A to Z Book Cover Design gave us a book that stands out!
Not only was SalarSeif quick to produce a high-quality initial design, but he also provided multiple variations of designs at every step of the process. He was also very prompt in making the adjustments I asked for. Would recommend.
How baileyljoyce started their book cover journey
The Limelight Affair
Bailey L Joyce
Bailey L Joyce is a stay at home mom (a.k.a domestic goddess), who is turning her lifelong passion of writing into a published reality. The Limelight Affair is her debut novel and she has plans for at least four more novels in her future. When she is not writing, or managing her household (husband, two children and a mature German Shepherd pup), she can be found on her mountain bike, down hill skis, or resting with a book and Netflix.
What started as an act became a perfect cover story.
Piper Sullivan’s plan on finishing her bachelor’s degree at home in Newfoundland is uprooted when she is recruited by an American University to play on their woman’s basketball team, a lifelong dream of hers. Piper quickly adjusts to life on her own while managing the big city life, responsibilities as a proficient student and dedicated athlete.
Talent may have brought her to New York but pure luck presented Parker Michaelson, an up and coming actor making waves in the Hollywood scene who introduces her into a seductive world of wealth and fame. Piper struggles to have the two worlds co-exist and to maintain a steady personal, emotional and moral compass. That was until a simple request of escorting Parker to one of his press events began a smouldering romance that crafted an interwoven web of hidden lies and blatant truths.
Woman between the age of 16-40, who is looking for the "not so generic" romance novels.
Book cover type
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (what was Amazon CreateSpace)
I like how it shows the setting, introduces a character and draws the reader in to learn more about the book.
Simple, beautiful colours and design
I like the couple on the cover interacting together but do not like the entire focus. This to me says young adult book, but does not tell me how it differs from another novel, would like more background to tell a little bit of the story to draw me in.

Photo I used for book aesthetics (not mine from Unsplash.com), other than the wedding ring, I thought perfectly captured what I envisioned Parker and Piper and what they should look like on the cover.
Beautiful colours, leaves mystery in the character, creates setting and entices readers to find out more.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
A book cover that pops, grabs your attention and stands out from the rest. I am looking for a book cover that bloggers, bookstagramers would love to own, photograph and write about.
Imagery: Red carpet setting, new and young Hollywood characters, press, media, camera flashes, luxury.
Overall vision: I envisioned the young couple on the red carpet sharing a moment together amongst the backdrop of camera flashes and rows upon rows of photographers. Content, longing looks exchanged between characters. The environment around the main characters are busy but the main characters should be calm, relaxed in each other's presence.
