All that done, once I toss my baby manuscripts into the laps of publishers, they gather together their team of graphic artists and construct their own cover. Sometimes I like what they come up with, sometimes not. At least they're kind enough to let me contribute a few ideas, which I appreciate.
Would you like to see my very basic handiwork? Why, I thought you'd never ask! Below are the three covers I've tossed together for, respectively, Hunted, Hunted Past, and Hunted Dreams. Caveat: Up until Hunted Dreams, I used or bought the royalty free art; however, I can't claim that the images on the cover of HD are mine.
