How much input did you have?
I had 100% input. She asked me straight out if I had an idea of what I wanted my cover to look like and she went from there. Though she had to do some editing after her first attempt the second came out amazing and it came out better then I envisioned.
What was the process to have the cover created?
I am unsure. I imagine she took some pictures off the computer and digitally created and formatted her own to fit the likeness of the vision I had for the book.
Are you happy with the end result?
Beyond happy! She not only created the cover to my liking it went beyond my expectations and she even did the back which looks just as amazing as the front.
Is there anything you would change?
Not a thing. I love the cover the way it is and I think it can really speak to a potential reader and draw them in.
What do you think the cover says about your book?
I think the book cover says exactly what’s in the book. It really stands out and delivers a gritty, gory and mysterious type of look to it. It shapes and represents what the book is about. The visual on the front and back almost tell a short story about the book before you even open it up to read it.

The year is 1870. Five years after the Civil War has ended. Many states, cities and small towns are still recovering, one of these places is the town of Toomswood. The town has been taken over by sly corrupt tycoon Javier “Bones” Jones. Things only get worse for the town when a mysterious stranger rides into town making an offer and cutting a deal with Jones. The man gives Jones super dexterity and point pin shooting accuracy among other like abilities, however in return he has placed a curse on Jones, making him a leader to the Undead unbeknown to his knowledge.
After finding out his curse Jones takes a liking to it and soon kills to turn his gang into an army. The mysterious man then tells Jones he will also lead Undead Civil War soldiers who are now bloodthirsty madmen. It is up to Emerson Shaw, a quiet humble young man with his own personal demons to stop Jones and his men. Along with his best friend and others who will join them, Shaw must find a way to stop Jones from destroying and terrorizing the town and turning it into a literal walking Ghost town.
My Thoughts: I’m torn on the cover. The genre is easy to determine, and while the images are okay, the fonts are really hard to read. I think with a simpler, easier to read font, the cover would stand out more.
