I’ve been plugging away in the background, getting the ARCs ready for The Flames of Shadam Khoreh. The e-ARCs are ready, and now it’s time to get the print ARCs ready. As part of that effort, I need to get the full cover designed. I had the e-cover, which is essentially the front cover of a print version, but I didn’t have the spine and back cover work done yet. I’ve been plugging away, working to get the back copy to read nicely (and enticingly!), as well as incorporating the logo I worked up a while back.
Well, without further ado, here’s what I have so far.
Obviously this is still a touch preliminary. I need to eventually removed the “Advanced Reader Copy” image and put in some quotes, plus the barcode for the ISBN, but I think the basic design is there. And I like it quite a bit. It’s attractive to the eye (to my eye, at least).
How about your eye, though? Any thoughts?
UPDATE: I’ve altered the Advanced Reading Copy image after some great advice from Jefferson Smith. Thanks, Jefferson!
