I finished the cover for my debut novel!

Posted in My Work with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2012 by tanja1986

Yay, I am very excited, because I finally created a decent and at the same time horrifying looking bookcover for my debut novel “Death lurks everywhere” It still takes a while until I finish my work on the book. First at all, right now I am writing in my native language, which is German. That means:

1. I need not only an editor for the German version.

2. I need a translation for the book, so I can publish it in America too!

But after all, I am very excited when the day comes, where I can focus on these things! 🙂 Right now I am at the beginning of Chapter 16 and the book will have a total amount of 29 Chapters! I already wrote the story points down. Now I only need to fill the book pages with my ideas to complete the story!

Book Cover:

What you can expect from the story:

A genetic experiment produces a fierce monster. The experiment and the monster go completely out of control. The result – a disaster of massive proportions, a danger to the human race. Will the evil forces behind this experiment be discovered and will the monster be stopped, or is everything lost…

New service – I´ll create book covers!

Posted in My Work with tags , , , , , on May 5, 2012 by tanja1986

Since I joined Twitter a few weeks ago, I met many people with the same interest. Many independent Authors are promoting their new books and also make friends with other people, who did the same.

I was concentrating my work on art works, web & graphic design. But now I see a potential source for my work. And I thought, why should I not work on book covers? Since I love art and also write a book myself, I decided to offer a new service! I will create book covers for very reasonable prices.  You can find some reference covers on my website:

Also I want to share my newest creation. This is  a Horror Book Cover I made for Bruce Clothier, the Author of the book “A Darkness Shattered” which you can buy here: Amazon or here: Smashwords
