We all know people judge books by their covers, no matter how many times we use that expression not to do that to people, we still do it to books. 🙂 My boyfriend and I did a photo shoot to try out different poses and weapons for what would work for an urban fantasy heroine on a book cover. I still have to do more detailed research into covers and formatting, but there’s usually a heroine with some sort of weapon and some magical item or magic going on in the background.
Here are my favorites (all unedited). Vote for your favorite, tell me if there’s something that’d make one look better to you, or what elements seem more inline with the urban fantasy genre than others.
(We are looking for ones in general for many different stories and books, so one might be more suited to a particular story than others, but general feedback on what looks urban fantasy-like even if it wouldn’t necessarily go with a particular story would be good 🙂
