“Angel Feather” Gets a New Cover

I have occasionally done the covers for my short pieces myself, but, even though I’ve been happy with some of my own designs, the one I did for “Angel Feather” always bugged me a little bit. Since I like the story so well, I finally decided I needed to get a professional cover for it. The one above was done by Julie Nicholls, who is both a fantasy writer and, as you can see, an excellent cover designer. This cover is far better than the one I did:angel-feather

(Yeah, what was I thinking?)

If you are an indie author, there is a lesson here. Unless you are an artist yourself, it’s typically better not to do your own covers if you can avoid it. As I said in an earlier post, your cover is the one advertisement that every potential customer is going to see. If you can afford a professional one, consider it a worthwhile promotional investment. These days there are many cover designers out there, so it’s usually possibleĀ to find one who is consistent with your budget and deadlines and who will work with you to achieve your vision.

(Please note that it could take a little time for this cover update to show on Amazon.)

  1. It must be hard getting a cover both the author and artist are satisfied with. It is worth the money for an eye-catching cover.

  2. What a great new cover, thanks for sharing! šŸ™‚ I can definitely see how it would be hard to choose a cover for your work!
