Nice work as usual Adrijus. Your covers are awesome. They caught my eyes perusing Amazon thrillers before I even knew they were your covers.

Great idea on the guide, book cover design is a subject that can be quiet intimidating for writers. I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks Alan! Appreciate it! ;)

Yeah, I hope this will help out a lot. It will be available for download free so I hope lots of authors will get it.

    I was looking at some of these and they made me want to write a story just so I could buy one.  :)


    Ha, I already have. It's a good thing I came across the site because I have a story I had titled "Lethal Journey" and was coming close to publishing, so I have changed my title.

     Either of his covers for Wayward Journey, or Lethal Journey would have been ideal, especially the Wayward Journey, where the person seems to be walking a road between a border crossing.

    Haha.. wow. It's a great title, I'm surprised it wasn't published before!

    Those two are in my all-time favorites. Wayward Journey is still probably no.1.

    Yeah it is a great title, but I'm happy with my new one. But yeah, Wayward Journey is cool. I have mocked up a cover and posted it on my blog, but it screams self-designed. At some stage I'm, going to need a cover designing and looking at these, I may just take the plunge here.

    New one's pretty good too!


    And yeah, cover needs help. Premade cover can be great start if you can find a match somewhere.

    I've been writing a pulp serial (Friends Are Forever aka The Twighlight Manor Series)(a horror/sci-fi cross genre) since 1978 (there are over 200 stories in the series now). It's previously only been available in magazines and very limited run chap books. For the 35th anniversary I'm compiling the fan faves and re-releasing them as a series of short story collections (5 to 10 stories per volume depending on word count of each story), while adding new stories to each collection, as well. With ebooks in vogue now magazine/pulp sales have plummeted all across the board and most mags are out of business now. It's getting harder and harder to find mags that still print horror/sci-fi shorts any more, thus why the move to getting the series out of mags and onto Kindle. The series has never been available in book format (or ebook format) before, so this is a really big change.

    Anyways, I've been looking for a cover artist for the series, but every where I looked nothing "matched" what I had in mind. Readers who know the series have a very specific idea about what it is, the feel of it, so I wanted to find that same gritty gothic cyber punk horror sort of feel for the cover art. Your work is the most amazing I've seen, it is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I'm so definitely using your covers for the series.

    Becoming the best horror writer in the world is my goal, so looks like we can strive for this together...just ordered 9 covers btw.  :P


    Nice! Keep us posted on those covers and when your ebooks are available for purchase, sounds like great stuff.

    Wow.. incredible milestone! I'm honored to be a part of it. You've set the record of most covers bought at once too! I really hope they will do great.

    I'd be very happy to help out as much as I can for such goal! ;)

    Wow, your covers freakin' rock. Love 'em. So many ebooks out there just have images (usually a person or couple) slapped on top of another image. Yours are truly professional.

    Here are some of recent covers I've finished up in last few weeks, one for fellow KBoards member and 4 for a small new Publisher in NY.


    Hope you guys like them.

    Planning to release some new premade covers on weekend or next week, about time to do so but I'm swamped at the moment.

    RBC:

    Listen, I tend to do my own covers because I can play around with them and get them just where I want them. Therefore, I don't usually buy premade covers, but I just wanted to take the time to tell you that I absolutely LOVE your work. These are, for me, some of the most outstanding premade designs I've ever come across. Your covers truly evoke an emotional response from me.

    I've already sent two other writers to check out your site today, and I hope that translates into some sales for you. I may even have to start re-thinking my DIY cover strategy and buy one of yours next time!
