Down by the River ~ Two more covers for the Spirit Waters Trilogy by Lucretia T Knight (@Irina_Mknight)

Down by the River is the next soon-to-be-released volume of Lucretia T. Knight's Spirit AWaters Trilogy. And to take advantage of an available discount, we went ahead and readied the cover for book three, still to be written at the time of this post.
The unique challenge with this project was to utilize the same central graphic for each new volume while still making each unique to that particular book's plot needs and giving each one it's own look. Each cover has to 'work' on its own while remaining cohesive as a set. I am so not a fan of using the same exact image for each new volume, and just changing the text or color scheme. I find it lazy and potentially confusing to the readers. 
It would so aggravate me to grab the wrong book at a glance and have to go back and grab the right one. I image it would annoy book buyers, too. Or even worse, buyers not noticing the too slight variation, and not buying the sequels because they don't realize they are different books. We only have a click of the mouse to grab buyer attention. Why making harder for your book to sell?
But let me stop ranting and give you the blurb for Down by the River:…

Two new maps created for David Millar's (@DavidHMillar) CONALL book series.

covers by Ida at Amygdala Design

I really find creating maps for books a fun change of pace. These two maps are for David H Millar's CONALL book series, being published through A Wee Publishing Company
For this pair of illos, I had to reference really old maps of both Scotland and Ireland. What I found most challenging was how almost every map I could find was significantly different from every other map I found. So a lot of wingin' it was going on, lol.
Of course, I'm sure you've noticed the names above differ from the names you may know. Eriu is Ireland and Albu is Scotland.

Hello Aidana - Thank you for your friendship!

Congratulations on your book. The cover is real nice.

Sure thing :-)

Hope you can make it. But, I will understand if you are too busy making me a super awesome logo for The Draconos Saga.

Oh, you can also view your beautiful book cover here:

There are many indie authors on Wattpad that could really use a professional book cover by your design. I get lots of compliments and tell them all that it is a WillowRaven creation.

Hope a few of them have visited your site :-)

Aidana, I know that you mentioned that you do not always get your messages from this site. I hope that you get this one :-)

I just started a new forum based upon an author interview of an indie who has had tremendous success over on Wattpad. I hope that you can follow the link below and post a comment and/or question. Perhaps you can mention the importance of an awesome book cover? :-)
