Cover Reveal for Hinting at Shadows

My first official cover design project with the LOVELY, TALENTED, HUMOROUS, FUN, SPIRITED Sarah Brentyn! Her book of short fiction will be available in November, and I can’t wait to share more about it!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the cover poll, texted, emailed, and sent carrier pigeons to tell me which cover they liked. I’m so grateful because, not only did you choose a favorite, you explained your decision. I got feedback about image, font, colors…

With all that interest in my cover, you made this writer very happy. Onward!

In the poll, the winner was #1 (tree and rainy window) with #4 (shadows and flowers) a close second. However, a lot of people who voted for #1 commented that they liked #4 as well for various reasons. Behind the scenes, #4 won by a landslide.

Do I need to say I chose #4?

Well…I will. And I did. We took some of the elements from #1 (including more black background for easier readability), changed the font, and tweaked a few things.

Voila. We have ourselves a cover. One I’m thrilled…

  2. Aw, Rachael. 💖 You’re awesome. Such a talented, generous, lovely person. (And patient. I should mention your patience with picky writers and geeks of the non-techie variety.) I love my cover. Thank you!

    1. If you mentioned you thought I was patient in front of my kids, you’d hear a bit of scoffing and possibly some grumbling under the breath from any one of them. haha THANK YOU for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the experience. I’m so excited for you!
