I know, I know, I know. It is nowhere near the holidays right now, so why am I even bothering with free promotions concerning stories with holiday themes? A couple of reasons. First, The Walking Dead is on tonight and it is a super hot show right now. Trying to ride that wave until it fizzles out. Second, I have some new covers to reveal for two of the free stories listed in the title. Let’s get into them now, okay?
A Zombie Thanksgiving
I honestly was never a huge fan of this cover, but it didn’t look too bad so I left it alone. I figured it was good enough for free, which right now given my current budget is good enough for me. It didn’t help me much over the holidays last year so I thought I might try to make it sing and dance the way I want it to (or as best I can on a free budget). If I had the money I would love to have someone design a picture of a zombie eating a rotten maggot filled turkey leg with the maggots squirming and falling away from the leg, crawling over its mouth, and into it. I honestly think that would represent this story the best. Anyway, I am hoping this new cover will stand out better than the last one.
A Zombie New Year’s Eve
This is another one I have had a lot of trouble getting right. It is hard to make a cover pop and represent this story all at the same time. On the one hand, there are zombies, lots and lots of zombies, on the other, it is a straight up romance story with two doomed lovers trying to reunite for their New Year’s Eve kiss. How do you really make a cover that represents that? The one I would love to do for this one is a champagne bottle exploding like a cork is coming out of it, but instead of a cork it is a bullet. I have tried to create that myself, but it is hard to do on my budget. With that said, here is the old and new cover. Not too much changed with this one.
A Zombie Christmas
Nothing new on this one. It was bought and paid for sometime back, so I am very happy with it.
What are your thoughts? I would love to hear what you think about any of these covers.
