The Phantom of Forest Lawn

by Robert Brighton

Hi, Robert,
I’m excited to reveal a very different cover that will keep your ongoing body of work exciting and smokin’ hot! You’ll see a different approach than with Butcher. Butcher’s title was an individual so we featured an individual, one beautiful and delicate in contrast to the title. We kept that font period specific but delicate-ish. This cover’s title is big like Forest Lawn and the mysterious Phantom. We don’t know what it is, but want to find out! Please scroll down for more design analysis and full cover images.

Design Analysis

The color scheme is very Civil War-ish once you see it in full below. Again, we have a delicate woman in over her head as the birds and her size in the scene suggests. Missing her jacket makes her more vulnerable. Where is she going? The phantom symbol is a popping swath of greenish-yellow carried to font which balances out all the red and stands in for lack of green in a BW cemetery which suggest time period–makes blue dress pop. I kept overall decor fairly simple like the period but with tiny details. Font is EFCO Songster which we didn’t use for other book but works perfectly here with a secondary font for pop. Author branded font carries forward from Butcher. Please scroll down for full cover view.

Please Note: Any imperfections will be corrected upon design approval. Colors will render according to individual computer monitor settings. Print and digital are two different mediums. Please order a hard copy from the printer to review for color/tone adjustments. For example, gloss covers tend to print darker than matte.

Cover Front/Back

I kept reviews on back so you could see spacing. Also back styling carries author branding forward as historical novel-ish rather than modern unless you’d like to go in another direction. Please take your time reviewing your cover. Enjoy! (Click to enlarge.)

Warm Regards,
