Maialen Alonso!

The Cover Designer that gave my first novel “Devils Fall” the perfect cover to depict Lucy being pulled between Heaven and Hell was the amazingly talented cover design from Bilbao, Spain – Maialen Alonso!

She has become both someone I look to as a friend and a creative designer. She creates vivid, eye catching covers while also expressing the authors story by creating covers that well, tell a story.

When I first released “Devils Fall” in November 2016, I had a cheesy cover of blue roses falling, this was meaningful to me to have the blue roses on the cover because of a special part of the book between the demon Asmodeus and Lucy. (If you’ve read “Devils Fall” you know what I’m talking about.) but I knew a cover with only blue roses were not going to catch anyone’s interest because as much as I hate to say it, we judge books by their covers and blue roses just weren’t going to bring readers in.

So, I searched for a cover on http://www.thebookcoverdesigner.com, I would say that I searched through over 2,000 or more covers for 2 months before I finally came upon Maialen’s “Hell Dance” book cover. I found her cover in February and knew I had to have it. I had plans to officially release the paperback of Devils Fall so I knew this cover on a matte finish would be perfect.

There was no other cover that I had found that made me think, “This is Lucy’s story!” but “Hell Dance” was the perfect depiction.

I purchased the cover and shortly after she contacted me to know what changes would need to be made. It was only a few hours later that I was the new owner of the beautiful “Hell Dance” now “Devils Fall” cover!

I have always had a wonderful experience collaborating with Maialen, she listen to what you need and always gets back to you quickly and not to mention – for me – she is on the other side of the world working to get a cover ready!

She has also helped me reformat paperback covers and helped me understand how to create my own paperback covers. I honestly do not think I would understand half as much about paperback covers if I did not know her!

Not only is Maialen Alonso an amazing cover designer, but she is also an author herself with several published novels, both written in Spanish and translated into English. After she finished her studies, she dedicated herself to writing, which is her chosen profession.

As a cover designer and an author this gives her the mindset and aspect of a writer to help ensure that your cover is perfect for YOU and YOUR story.

Kristyn was the designer I chose to design my cover for “DEVILS DREAM” – I had stared at this cover for almost two months, constantly checking back to see that it was still available. I hadn’t planned to have a face on one of my covers but it was undeniable that this cover was going to give my main character, “Lucy Morningstar” a face!

I got ahold of Kristyn and purchased my cover, within 24 hours she had sent me the cover through my email along with over 4 different advertisements for me to use!

This cover at the time only cost me $70 and looks absolutely beautiful on its Matte finished Paperback!  If it wasn’t for Kristyn’s designs, my character would have never been give a face.
