Behind the Cover: This one was a fun, and frustrating, cover to design. I knew what I wanted, something sleek and sexy, and fairly icy in coloration.
Because the primary focus of the story is on two women, and a guy only has some baring on the storyline, I decided not to work him into the cover and instead went with the two womena and the wolf.
The wolf's eyes were interesting. Originally, it had brown/golden eyes. I got to play around with turning them a vibrant blue, and then trying to keep the one over the black jacket from standing out more than the one just in the white fur.
Behind the Cover: Here again, I wanted to go for sexy while at the same time getting the flavor of hockey in there. Rather than worry about a uniform that might not match what was in the story, I went with a beat up, seen better days, practive stick and puck against a black background, and white ice.
The final cover this post is EMBRACE THE MOMENT, the beginning to
Mahalia Levey's Semper Paratus series.
Behind the Cover: Mahalia Levey asked for a blending of the duty of the coast guard and the passion of a couple.
As this is the start of a series, I wanted to make sure that the set-up was such that I could continue the look with future books.
The female's eyes had to have some color change, since the original model had hazel eyes. So I got to play with features, and turn her eyes blue.
