Cover Reveal!

I’m so smart. Why else would I enlist my sister to do the hard work of creating a cover for me? Since I am so smart, it makes total sense that I would decide that the cover isn’t exactly what I wanted. So I do another one myself.

Yup, I’m smart.


That is actually the story behind the cover for The Fantastic and the Wondrous. In the beginning I begged my sister to create one for me because A) I have limited amount of time and B) I am terrified of all things formatting. Yay me.

The original cover, which I won’t show here because…. Reasons. Was cool, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it was not quite what I wanted.

So after thinking this many times late at night when I was supposed to be sleeping, I decided to change it. Even though the reasons I listed above were still valid.

But you aren’t here to listen to me rant about all that. You want to see my book cover! (if you don’t, you can leave now I suppose.)


For being my first cover (wait, why did I just say that?) it’s not so bad! And for all the work it took (not so much, I just like to whine) I like it!

What do you guys think? Does it look like a cover that would catch your eye? Have you ever tried to make a book cover? (how do other people do it so well??) Let me know in the comments!
