As you might be aware, I released my grimdark (fancy for horror fantasy) novella, Only the Guilty Live, on Kindle late in 2018.
The story of a PTSD suffering soldier teaming up with several others, including a former slave, a dispossessed bigoted colonist who lost his family during the civil war, and a demon possessed child, to free a noble trapped in a besieged city, Only the Guilty Live came with a cover made by…me!
It’s an okay cover, as homemade covers go. It also is a well-known image – Goya’s Saturn Devouring His Son. I’ve never been 100% happy with it. A well-designed, striking cover draws attention, and I fear that my attempt did anything but achieve that goal.
So, to remedy that, I’ve been fortunate to have engaged the services of a Melbourne professional book cover designer, Onur Aksoy, who designed the new cover you see at the bottom of this post!
Onur can be reached here: https://www.onegraphica.com or Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/onegraphica or via his Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/onegraphica_bookcoverdesign/
I think you’ll agree that this new cover is a huge improvement on the original – it’s moody and brooding, which matches the tone of the novella. It’s also very well composed.
Massive thanks to Onur, for agreeing to work on this for me – he was easy to work with and provided a product he’s proud of, and I’m delighted to have grace my story.
The quality of his work speaks for itself and at the higher tiers, it’s outstanding!
