RE: Book Cover Seekers' Wishlist
I'm not sure if I can express what sort of pre-made cover might suit me - I haven't seriously looked for one but I sometimes think it would be nice not to have the effort of making my own cover, so I've browsed through some of the sites and I think I can safely say I haven't seen anything that I felt would be suitable. Not that my existing covers are perfect either by any means! It's just that many of the covers I've seen have obviously been meant for fantasy / medieval novels with lots of swirling mist and long flowing dresses etc. This might work if I actually ever realise my ambition to write a steampunk novel but don't hold your breath!
I can't imagine what sort of pre-made cover would be available that would fit my original mystery series, but I might be open to something for my 1950s ones as I've had trouble thinking of something for them. I would like something a bit old-fashioned but not too specific, and it might have a couple on the cover but not in a clinch or anything - but with some indication it was a mystery and not chick-lit.
Sorry - this may not be very helpful.
