A Gallery of Angel Leya’s Book Cover Designs
Books have always been a love of mine, but so has art.
Thankfully, even the written word needs visual representation from time to time.
Book cover designs are the perfect meld of story and imagery, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with a couple of authors in creating their book covers, as well as creating my own.
I’ll try to keep this page up to date with all the latest covers as the books become available.
If you’re interested in having me design covers for you, feel free to reach out via the contact page.
You really should read this short story by Sandy Stuckless if you get a chance. When I read it, I just had to make a cover for him. It was featured in the 10MinuteNovelists newsletter, and later was picked up by the Toronto Prose Mill.
I love designing covers for Laine. She has a great sense of style and her books cover a variety of topics and genres. Plus, she’s great to work with. Check out some of these titles:
These are Laine’s novels. I love how the covers reflect the gritty nature of her stories.
During the 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, a judge said this about the cover of Reparation: “Reparation presents with a dark, dramatic photo cover art design. I get the tone of the book from the very first glance.”
The Wisdom books are full of meaningful life lessons, all based around a theme. Each book features beautiful pictures and original sayings about some of your favorite subjects.
Like the Wisdom series, the Zen series features beautiful pictures and original sayings about some of your favorite subjects.
The Beautiful Book series is one of my favorites. I just love these beautiful covers and colors. The interiors are black and white for a more economic price, but the font choices and borders means they’re no less beautiful.
The Travel Photo Art series are a collection of photos gathered on Laine’s many journeys, paired with thoughtful titles. Some of the collections were large enough to warrant two books, in which I split photos (which I used whole for the accompanying journal) to create the two covers. (It’s worthwhile to note that some of the photos are not in order as book 1 on the left and book 2 on the right, because I wanted the first book in the series to have the more stunning photo.)
This series includes: Bikes of Berlin, Panoramas of Portugal, Ruins of Rome II, Ruins of Rome I, Ruins of Rome Journal, Ancients of Assisi II, Ancients of Assisi I, Necropolises of New Orleans I, Necropolises of New Orleans II, and Necropolises of New Orleans Journal.
And Laine does all sorts of books, reaching into her vast experience with things such as the publishing industry and her extensive travels in Australia.
During the 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, a judge said this about the cover of Woman Alone: “I liked the choice of font for the book cover’s title and chapter headings. The cover, with its lone figure standing in a remote copper-colored landscape, invites the prospective buyer to pick up the book.” The judge gave the cover a rating of 5 out of 5.
G.B. Brulte is another prolific writer. His novels focus on sweet romance filled with poetry and music, and a bit of science.
Novels by G.B. Brulte: Love Isn’t Rocket Science, Who has a Death Ray!?!!, Me, Elvis, and the Alligator Gar, The Fading Princess, Amphibian Dream, Pandora in a Box, Beyond Magic, She Fell From Heaven, Ghostnip, and Manifesting for Destiny.
Angela Page has two books here, one a heartfelt and humorous romance, and the other an anecdotal story about an older woman suddenly thrust back onto the dating scene, as well as a guidebook for anyone in a similar boat.
Comedian Erica Manfred has created a collection of humorous essays based around her experience of growing old and moving to Florida. It’s titled: I’m Old So Why Aren’t I Wise?
