Some Cover Fun
At Least Fun For Me…
I love doing covers for the short stories I put in my magazine Smith’s Monthly every month. I always put in four or five original short stories every month. This month there are four original stories, a collection with six stories, and a full novel. A decent issue.
So thought I would share the covers with you. Since I use templates, these four covers took me about 90 minutes to do. (Most time finding the art that fit.) They are all for original short stories.
And also, a side note: Today is the last day of the September Workshop half-price sale. See the last few day’s post for information.
Hey Dean, great covers. Will these stories be in the next Smith’s Monthly? And what is it, issue 65?
Yes those will be in #65. September issue out in a few days.
Those are some really cool covers! I’m curious what templates you use. For my covers, I have my own extensive photography library, and for the past few years, I’ve been trying to up original art game as well.
I just design a cover I like from scratch and then save it as a template in InDesign.
