How a cover starts. For the first time, I am actively involved in not only arranging, but also designing the cover models of a book. Above are Tristan and Leyli, from my soon to be released book “When We Were Kings”. As you might be able to tell, it’s about gladiators.
My artist has been working hard to get in the ball park of what I asked for. Tristan needs to be a proper gladiator. Leyli needs to have second hand weapons and attire. He’s fit and toned, she’s weak but resilient. Most of all, don’t want her to look like she is willing to cower. I think we’re getting close. Now to have a few tweaks, make my artist want to kill me a little more, and see how it all turns out for the finished project. (I’ll be sure to post that as well!)
And thanks to Jason for working so hard to fit in every detail I said had to be there. Promise, I’ll make it up to you!
