I present the cover of my YA book, Raven...

17.4.11


Well, I've finally finished the front cover of Raven. Unfortunately I have been quite limited on what I could and couldn't do using the online picture program, pixlr. So sadly I have been unable to include some of your suggestions. The most important one though, was the inclusion of a flower. I chose a yellow daffodil as the colour yellow is significant to the main character, Lilly, in the beginning of the story.
I tried lots of different fonts, I got rid of the feathers completely, I moved the feathers... but none of them seemed to work as much as this does, so here is what I'm going for.
I am hoping to have Raven online and available to buy at the beginning of May, but I will obviously keep you up to date on how that goes!
Thanks again for all your support and help with the cover design. I hope you, and other readers, will like it.

  11. Hi Suzy,

    I like your cover. It's quite different to lots I see out there. Also, it suggests mystery which is a good thing.

    Good luck with your book,

    Darrell.
