We all know covers are usually the first thing we notice about books which makes a great cover even more important. Darkspell and Lonely Hearts have very different covers that perfectly depict what you'll find waiting inside. Let's take a look at how they were created:


Darkspell's cover was created by the extremely talented Laura J. Miller (aka Author Jaimey Grant) who designs with An Author's Art as well as TreasureLine Publishing. Elizabeth took a photograph of her 11 year old son and made him appear older to fit the 17 year old hero in the book. That was then sent to Laura where she worked on it further and combined it with the orangish smoke/flames and fantastic fonts to create one amazing cover.

The cover for Lonely Hearts actually presented itself to author and designer Linda Boulanger in a dream after Amanda gave her the general idea of the story! The hardest part came with then finding the elements that could be combined to get that dreamed up cover. There are way too many individual pictures used on Lonely Hearts to show them all, however, you may view two of them below.

Linda designs for TreasureLine Publishing as well.

The lavender and journal were both extremely important parts of the Lonely Hearts story.
