The current theme set by Jake gives me an opportunity just too good to miss to pick brains on the subject of what I should think of adding to my proposed book cover for one of the novels I am currently writing, and where to put it. I enjoy a personal involvement in the design of my covers, even if they are ultimately fine-tuned by professionals.
This picture which I took and edited as a ‘working model’ gives a good idea of an important part of the setting, but it leaves the title as the only quick clue to the genre. I have been thinking that it needs more than that – but what? What addition would subtly suggest a ‘fairy-themed’ fantasy adventure to you? Or do you think it would be a mistake to meddle, and that the back cover blurb is enough?
