Val -

I do like those colors. Which reminds me. If I'm going for that style, I adore this type of image -



It also occurs to me that this is really a sci-fi romance rather than an actual sci-fi. So I should be looking at images in that area to see how to fit in and then stand out.

The covers in that area of Kindle look pretty amateur to me so maybe it won't be hard to stand out against most of them. Lots of time travel and werewolf stuff in here. So I have to make it clear it's about space, not just strange-on-Earth stuff. I like the ones with a sword against a nebula - I do have swords in my book and the nebula speaks of space. But how to combine that with this feel ...

Yes, it catches my interest much more now. I think especially if it's an SF romance rather than just SF, it needs a couple in the cover art like you've done to suggest that.

Seeking beta readers for my new novella Into The Wasteland. Here's a very rough mockup of the cover idea. #dystopian Here's a blurb:

....

She doesn't know why she's shuffling down a sterile corridor in line with the roughest hoodlums, miscreants, and serial killers she's ever seen. She doesn't know why, when she's handed a gun, that she instantly knows the safety is on and the magazine is fully loaded. She doesn't know, once those massive metal gates before her swing open, what she will face on the other side.

All she knows is that somehow, whatever it takes, she has to survive.

.......

Getting closer on Aquarian Awakenings - my first sci-fi romance. Thoughts on the cover? It's clean / teen-friendly. If anybody wants a preview copy, let me know - I'd love some last minute feedback!

Here's the latest cover. Another moon to give it that sci-fi feel and brighter colors



Ideas?

The book is now live in Kindle, Kobo, Goodreads, Lulu, and SmashWords smile.
