Hello and Welcome to my Blog

Hello and welcome to my attempt at blogging. My name is Lyn and my life has taken a new turn in this past year. I have been extremely lucky to have landed myself a role as a Book Cover Artist over at Total-E-Bound. TEB is an erotic romance e-publisher based in the UK with a very impressive list of incredible Authors and some very hot, hot reads.

Being a Cover Artist is one of those jobs that I’ve always wondered about and wished that perhaps one day I’d achieve. Even as a kid I would wish I could paint/draw as well as the artists on the covers of my favourite books. Usually it was horses, like most young girls 😉 . Still it seems to have been one of those jobs that I’ve always coveted, yet could find so little information about.

So I’ve decided to use this blog as a way to promote my own covers, as well as discuss what’s involved in creating them. It’s a bit of a ‘Bridesmaid’ role, considering that it is what’s between the covers that people are after. However, I like to remind myself that mostly it is the cover that draws the reader’s attention in the first place. So instead of being a ‘Bridesmaid’ perhaps we should consider ourselves more like ‘Match Makers’ 😉

All the posts you see below are what I have transferred over from Blogger.



New Header and Cover Breakdown

So, I’ve given myself a bit of a face lift. Thought it was time that I started to put a more professional persona out there 😉 So in this little lapse between covers, I’ve been busy creating banners and avatars.

I’ve also been trying to create a CSS Journal for my DeviantArt page but have given up in disgust. I have a feeling that no matter how hard I try, I’m never going to understand the codes. I might yet have to palm it off to someone who knows a bit more about it. And here I was considering creating my own web page. Yeah. Right!

Here’s a little something that might be of interest. It’s a breakdown of one of Lust In Time. If it’s a bit hard to read, it can be seen here. Just click on it to enlarge.


Breaking the Rules

Breaking the Rules is Summer Jordan’s next release in her Wives-R-Us series.

The concept for the cover was pretty straight forward. The character has dark curly hair and blue eyes so all I had to do here was change her eye colour. The houses were a good find and seemed to fit the storyline well. The card is a carry-on from the previous cover and ties the series together. So there it is – a pretty simple, yet effective cover 😀

Got a few minutes spare? Go check out Dionne Galace’s recent interview with incredibly talented Cover Artists – April Martinez, Anne Cain, Frauke of Croco Designs & Christine Griffin.

Dionne also asked other cover artists to send in a sample of their work which I did. I got a great & might I add VERY quick response. So it seems that I may just be part of Bam’s Friday Showcase! I was asked for a quick rundown on the cover that I sent over. I’m ot very good at that sort of thing, BUT I sent off a little blurb so we’ll see whether I look like a right git once it hit’s the ether LOL.

Got some more covers coming so better get back to them.
