Cover Love

 I just came across this and was intrigued so I thought that I would share it.  I found a UK cover of The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan that I thought resembled Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. What do you think?  I wonder what goes into cover design.  I knew that some indie books used stock photos but I always thought that the bigger publishing houses used original photos for cover art.  Which use of the heart do you like better?

Whoa. I've never seen that cover before! I do love that series. I'm still trying to toughen up before I read Forbidden :) Thanks for sharing!

I think Forbidden's cover stands out more. The Dark and Hollow Places cover is dreary looking, too blah with the gray on gray.

I like them both :-)

As a cover designer I started realizing that even the big publishers use stock photos. In fact, most covers are stock photos now days. A good designer is able to alter it enough that you'll never see another like it though. Unfortunately in this case, they didn't.

I prefer the black and white. It makes me feel desolate. Very evocative.

Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:


I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.
