I have a review site, and I love to read books :D!

Then, I decided 2 weeks ago that I'd use my experience at designing to try create book covers for authors. It's a new and humble site, any comments would be appreciated <3 :

Hi my name is Tina Joy I just self published my first book Family Plot on amazon.

Amazon Family Plot Tina Joy

Kelly had no idea that she had any living relatives let alone relatives with a huge estate. When she receives the news that she has been named in their will she drops everything and goes to Salem Massachusetts to hear the reading. Little does she know that what she is about to inherit is much more than an estate and her life may hang in the balance because there is a serial killer who wants the inheritance all to himself. Will she be able to stop him and prove what he has done or will she become his next victim?


5.0 out of 5 stars very good book fast moving,
Theresa "Terry" (Cleveland, Ohio) - Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Family Plot (Kindle Edition)

Read entire book in two nights. Interesting and fast moving. Looking forward to Tina Joy's next book. This book kept my interest and took several interesting turn of events. I loved the characters she created. I could relate to them and how I would feel if I were in their situation. I recommend if you like Mary Higgins Clark type books. Right there!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!,

I recently joined a cover art contest (my first ever made cover art is as attached) so I'm new to this, but I had real fun on it :D Like, tweaking the lighting in Photoshop and the colors and fonts etc... From then on I decided to try making cover arts as well, but what dimensions and resolution would a good cover be?

I agree- it's a little difficult if you're new at creating covers to make a visually aesthetic design.  It takes alot of practice.  And I agree with you that you want to make it match the theme of your book.

Hi there! Hey, that flickr idea is great! So far I haven't designed any of my covers but that might be the perfect place to start if I ever need to. I also think a cover should be intriguing, or scary (depending on your genre) but definitively visually arresting, so people will feel drawn to your book above others next to it.

Thanks :)  I agree about the cover matching the story.  And it is important to be careful about copyright infringement.  I was reading another blogger who said that she gets all her photos off of flickr under the creative commons liscence.  I thought that was an excellent idea because their database has literally millions of free photos that you can utilize as long as you give the owner credit somewhere in your work.

The book cover according to me should reflect the story in the book. I have seen many whose book art doesn't match the actual book and that is misleading to the reader. High quality graphics, bigger font is also desirable - not the bold, fat, pink font, of course. :) Manipulated stock photos are ok as long as there is no copyright infringement. 

Having looked at your blog, I must say your cover pages look really good. Keep up the good work!
