Here is the book cover for Book One in my new, revamped Enchanted Circus series, RING RIDER. Look for it to be released early in 2016, followed closely by the next two books in the series.
I designed the cover using shots from a photo shoot I set up. The striped big top background is from a painting I made, copied multiple times, and then I constructed a paper circus tent from the copies for my previous book trailer. The image is from a screen grab. Recycling, yay! In the covers for this series, I also used a couple public domain images from The Graphics Fairy. If you are a creative type, you need to know about this site.
The models are the talented young actors Helen Grace Lahey and Cooper Miller. They perfectly embody Evanja Leane and Walter Winstanley. Make up by Isabella Parkinson-Morgan.
Big thanks to all who took part in the shoot and offered feedback on the book cover process!
Below is the full cover for the print version of the book. The theme of the shadow projected against the inside of the tent continues throughout all five covers.
