Before anyone gets too excited I am not about to reveal my book cover for my YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy but I wish I could, I will talk more about that in later posts.
No, what I want to blog about today is… Have you ever found the perfect picture or portfolio of pictures only to find out that you can’t use them? Well, this happened to me around one hour ago and I saw a couple of pictures that would be ideal for future book covers. They were so beautiful and I checked out the price to get just to see much it would cost and I nearly died. The price for the license to use the photograph just for paperback alone was around £1208 ($1994) and that is just for one year.
The price is astounding to me and I can’t be the only one out there that feels this way or maybe I am. But I take away two things from this..
1) I have actually now seen a photograph of how I pictured one of my book covers to be, so hopefully I will one day find another.
2) God Bless, royalty free stock photography sites. 🙂
Also, because it is Easter and I love book covers, bunnies, awesome stuff. I give you the best book cover… EVER!
