Challenge: Book Cover (Expert Editing)

I originally wanted to do a cheesy romance novel book cover, but then I couldn't get vampire fiction out of my head....so I combined the two! :)

The pose also hid my belly enough, since not many books out there have pregnant ladies on their covers. hahaha! I did toy with the idea of doing a "Home Birth for Dummies" book, but ran out of time to set up, so I went with this idea since my studio lighting was still set up from the Deja Vu challenge. :)

Thanks for all the kind comments!

I am officially not taking on anymore photoshoots for clients until after Carly gets here so I hope to have some extra free time between putting the nursery together and prepping the house for a baby, to participate in some challenges again!

Congrats on the well earned red. (A bit of clairvoyance there?)

God dang you two! Two weeks of you guys crawling all over each other! Get a room! Actually, based on the pregnancy I guess you already did....Anyway, great work! My Samantha T fanclub is alive and well still

You're certainly a delectable pregnant vampire, Samantha. And... you got the perfect ribbon to match your "red" book. Great work.

So impressive, it just looks like the real thing! Everything is great: lighting, colors, pose, processing, fonts. I wouldn't be surprised if you received offers from real writers to use it :)

Well done!

I'd love to see your tummy, though! :D

Fun shoot, love the cover. My only nitpick would be that wouldn't his upper body be back a little more?

You always entertain me with your entries. Congrats!

Congrats! With a title like that you were destined to get the Red Ribbon. Don't think it would have had the same effect if had been "SEEING BLUE"

Worked well as a book cover for me, although not the kind of book or image that I particularly enjoy. But great creativity, and very believable to me.

Not my genre of book at all, but an excellent job with this cover. Top 3.

Lila doesn't like being woken up, and after a 100 year nap, she's especially cranky, as the boys of Alpha Tau are about to find out...

Super creative and technically excellent. Definitely another ribbon for you. Great job!

I am one of your 10s. My only quibble is that I detest random capital letters (mostly the "When" and "Dead"). But the rest is just wicked and superb, as we'd all expect from you.

Good stuff, will do well I think.

Superbly done! Super photography and design skills. I am sure all that hard work will be rewarded with a ribbon. I don't think when the doctor said put your feet up and relax in preparation for your new arrival he meant quite like that:)

Very well done. Definite book cover feel.
