First off, The Marriage Contract is Book 1 in the Marriage by Fairytale Series. I just started this series, so I don’t know how many people are aware of it yet. 🙂
Second, I did like the original cover I had for The Marriage Contract, so I didn’t replace it because I didn’t like it. I ended up changing it because I have a cover for Book 2, and I decided I wanted the covers in the series to have a similar “look”. I think it makes it esaier for people to lump the books into one series when the covers are similar.
The artist of both covers is Love Books.
Here’s the new cover for The Marriage Contract:
This is the book loosely based off of Beauty and the Beast, and I have added a The Legend of Sleepy Hollow element to it. At the heart of this story, however, is a romance with a happily ever after.
I just uploaded the cover to Smashwords, so it’s not on the other channels yet. I can’t upload it to Amazon yet, but it is available for pre-order on Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iBooks.
Since I mentioned the cover for Book 2, I’ll share it right now.
This one is loosely based off of Cinderella. Until I write it, I don’t know if any other elements will be added to it, but I do love combining different elements to enrich the storyline.
This book is not on pre-order yet.
I like that cover.
Those are beautiful covers! And I love that you’re combining elements to come up with stories that are uniquely yours. 🙂
Thank you! As soon as I saw the cover for Book 2 (which was a pre-made one), I wanted to get a look for the rest of the series that would match it.
I’m excited to put in these different elements into my stories. I love psychological thrillers, so any time I can something with an element of danger, it’s icing on the cake.
Thanks! I’ve been looking to do covers like these for a long time, so I was thrilled to find one that was pre-made. I then asked the cover artist to do the other covers in the series with a similar look.
It’s always good when you can find someone to help you do that.
Here’s the site of pre-made covers I went to. Some of the cover artists over there are really nice. What I love about this site is that they divide up the covers by genre so it’s easier to find something you’re looking for. https://thebookcoverdesigner.com I don’t know if it’ll be any use to you, but just in case, I thought I’d pass it along. Another author passed it along to me last year.
Thanks Ruth. I might use it at some point, believe me. ☺
