This project was a book cover for Mary A. Felkins devotional "What the Morning Brings". Scroll to see the process of this design!


Initial Design


For an initial design of a book cover, we send multiple options with many styles for an author to see based off the initial conversation about their book. In this case, Mary wanted to use a sunset photo her daughter took for the cover. We explored different ways to use the photos while still maintaining a quality look.

She chose her favorite and we began making options based off our conversation.

Design Updates


Another Round of Revisions


Through phone calls and text, we discussed all of Mary's concerns and vision for her story and landed on these revisions for her cover.

This process of images is a combination of versions created through almost 5 different sessions of revisions to make sure Mary got exactly what she was envisioning for her cover.

Final Book Cover


Check out the Author


Mary A. Felkins is an inspirational romance author, administrator for Seriously Write writer's blog, and contributor to an on-line Bible study magazine. In 2015, she was awarded a bronze medal winner for her scene submission to My Book Therapy's Frazier contest. Call to Love is her debut, inspirational romance novel.

Raised in Houston, Texas (and forever a Lone Star girl), Mary and her husband Bruce moved to the foothills of North Carolina in 1997. They are blessed to parent four young adult children. She can be lured from her writer's cave if presented with a large, unopened bag of Peanut M&Ms or to watch an episode of Fixer Upper. A surprise appearance by her teen idol, Donny Osmond, would also do the trick, although she'd likely pass out.
If, upon introduction, she likes your first or last name, expect to see it show up in one of her novels.
