Graphic Designer- will make a book cover in exchange for a review of my story
Examples of my past query covers:
That sounds like a fair trade. I would be happy to work with you. I have a background in traditional publishing. Much like needing details to make a cover, I would need details of what you are looking for in a review such as:
Line editing - looks for flow, tone and clarity, and will point out problems such as run-on sentences, clichés and pacing.
Copy editing - reviews content for punctuation, grammar, and spelling
Content review - A more author based approach focusing on organic flow of dialogue, character arcs, and conflict resolution.
Let me know if you would like to proceed.
I will gladly read and review your story. To be honest, since the authors you mentioned have ultimately motivated me to start writing myself I was going to do so anyway (especially Rothfuss and Lawrence).
My story isn't published yet, as I have only two finished chapters as of now, but if I can get my hands on a cover similar to the one above I'd be more than happy to write a detailed (or short, if preferred) review for your story.
If you have any specific criteria you want me to review or focus on, just say the word.
My wishes are: A somewhat darker theme, focus on the face of the monster and specifically that it is a monster - more bat-like in appearance than humanoid. I found some decent references by googling 'scary bat mask'. The impression I'm hoping for is 'dangerous' monster without tipping over to horror. Extra nice would be if around the edges/over the edges of the cover is a summoning circle. Not the pentagram one, but a fantasy one with glowing runes and such
The circle in blood red, naturally, it's about a demon (tiny little demon) being summoned to do people's dirty work, like cleaning the flues
I'm going to start reading tomorrow, see you around!
