Help Chose the Come Home to Me Cover

Come Home to Me Book Cover Choices:  

Sepia or Color

Here are two new covers I created for Peggy L. Henderson's next book, Come Home to Me, which should be released some time in September.  We narrowed down the options to these two choices, but then we couldn't decide on the final cover.  I like one version and Peggy likes the other.  They are both similar, but we each had our own ideas about what the covers conveyed.

Of course, Peggy can chose which ever cover she prefers, but it's wonderful to get input from readers.  So, stop by her Facebook page to vote:

The voting will stay open until the book is released in September.  Come Home to Me is Book 1 of a new series by Peggy titled:  Second Chances Time Travel Romance Series.  You can find teasers each Tuesday on Peggy's blog:

Cover for Yellowstone Awakening

Here is the cover I designed for Yellowstone Awakening by Peggy L. Henderson, Book 3 in the Yellowstone Romance Series.  Of all the covers I designed in the series, this one was the most challenging for us.  Eventually Peggy and I decided to start fresh with new images and within a few minutes this cover emerged.  I love the stunning colors and the softness of the characters, Kyle and Kate.  The photo really depicts the kind of beauty Kyle fights passionately to protect in the book. 

Peggy has a talent for weaving accurate historical tidbits into her writing, which really enhances the stories.  For more information about the Yellowstone Series, check out Peggy's blog. She posts teasers of her upcoming books, interviews with other authors, and interesting historical information.

Cover for Yellowstone Redemption

Here is the cover for Yellowstone Redemption by Peggy L. Henderson.  I spent a ton of time on the first cover and then this one just fell right into place.  This is another great book from Peggy.  I read the entire book in one sitting because I could not put it down. If you haven't read any of Peggy's books yet, get over to Amazon and start with Yellowstone Heart Song.  After you read it you will be hooked.  Her stories have well-developed characters, deep emotions, and intriguing plots.  There is also plenty of romance to keep things interesting.

Designing covers is like putting icing on the cake.  It really enhances the reading experience for me.  How many times have you been reading a paperback book and then stopped to glance at the cover?  Or, if you are reading a book on your e-reader, how many times have you stopped back at Amazon to look at the cover online?  I do it all the time because it helps me relate to the characters and to the story.  Thank goodness making these covers is fun.  I really enjoy being creative and helping authors showcase their best work with a professional cover design.

Cover for Yellowstone Heart Song

Who would have thought that one little email would have such a profound impact on my life?  I love to read (must be the nerdy teacher in me) and earlier this summer I read a book that really resonated with me.  I felt so strongly about the writing and the story that I decided to send a quick email to the author, Peggy Henderson.  It's the first time in my life that I have written an author. Little did I know at the time, it was the start of a great friendship.  I read all of Peggy's books in a matter of days and then starting hounding her to write more.

As we started talking, I told her about my creativity and design work.  I offered to make her a cover for Yellowstone Heart Song and she loved it.  So, I designed covers for the entire Yellowstone Romance Series.  With some encouragement from Peggy, I decided to offer my cover design work to other clients.  OK, enough chit chat from me, here is the book (and eventually the cover) that started Covers by Ramona--Yellowstone Heart Song.  In the next few days Peggy will be uploading her new covers to Amazon and on her blog!
