1984: Cover Makeover #9

So I was late to the party yesterday, but I so excited about this challenge! I drew a lot of inspiration from older versions of this novel. I loved the red, white, and black color scheme, and the intense phrases used on some of the novels. I decided to utilize as many of them as possible, using different fonts to emphasize a sense of anarchy behind certain phrases. I hope you enjoy what I’ve done with this classic.

The Green Mile: Cover Makeover #7

I stumbled across a fun prompt this week where participants get to remake a book cover already published. This week’s challenge was Stephen King’s The Green Mile.

I absolutely loved this book. For me, the country/rural aspect of the story was important, and the scene of the electric chair always pops into my head first and foremost, followed quickly by the flies. Oh, the flies.

So, I hope you enjoy my creative take on this book cover.

By nature, the writing world is a lonely place. Authors need friends and companionship and a community, not only to draw inspiration from, but to help support them in a field that doesn’t exactly make it easy. Here’s what you should keep in mind about your self-publishing friend:

  • Most likely, they are doing it all on their own. All the writing, the editing, the designing, the promotion, the promotion, the promotion.
  • They think what they have written is the absolute best thing out there right now. It’s new. It’s daring. It’s theirs, and they’ve been working their butts off on it for so long they forgot their own kid’s birthday until the last moment.
  • They’ve probably spent more money on the book then they care to admit.
  • They are basically tossing 50,000 some words out into the ether and praying that out of the millions of titles on Amazon…
