Book Cover Ideas

The following images are mock-ups that I did for potential book cover designs. The real cover to be used on the printed book was designed by the Swedish graphic artist Sanna Sporrong. Click here to view a PDF of the final cover design and back cover blurb.

eBook Cover

Digital Book Cover The cover to the left was designed to be used exclusively as a cover for a short promotional eBook to be downloaded for free. The design was kept simple and bold to insure that it would still work as a small image on web sites.

If you are interested in reading this short travel story as an eBook that can be read on eReaders - such as Sony Touch, Nook and Kindle - then you can download this eBook and others for free at Smashword.
