My Book Cover Failures

Wendy May's Book Cover MistakesWell, here's a step away from that to show you my absolute failures. This entry will focus on the various attempts I made for a Paranormal Ghost story I had written. The name has changed from Dark Rider to Dusk to Light. It'll change again one last time when I reveal the final cover design I've made in a later entry.
The Black and White Atrocity
Shirtless and Faceless Hunk
To that end, I had attempted to research the elements of what the other romance erotica books had for their book covers. Shirtless, faceless, male hunk is basically all there is to it. I combined that with a spooky background to convey the supernatural aspects of the story. The font is atrocious though. Fail!
Supernatural Magic Couple of Doom
Supernatural Ghost Glow Couple
I'll post the final ebook cover that is currently on the market. I hope you can learn from my mistakes. There's always room for improvement when learning. Remember, no matter what, don't give up.

Update 1/1/2020: At last the final ebook cover. Urban fantasy features a strong female protagonist amid magical elements in the background. This genre changes but it will always have the main character front and center with either a city, moon, or magic. Last year the trend seemed to be on magical academies but it seems there's a shift toward magical prisons now. I suppose the females grew up, got in trouble, and landed themselves in jail. Ha! Honestly, I haven't read into that niche yet but it's an interesting premise to be sure.
Until next time,
