I must admit, the part of the book-publishing process I was most looking forward to, (beside the finished book, of course) was seeing the cover art. Muse It Up Publishing assigned the cover artist, Charlie Volnek, to me and after filling in a form with details about the main character, setting, era and other relevant information, I waited with bated breath.
And I wasn’t disappointed! The only change I requested was that the monk’s habit was changed from the usual brown to grey to reflect the fact that he is known in the book as the ‘Grey Monk’. But other than that, I was thrilled. It really seemed to bring the whole book to life. I particularly liked the way she used a photo of St. Nicholas Church, giving it a hint of realism.
I looked up Charlie’s website and found some other fantastic cover art. Why not check out some of her designs here ?
And she’s an author too! How clever is that!
