get the images sorted out. I have done one all ready and put up a new Death Walks Through tale up for purchase.
The completed piece is Death Comes Softly. More romantic than some but I seem to be tending toward a bit of romance lately. All part of being happily married me thinks. but back to the cover. Coming up with good covers for a series of stories with Death as a character is not as easy as you would think. I don’t want to use that tried and true image of the grim reaper when I am making him a much more understandable character right?
The three other tales I have, Undying Tricksters, No More the Smiles and Shadows on a Wall are all very different. Today I plan to seek out images that will work for Shadows on the Wall.
Now that tale is based on something that intrigued me for a long time. After a massive explosion, such as the one from a Nuke, there will be shadows burned on the walls that remain standing. One tale I heard about was the shadow of a woman who had been sitting outside the bank waiting for it to open. As you can image my mind came up with a quick tale that had to be told. Coming up with an image will probably take me getting someone to take a photo of my shadow. See I think if I can get a good shadow image against a brick wall that would work for the cover?
No More the Smiles will be easier but I have yet to figure it out. And Undying Tricksters? Oh that I am still pondering what to do with that one.
I am debating doing a cover for Sudden Disappearances. That is the novella I did as part of Guardians of the Gate City collection. If I decide to put it up it will probably be one places other than Amazon, B&N and Kobo…just not sure. Any Harry story is just as much fun as the other for me. I love the character of course.
