I asked myself that question when I was looking for ideas for a cover for my holiday romance, A Christmas Piano Tree.
You canâ€™t stick a picture of a Christmas tree on a pianoâ€¦and the story is a romance. Got to have gorgeous hero and pretty heroine on the coverâ€¦but where to start?
I love www.Dreamstime.com for stock photos, and since I have somewhat of an art background, I enjoy the process of cover design (once upon another life I studied design for the theatre). Here is a Spanish-theme sketch I did for a Vegas-type extravaganza.
Iâ€™ve always had a love for design since I was a kid and I drew pictures in my dadâ€™s encyclopedias (remember those?).
Here’s a sketch for a dress design I did at age 11. Somehow it has survived numerous moves around the country and overseasâ€¦
What kind of covers do you enjoy for Christmas books?
I totally enjoyed putting the cover together for â€œA Christmas Piano Tree,â€ the story of a pretty young war widow who re-discovers the magic of the holiday season with the help of a homeless vet and an old piano. I hope you like it.
