Cover Reveal - Zombie Killa/Six Stories Short & Sweet
I just got the final proofs back for two covers from CL Smith of Humble Nations, my favorite cover designer. Spectacular.
Print resolution, great use of stock images, subtle shading and shadowing, excellent typography. I could go on and on.
But mostly, I want to say he's low pressure, and patient. Oh, and helpful, easy to deal with, and he makes changes painless. Not that he really needed to make any changes.
The logo design alone is worth more than I paid for the covers! I can't stress enough the importance of author branding. Think of it like this. Would you rather try and promote twenty different novels across seven genres, or just promote your name as an author?
