I’ve updated the look for the Beholder series! There’s a business-y reason for this: the covers don’t scream ‘occult,’ so some folks thought they were getting a regency romance or whatever. Oops! As a result, I’ve added new icons to make the covers look witchy.
Now, I know some folks like to see the ‘inside story’ on how this stuff happens, so I’ll fill you in on the process before showing you the final.
We start with the CONCEALED cover, since this is the one that seems to cause the most questions. Here it is in original format:
I ask our designer to add some witchy looking icons. The result is partly cool, partly an explosion of neon. Also, the images don’t say ‘occult’ to me.
Where we get more icons, lose the neon and still don’t necessarily say ‘occult.’
Where the designer decides to have some green blood drip everywhere.
Where we lose the drips and fine-tune the images. Huzzah!
And here are all the currently-released covers! Occult me, baby!
