How it happened: Book Cover-Frame Me

April 30, 2016


"I want it framed."

You want what? HMM.


Now there are good and bad things about this design. I really do like the frame. I like the simplicity of the thin, ornate flourish. I like the fact that it lays at the edge of your vision, drawing the eye into the center where the information that is actually important resides. 


The bad thing: Most printers including Createspace and Lightning Source require a bleed around the edge and suggest that any design you upload to them gives space for slips in paper. This means that you don't want outlines or edge décor that might be lost in

the case of minor printing errors. In many cases these won't be replaced--extreme cases I've never heard of any printer who didn't replace their mistakes. 


My favorite part of creating this series is keeping the consistency from beginning to end. While the series was pulled before the last cover came to fruition, I still enjoyed the overall outcome. 

Christina has many other novels out.
