Do You Get the Concept?

I had an idea for Transformed Into Twins Too that was based on that original Star Trek episode where Captain Kirk is split into two people:  one good and one evil.  So the idea would be there's a science experiment or whatever and this guy is split into two women:  one who's good and sweet and one who's an icy dominatrix.  So I went to Dreamstime (because Adobe took over Fotolia and got rid of ala carte purchases and I don't want to pay $29.99 a month when I need like one or two pictures every few months) and they have the option when you click on a picture to see all the other pictures a model has appeared in on the site.  So I looked up dominatrixes, which is fairly fascinating, and then found one who also had a normal picture.  Then I put both on the cover to represent that there are two people with opposing personalities.

I'm just not sure if it'll be clear that these are two different people and not just the same person in two outfits.  Which technically the latter is true, but it's called Transformed Into TWINS so maybe that will make it clear.  Plus maybe someone will actually read the description on Amazon or the website or whatever--that would be a first.

What do you think?


  1. I think it's a cool twist. With stock art, you're really lucky find something so close to what you want, so that's great. Maybe for your blurb the first line could be in bold and in a larger font. You can do that with author central. Maybe this would help readers know the situation. As for Fotolia, I still see you can buy credits there and I have credits remaining, so not sure what is going on there.

  2. I like it, and also like hearing about your creative process and how you do your covers. This one looks very professional.

  3. I think the contrast could be greater. I like the girl with the whip, but maybe the other girl could look even more virtuous.

  4. The cover is pretty well-done. That's pretty clever to find the same model in different outfits. I do agree with Stephen that if you found a picture of her in glasses it would be more striking.
