The first of a new feature new on Workaday Reads, I have June Stevens here with an interview about the cover of her novel Voodoo Moon.

Voodoo Moon

What was your intention for the cover?
I wanted to catch the readers eye and make them want to read the books blurb. I also wanted to get as much of an urban fantasy and paranormal feel as I could.

How did you create the cover?
I used a combination of several stock photos in a graphics program.

Are you happy with the end result?
I am extremely happy with the results, and I’ve had many compliments.

Is there anything you would change?
The only thing I would change if I could would be to have a model of my choice instead of a stock photo model.

What do you think the cover says about your book?
I think it portrays a strong, confident heroine with something evil lurking in the background.

Zombies aren’t supposed to exist, yet they are turning up all over Nash City. As a member of the Elite Black Blade Guard, Fiona Moon is tasked with hunting down the most dangerous Paranorm criminals. Now she must find out who is kidnapping mages and sucking the life energy from their bodies. To make matters worse, she has to work with the one man that embodies everything she despises.

Ian Barroes is the rich founder and head of the Necromancers Guild and a professor of Necromantic Studies at the Academy of Science and Magic. There is one thing he wants more than anything else in the world… Fiona.

They each hold secrets that could destroy them but could also be the key to destroying the evil Voodoo priest, Bokor. They must learn to trust each other track down Bokor before more innocents are taken, and murdered. To make matters worse, when Fiona becomes a target of the evil madman she is lured into his trap. Now she and Ian have to fight for survival and their very souls.

What do you think of the cover? Does it make you want to pick up the book?

  1. Thanks so much for hosting my book cover. I’m really interested in your readers’ feedback.

  2. Like most new features, I forgot a part – my thoughts on the cover.

    I love this cover. It strongly screams UF to me, with a strong heroine. I love the colours, but the face in the moon is creepy. If it was a regular moon, I’d like it that much better.

    • Ahh, you see I put the creepy face in the moon on purpose… the bad guy is quite creepy and I really wanted an ominous feel to the cover. Though, admittedly, I did leave creepy elements out of the covers for the next two books in the series.
