So, I've decided to release an old novella I'd had sitting on my computer as a Kindle Direct eBook. Normally, I wouldn't consider the self-publishing route, but I figured that, while I'm waiting to hear back from agents on another novel I'm pitching, I might as well get a story out there to the world and (hopefully) make a little money in the process.
I plan on releasing it sometime this month, although I am not exact as to when, but it'll be relatively soon.
Now, my creative abilities don't venture far from the written word, so when I went into designing potential covers, I was a little bewildered. There was a lot to consider, and I'm trying to take everything into account (i.e. marketing, themes, etc.) and I've finally managed to create one I kinda liked.
Now, It's super simplistic, but I still feel it yields some power. The all-black background and white lettering shows contrast, and the single rose sums up the story very well.
I can't say that this will be the exact cover, but I wanted to see what you guys thought. I've attached the cover to this post. Let me know what you think!
UPDATE: I've attached a few more covers along with the first
