I was trying to come up with a cover idea for A Child of the Pink Moon. Since I am nearing the end of that short novella, this has become important. This is not some orphan story that I don't know what to do with (see: Born Girl on Roma).
So. Nel is the man character of the novella, and her power is fire. That is not a spoiler. At first I produced something as simple as this:
This is the sort of cover you might expect on a short novella that isn't expected to make much.
These two versions show that while I can cut a silhouette and paste it on a public domain image, I am pretty horrible when it comes to making titles.
I STINK at that.
The good news for me is that Josh Hayes kindly gave me a wonderful cover worthy of a full novel. (Which I won't post right now). I don't know how to thank him and I hope the novella is worthy when it is finished!
This symbol from my covers still has some promo value though.
----------------------- A little news ------
You can watch Josh Hayes and Scott Moon interview British science fiction author Ralph Kern (Endeavor and Erebus) on Youtube. The chat-interview is about an hour and those watching live on blab.im are also able to use a chat window to ask their own questions!
On Friday you can even tune in live and watch them interview Nick Cole, author of CTRL, ALT, REVOLT! at their www.Blab.im channel. I certainly plan to watch on Friday, maybe we can see each other in the chat window.
I'll post a link to their blab.im channel when I find it.
