Sometimes plans don’t work out.

I got the proof copy of Kiss of The Fey today. I was excited… but then I wasn’t.

You might not be able to tell, but the font looks bad up close. It looks even worse on the back, but there’s nothing I can do about it because the stock image I used for it was only so big. I can’t make it bigger to make the cover into a higher quality image. So I’m going back to the original candle stock image I had and am using that.

Sigh. Whatever. I want to to look good, even if it isn’t as flashy. I just want to get everything ready and formatted. I’m annoyed because I had at least twenty people who promised to read it and give me feedback and I’ve had one person read almost to the end of the first chapter and she basically said that she hated my main character’s name. I’m releasing it September 1st whether or not I get actual feedback on it, so if everyone says it sucks in reviews I’ll just make the changes and release a second edition, I guess. I don’t know. (Official cover is over on my author blog.)

  1. I sympathise. Something similar happened to me – it’s really hard to know how a cover will look on the printed book until you see the actual printed book. I do think that image is very good – have you tried just changing the font?

    • Yeah, it still doesn’t come out right. Maybe if I had a professional photo editing program or I was a real graphic designer I could make it work, but I just have to go with what will make the book look more professional, not the prettier stock image :p
