Worlds of Magic and Fantasy

Cover Design Underway

The other day I tweeted that writing a book is like building a car. Editing is like adding paint and accessories. And Promotion is like pushing that car up a 10 mile hill. 

Somewhere in between editing and promoting comes the cover design. Maybe that's the wax and polish that make it shine.

Anyway, I don't know what's going to come of cover, but whatever it is I'm sure I'll be excited about it.

Meanwhile, I thought I'd post some urban fantasy covers that inspire me.

Technically, I guess this is a YA book rather than Urban Fantasy. Don't care. LOVE this cover, designed by Cyantope Book Architects: http://www.cyanotype.ca/
