Winter Bayne is a cover designer and writer I met on Facebook a few months back. We hit it off when we began talking back and forth about every day life, writing, and her covers. They were striking.
I glance around at covers to see what other authors are doing, what readers seem to like, and gather ideas for my own covers. Deciding that it looked too difficult to try to do and write a novel, edit the novel, and publish it, I outsourced. Of course, Winter Bayne was the only option.
Every single in her portfolio gripped me. She has a way of reaching not only inside the story, but inside the author and grabbing a vision of what would best represent the story and the author. She carries you through the process with her, allowing you to see how each step unfolds into the creation of something you’ll fall in love with. And normally, if you’ll fall in love with it, a reader (or a million readers–hopefully) will fall in love with it, too. Below are some examples of some of the work she’s done for me and other lucky authors.
This was a facebook or twitter banner. She does extra marketing tidbits for you. A wonderful gal, I tell ya.
This is a cover Winter made for Lilian Oake, one of my favorite authors. I’m currently reading this one. I’d highly recommend it to those who love fantasy. Hooked me from the beginning!
Check out Winter’s website if you’re interested in having the best in the industry working for you. She doesn’t just hand you a cover. She gives a bit of her heart and soul in each of the works.
As Winter comes up with new bits of magic, I’ll be sharing them with you, so stay tuned.
