Hi Everyone. I am pretty much new to this site but I found it useful than I expected.
Like many in this site, I'm writing a fantasy novel and my first volume will be finished soon.
Since I don't have any money (I've just graduated from university), I am trying to make a "not-so-terrible" looking book cover to send it to the publishers along with my manuscript.
I would like to read your opinions about the cover and what it needs to be better.
I know it's such an amateur work, I know it even may look terrible, but that's the point of opening this thread
The cover title is Turkish.
"Tanrıların Sessizliği" means "The Silence of the Gods".
"Darion Elderia" is my protagonist.
There is a gauntlet on the cover, which is important for the story.
I want it to plain and simple but attractive at the same time, the use of gauntlet is important, so with this guide lines, what kind of a cover would you suggest for me to use? What would you do if this was your cover? Make it more colourful or make it a little busier?
Ask any questions you got and they shall be answered
Thanks in advance
Update: Fixed the grammar issue
And yes! Finally I have finished fixing it. Please tell me your opinions about this one, for the first time I think I really like it!
I made an English Book Cover, for you to exemine better, without any foreign language distraction.
What do you say? How is it?
