Designing Covers

When I was young I studied and drew horses whenever I thought I was ‘bored’.  Then for years I was too busy raising children and working.  I should have learned my lessons when I was young – figure out what you enjoy and when you are stressed, do something you enjoy.

Now, I have now designed new front and back covers for two of my four romance novels.  I can relax and relieve stress from writer’s block or frustration and every day problems by working with Adobe Photoshop. After taking courses through the University of Washington I am learning very much on this fascinating program.

In Hawk’s Gift -there is a true legend of ‘Prairie du Chevel Blanc,’ (White horse of the prairies  –  A phantom white horse that has never been caught.


In Alberta Wild Rose the legendary Lost Lemon Mine is supposed to be in the rugged mountain area of Crowsnest Pass.  Again, it’s never been found but actual people, including Jack Lemon, have died or suffered dire consequences – those that claim to have touched the cursed gold.

  1. Great covers. I need to learn more about photoshop, too. It’s great that you can do something that you love to relieve your stress, and it only adds to the benefits that your books benefit from it too.

    • Thanks. There is personal satisfaction in doing this as well as relieving stress. I was getting confused with all the different options – I like designing/drawing and thought I would learn it myself. Adobe Photoshop is a great program to learn how to do this.
