Cover

Post by bluemax65 » Wed May 13, 2020 1:28 am

So I have read all the chapters, available so far, and, just for me, I have edited them. The American English really jars when I'm reading the story.
I then merged all chapters into one (on-going) book, then converted the saved document as a mobi file, so that I could read it on my tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab A. I use Aldico, as my main books app, at least for those books I don't buy from Amazon.

The thing is that when I look through the library of the app, the books that look a little off or lame are those that don't have a proper cover, and only have the name of the book/the author.

So I thought I'd do something about it and created a cover. I hope Fel doesn't get upset with me.

I trolled the interwebs trying to find appropriate pictures for the different types of dragon. If someone has a better picture or pictures, I would love to see them. The title of the book has been written using the font, dragon alphabet. This just a screenshot. Let me know what you think.

Actually, I kinda doodled out a cover for "Earth Bond" at one time. It was a volcano surrounded by water, unfortunately I can't seem to locate my file copy at the moment, of course I think I've changed computers at least twice since the last chapter was posted.

I have been thinking of something similar. There is too much white space on that cover. I wanted to put in some islands in the background and make the pics of the dragons a bit smaller.

You comment about a volcano, is the perfect thing to add to this. I'll have to see if I can find the right kind of pic.

A suggestion about other backgrounds. Farm land, the volcano idea, . Or a background of some buildings, with the "jungle" setting on one of the islands in the Hawaiian chain? This is kind of what I am talking about.

I think something similar but looking in from the water seeing buildings with the woods in the background of the photo. Since the story mentions a volcano I though the black sand beach was appropriate.

Just a thought.
