Have you visited the creative threads? Do they still do reads in exchange for covers? I’m going to make my own cover after exams. I’ll have more time then to play with photoshop.


#6817

You mean multi media designs? Some artists still do payment deals for covers. But be sure to look for artists who actually do their original works. @bmecha I know there are a few Wattpaders on here who will ask you to take down their work if they come across it in book covers.

@MakaylaSophia knows a bit more than I do about the legalities of posting covers to Wattpad.


#6818

Do you want it be a standalone?


#6819

For right now, yeah. It’s going to be between 30 and 40 parts I think or maybe even 50. I don’t want to drag it out forever. If I think of a plan for a second series, I might. But Sarah would most likely be between 6 or 7 years olders instead of seventeen like she is in TWR.


#6820

The time skip is going to be obvious in the epilogue.


#6821

Yes I meant multimedia design threads

I’ll use copyright free stock images and try to make it from scratch. If I ever win a contest or something that gives me a nice free cover then I’ll do that.


#6822

That sounds like a good plan. You don’t want to force the story to drag out if it wraps up on its own.


#6823

Just remember, even if it claims to be copyright free, there’s a slight chance the image could have been stolen. Some people on here have found their work on sites like Pixabay without permission.


#6824

Yeah. I feel like a ton of stories on here dragon out the plot to the point where it’s pretty ridiculous. Things will be picking up a bit in the next couple of chapters. :slight_smile:


#6825

Would a reverse image search help? If that’s true then there is no chance for me to make a nice cover unless I took the images myself and I’m not a good photographer lol.


#6826

It would probably be a good thing to do. :slight_smile:


#6827

Well, good luck on finishing your book! Wish I was close to mine, lol :rofl:


#6828

I’ll learn how to do that and then do it. Just to cover myself.


#6829

Thanks! How long is your story going to be?


#6830

Not trying ti discourage you from using online images, but there’s always that concern something could happen if you use random images found online.


#6831

Nah I rather be safe and original as I can. Worst comes to worst I’ll make a minimal one that can’t be accused of anything. And if readers judge by the cover then that’s up to them.


#6832

I’m actually not really sure. I know exactly how it’s going to end, but it just has to get there lol :joy:

In a rough estimate, maybe 20 or thirty more chapters?


#6833

What kind of stories do you write?


#6834

I’m only writing one right now, and it happens to be Fantasy.


#6835

Good choice
