The Flames of Shadam Khoreh Cover Wrap

By  |  10 Comments

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!

    It’s got such a classic look to it. But my favorite thing is the BB logo. It’s so Tolkienesque.

      That’s *exactly* what I was shooting for. Thanks!

      Btw, it’s quite small, but did you notice the P in there as well?

      Thanks, Steve! See if you can see the full “BPB” in the logo. It’s subtle, but it’s there…

    Advanced and not Advance reading copy?

    And I see another time jump is in store.

      Good catch, Paul. Thanks. And yes, a bit of a leap before the fun begins…
