Cover Design Video

Good morning, dear Reader! I hope you’re enjoying launch week as much as I am!

I have a super special treat for you, today, and I am so excited that I have the great privilege of sharing this short video with you all. As I am certain you are aware, a lot of work goes on “behind the scenes” when getting a book ready for publication, and not all of that work is done by the author. Here in the Stormcave, we’ve prepared a small “back-page pass” for you into one of the crucial steps in creating a beautiful finished product.

To answer the question I’ve been asked several times now, yes, that beautiful music in the background of the video (used by permission, of course) is that of Brittany Jean, and is a sneak preview of a song that will be on her soon-to-be-released Album #2.

That is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. Wow. Gives me a whole new appreciation for what goes into your covers. And the music from Brittany Jean! I love seeing the various art forms, painting, writing, and music all coming together. You should do more behind the scenes videos like this!

Yes, the video and the cover really turned out super nice, and I love this presentation and getting to see a bit of what goes into the cover art! It’s also stunning to know that this is just the final step, really. There were lots of previous attempts and before that there were sketches and color-studies and concept art…. it’s amazing how much work goes in. The video is amazing, but it also makes it look so easy…. which it surely is not! :)

Thank you! We are hoping to do many more things like this in the future. But just as the covers take a lot of time, care, and effort… so do these videos!

Thank you! I love everything about this video so much! My favorite thing is how it is just such a fun blend of everything we love here in the Stormcave: Angelina’s artwork, Brittany’s music, my stories, and Grant’s video-skills! :)
