Book Covers: Cast Your Vote!
That is, THE COVER FOR MY BOOK! That’s right, Flashes of War is being designed by the book publishing majors at Loyala University Maryland’s Apprentice House as we speak and I received the first round of possible covers on Tuesday. I’ve narrowed it down to two, I think, and am very curious for reader feedback.
The designer is working on an additional version that would have an image/photo of an Afghan boy in the shadow of the toy American soldier–so the shadow would be the same shape, but rather than being a shadow it would be an image of a boy. Also, they’re going to add “short stories” somewhere in there, to indicate the book is a work of fiction. This is all in the draft stage, but I’ve never done this before and would appreciate any first impressions–from thumbs up, to thumbs down, to an entirely new design suggestion. I’m all ears!
