Book Cover Art for Zombie Killing Stoners (or any book) is as important as the book content, but harder to complete!
You will all be happy to hear that the book content for Episode 2 is complete. All I have to do is format the html file and upload to KDP.
Oh, and have a cover.
It is harder to settle on a cover than you might imagine. We could always go the canned cover route, and work with something typically Zombie or horror-themed. But that doesn’t really represent the story.
Our first cover sort of gets there. There is a NYC skyline, but it unclear where the people are and what they are doing. They look awfully relaxed for people heading into a Zompoc. The zombie skull isn’t quite zombie enough, and the bong is, well, more of a stylized hookah.
So I went back on Fiverr and picked another graphic artist. We got a canned zombie cover with a pot leaf – still not quite what we want, since our book is so survivor focused.
I finally made the decision to hire someone here in NYC. And actual graphic designer who is also a friend – Liz Torres!
We can’t wait to see what kind of fun ideas she comes up with. And we hope that you will all see her work very, very soon!
