Let’s make a cover for my new novel; a step-by-step blog series, and I want your input!… part 12…

mockup 2

The newest mock-up of just the front cover. I added some ships. And some flowers. But now, the flowers sort of clash with the patches I added to our princess’s jacket. Too much red, maybe? I did change the jacket more, to make it look less like a modern military jacket. I changed the cammo pattern, and got rid of the pockets. I also elongated the helmet. Oh, and I added wooden buttons to the jacket, which does help, I think.

I put the title over one of the ships. This isn’t the final layout, I just want some feedback. I will add some ships to the back cover. I can squish the title over to the right to get it off the ships. Or make the ships smaller. What do you think?

    It’s hard to read “PR” in “Princess” because of the ship behind it. And you’ll need all the PR you can get.

    Any idea how Gerry of Inchcock Today/ gerrynotingham.com is? It has been a time since he’s posted. Trying gerrynottingam.com, I get a message that the site can’t be reached, and early April is the latest post that comes up when I try Inchcock Today. Giving his many medical issues, I fear the worst or hospitalization at the best.

    Too much red. Either pull it from the bushes or the uniform… And maybe do fewer ships too? And then you wouldn’t have to worry about moving or resizing the title?
