NotACat was the perfect designer match for me. He took a very broad idea and narrowed it down, and made it come to life. His imagery and interpretation were exactly what I wanted my cover to convey. NotACat is a five star designer in my book!
- Deanne Designs
The design turned out great. Unfortunately there were some times when Deanne wasn't as responsive as I would have liked, with a lot of time between my messages and her replies. Sometimes, I know, this was due to life events that were unavoidable. Nonetheless, I think the cover turned out great, and Deanne was positive and a pleasure to work with. I recommend her work highly.

Ran a contest for a Facebook page cover. Beck's first design was perfect. He captured exactly what I wanted - a sense of mystery and magic. He was very quick with the final design. A good experience.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I write erotic/spicy romance novels. The target audience is African American women interested in interracial (black woman white man)/multicultural relationships.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The title of this book is “Love Hard, Love Deep”.
It is an interracial romance between a Black female and a White male.
It is the story of broken relationships that have occurred between family and the two main characters.
A photo surfaces of the twin sister of the heroine (Nylah), abducted at the age of eight, thought dead for the past twenty years. Nylah contacts her ex-boyfriend; a former Marine/Special Operations turned private investigator for help.
She walked away from their relationship three years before and left him brokenhearted and confused. The last thing he expects is to see her walk back into his life, asking for his help. The question is, can the two of them put their difficult past behind them and work together to find her sister?
The title is chosen to reflect the deep emotional state of the male character who gave his all to the woman he loved, because that’s who he is…loyal, honest and dependable.
I would like the imagery to convey the feeling of a tortured soul, brooding look (man) sucked into helping the woman he loves, even though it’s killing him to be near her…if there is such a way.
Head shots/faces only are acceptable. Body shots are acceptable as well.
Examples of covers I like: “Dangerous Hearts” by Mia Caldwell; Dipping into Sin (1 and 2) by DJ Parker; and “Once an Alpha” by Callie McKenna.
