The New Paranormal Suspense Covers

I finished the following covers for my upcoming novels today:

Midnight Rain

Midnight Rain: "He'll NEVER forget you..."
Midnight Rain: “He’ll NEVER forget you…”

I See You

I See You: "Someone's watching..."
I See You: “Someone’s watching…”

Last Girl Dancing

Last Girl Dancing: "Don't talk to strangers..."
Last Girl Dancing: “Don’t talk to strangers…”

Night Echoes

Night Echoes: "Your past is waiting..."
Night Echoes: “Your past is waiting…”

Because of a bit of a financial bump, I’m pushing hard to get all the backlist up in the next couple of months. To my amazement (because I thought exactly the opposite), I think the suspense novels are going to take the longest. I’m having to go through them and edit to bring the late-draft manuscript versions I have up to the published versions.

The scans don’t have to be rewritten. They just have to be edited, and my guys (and in two cases, my co-authors) are working on that.

So my release schedule is going to change completely, and will probably start with either the Arhel trilogy or the Devil’s Point trilogy.

But there will be books soon. 😀

I think the problem is the _viewpoint_ of the diver. While most divers are familiar with this upright-from-slightly-below position, most people might look at it and thing ‘person standing on glass with duckfeet’. Perhaps a slight angle, so it looks like a more familiar ‘swimming pose’ would work?

How’s the editing coming along for e-book release on these by the way?

I’ve read these suspense books and they are my favorite. And I don’t just mean my favorite by you.
As for the covers – I like the format very much. As Nathalie said, the bottom left text is difficult to read.
Also, even though I love the blood and broken glass on the “I See You” cover, there is something about the diver image that isn’t doing it for me. I can’t quite put my finger on it. It might be just that I don’t remember diving playing a major part of that story.

These look lovely! I’m anxious to see the fantasy books too 🙂

Marsha, here is a great post about formatting e-books:

It’s really not rocket science, I’m sure you can do it yourself if you follow this step by step! ^^

There are only two minor problems for me: the green text at the bottom left is not readable in a thumbnail cover, and the white text under your name is going over the picture in the circle at some places. Otherwise, I love them, they look great! Good job! ^^

They look amazing! And you’ve got a theme/’brand’ so someone glancing at the cover amongst a list of the latest kindle releases would immediately recognise them as yours.
I’m…still at square one. Trying to find an affordable a) servicethat will convert word files to ebook format b)cover design that will accept an author based in the UK. A US company I found didnt cover people over here 🙁

First, Holly, thanks for the referral. Marsha, we have a large number of UK authors in our roster, ranging from Steve Lawhead to Geraldine Evans, so we’re happy to work with European (and, frankly, any) authors. We can also help you find a cover designer, if you need one.

Holly, I love the theme of the covers, but the back-highlighted/luminous text on the lower left-hand side does need to be made more readable. I look forward to receiving them for conversion!

Great covers for the suspense crowd! Are you also self-publishing your back list of fantasy novels? Those are my favorite.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
