e-Book Cover Design Award Winner for December 2014 in Nonfiction | How Schopenhauer Got Me Through My Mid Life Crisis designed by Dane & Brittany at EbookLaunch.com | JF: Love the way the designer has brought all the elements on this cover into a vibrant whole including title, art, and background. Combining energy and humor makes this cover magnetic.
e-Book Cover Design Award Winner for December 2014 in Fiction | The Blood of Brothers designed by James T. Egan of Bookfly Design. | JF: Attracts the eye and won’t let go. You can almost physically sense the pent up energy, and the hint of menace only makes it more attractive. Strong impact and a direct message make this a winner. (The “Sycamore Moon” is series branding.)
Five Weeks in the Amazon designed by Rory Doyle | JF: A strong cover that cleverly makes the assertive type part of the illustration, drawing us into the image too. And that simmering pot is evocative, it just makes you want to know more. ★
1929: Book One designed by The Thatchery. | JF: It can be hard to combine more than two images and end up with a cohesive look, but this cover succeeds, and part of that is the careful color decisions and the mood that’s so well expressed. Looks like an epic, something you’d like to really settle down with. ★
