Introducing my revamped cover

I posted my cover on Kindleboards and got a lot, I mean a lot of great and positive comments (I'm so happy). But I also got a few suggestions. For example, that I should make my name bigger (True, otherwise what's the point right?) and that I should add a few more elements of fantasy. Also, the white area on the left was too sharp.

With the help of one of my writer friends, I revamped the cover. I played around with fonts (now the cursive font is only used for the Ts), the white area has disappeared and we now have a magic tear(Thanks to my friend and follower, Carol Riggs)for a touch of more fantasy. Oh, I also added bevels and shadows to make it more alive. Finally, I moved two butterflies in the top image.
Pheeeew, I think I'm finally done with the cover. Next comes the blurb.

Here are three finalists. Only one can win. Which do you like best?


  1. Hmmm...I really like the first one the best. The font for your name really matches the feel of the images and the font for the title.

  2. Beautiful! I think the first one is best - the light seems to fit perfectly with the letters in front of it :)

  3. They're all beautiful! You might want to look at them side-by-side as thumbnails (ie, the size they show up on a Kindle library). I did that with mine and reluctantly gave up the subtlest because as a thumbnail it didn't pop. And then even more reluctantly tweaked the font to make the thumbnail as strong as it could be. I still like my first (subtle, pretty) cover best, but the cover I went with has a stronger thumbnail.

  4. I have to say, I enjoy the improvements. It looks like you saturated the colors and they pop out a lot more. Maybe you sharpened it up too. Hmm. Either way, I love the improvements. :) Now I just need to improve mine, lol.

  5. Oh, but I don't like that sparkle in her eye though. Didn't even notice it. But I do like the first one better.
