Children of a New Earth, cover reveal

My next release is Children of a New Earth. It’s set in a post apocalyptic America and tells the story of a young woman from a survivalist enclave deep in the Rocky Mountains. I posted the blurb just a few days ago.

Here is the cover art I’ve been working on:

And the full cover for the print:

I run about fifty fifty on the decision to buy a professional cover versus making my own. There are many factors to consider when deciding to do a cover on your own, such as do you have the skill set or aesthetic vision. Genre is also an important factor. My last release was epic fantasy and I wanted an illustration rather than a photo. I simply don’t have the skill set or artistic ability to do that on my own.

While working on this cover, I found that I really missed doing them. I enjoy working with graphics programs. I am slowly developing better graphic skills and I will probably continue to do my own covers at least some of the time.

I have to give a huge shout out to Cheryl Corbin of the Saturday Writers group for assistance and advice on this project.

What do you think? Do you like these covers?
