Some Indie and Small Press Cover Love

I keep running into more and more great indie covers and small press covers. I thought I'd share some with everyone here. All links go to Amazon unless I mention otherwise.


Why do I love it?
I love the contrast of the two different faces. 
And yet despite the contrast, it feels like these characters might share something very important with one another. This makes me really want to find out more about the story.

Why do I love it?
Because the tattooed arms and hands remind me of henna and I love the intricacies of the design.

Why do I love it?
For various reasons:
i) That vine thing on the left is really neat.
ii) I love the mask on the girl in the background.
iii) The softness of everything is really beautiful.

Why do I love it? 
There's some something really interesting about how this woman is made from water. It pulls me in and makes me want to know more about the story.

Why do I love it?
Because that girl is seriously creepy looking. 
I also think it takes a lot of talent to make something really creepy without adding a lot disgusting things like blood or guts and the like.

Why do I love it?
Because the colours are gorgeous.
It's really as simple as that.


  1. LOVE all the covers!. Keep them coming!

  2. The cover for Ember is simply fantastic. I really like the cover design for "She Smells the Dead," too. But I think that the red cover font gets lost in the background. It needs a drop-shadow or something to make it more readable.

  3. @E Kelly - Thanks! If I see anymore that I love I'll have to remember to share.
    @Christy - I agree. I can barely see the book title for She Smells the Dead. But I do love everything else about it. A drop shadow like you suggested would have been nice.

  4. Inevitable, Watched, and Goblin Market look really good. I want to add those to my list!

    A thought... Could Goblin Market be referencing Rosetti's poem? I'm so curious now.
