the deadline to get my NaNoWriMo novel printed (I'm at a proud 219k words - after cutting down from 232k) is the day after tomorrow and besides having to do the page formatting, I also need a cover! This time I want to do it myself.
I'm pretty set on the colour scheme. I've been writing on a dark brown background with a turquoise font and it's just set the mood for the story, so I want it on the cover.
The monster is called (Stolen/Steel/Heart) and, yes, that crazy punctuation is part of it. So far I know the colour scheme, I've got a font that I think I like, (although something more "computerish" might also be fun) and I know that I want a heart on the cover as in, one of those anatomical hearts with tubes and stuff. There's books where stolen hearts are about romance - mine isn't.
I'm not sure about the title placement, though. It's hard to divide it nicely without completely breaking up the punctuation stuff, but spelling it out in one line makes the font quite small. I've tried it on a diagonal, any thoughts?
Also got a heart already and I tried first placing it in the bottom right corner, didn't really work out though. Any better ideas as to where to put it? Is the center okay?
Fire away, any critique is very welcome - I've never really tried graphic design and the sooner I get this thing done, the better
