Book Title : Tamuda Rising


Submitted by : Darja Deranged Doctor

Book description : The Tamuda nation gathers and prepares for war. The Takeo Sura, a cabal of disgruntled Dragons, is using deceit, cunning and murder to create chaos before the invading horde reaches the Imperial Fortress. While a desperate group of guardsmen try to hinder the Tamuda’s advance, the Fortress prepares for a siege. The Takeo Sura, however, have other ideas.

Alexander von Ness : Great cover design. Excellent tonality and perfectly balanced design. A dynamic and professionally designed book cover with strong design elements. A very appealing cover. Amazing job!

    Book Title : Whitecaps, Falling Stars, and Lonely Nights

    Submitted by : Julia Collia

    Book description : My poetry book discusses topics that are difficult to get through mentally and emotionally. Most of my inspiration came from late nights by our local river or at our well-known beaches. The moon lit up the scene and the waves brought peace and serenity, similar to how writing made me feel.

    Alexander von Ness : This cover has a lot of potential. I would suggest to emphasize the title and the author name a little bit more. The author name should be shifted down.

    Epic Fantasy cover design by Milo, Deranged Doctor Design.

    Alexander von Ness : Great cover design. Maybe the color of the title and subtitle should be changed to white in order to make the title more contrast and appealing.
