Day 5 of #AuthorLifeMonth

So because I’m a little confused about what comp covers are (inspirational covers or covers that didn’t make the final cut), I decided to do something a little different.

I am a self-published author, so of course I thought I could do it all myself. Yeah no…it doesn’t work that way.

The first 2 covers on the left are covers that I did myself on Photoshop, which basically means I bought royalty-free photos and added a title and played with the colors.

When I realized neither of these were attracting potential readers, that’s when I finally bit the bullet and got a professional designer. The cover on the right is now the current cover, and I am in love!

I feel it really captures the protagonist and what I pictured the cover should be. And it was all thanks to the lovely Dafeenah at Indie Designz!
