Today, I did the covers for the Arhel Trilogy.
Fire in the Mist
Bones of the Past
Mind of the Magic
I wanted something striking but simple for these books—and I wanted the central images to be meaningful. So I went with Ariss, the keyu, and a dragon. The toughest part of these was coming up with an appropriate title design and name layout without getting too friggin’ frou-frou with the font. And I still wanted that touch of gold to tie these together subliminally with the suspense stuff.
I’ll probably have something in that gold on every cover…though it might be very slight.
