It’s always good to know when you’re in over your head. While I was trying to come up with an idea for my Historical romance series, I realized I was too drawn to dark covers and themes to make a good romance. Since I planned to make this series at least 24 books, I decided I needed help.
Being connected to other writers I’d been slowly amassing names of cover artists and sifting through them to find the designs that appealed to me.
I’d worked with designers before but usually the publisher dictates who they are and approves the final design. This time it was all me. Sure, I’ve written romances but they were paranormal romances and given that they were set around the Great War, they’re darker than many.
In the end, I was fortunate to go with Gabrielle Prendergast at coveryourdreams.net She came up with the poppy and barbed wire since they are pretty much icons of World War 1.
I really love the cover and can’t wait to get to work on the rest of the series.
