Behind-the-Scenes: Early Cover Designs.
A special thanks to the author of aftermathasagabegins.wordpress.com who shares the evolution of the cover of his book from his first concept sketch through influences of other artists to his final design. It’s interesting to follow how the reality evolves from the first idea in the writer’s mind to the final interpretation.
As writers, we create beyond the words on the pages. Finding the right artist to help us translate our story into an encapsulating image is a labor unto itself. I appreciate this little look behind the scenes to prep me for what lies ahead.

Thank you for sharing this! I loved his hand-drawn picture, but the transformation to the final cover was fun to see. 🙂
One is amazed of the A to Z of it all. You get to see it all the time, but it was a real eye-opener to me!
Faye, thank you so much for the mention! I never thought that post would have such an impact on someone! And thank you for caring & thinking enough of my work to blog about it! That really means a lot to me!
M.S. Fowle, thank you for taking in interest in my work as well!
You are welcome. I appreciate your sharing the process of how your cover art came about. It;s something that indie writers don’t think about when working on their first manuscript.
