High Places by Nina M Osier

Did you design the cover?

Did your publisher design the cover?

Did you get to give any input about the cover design?
Yes; the artist (who was also my editor for this book) asked for my ideas, and she used them to good advantage.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details.
The book is science fiction, and its setting is a mountaintop on an alien world where two ships have crashed many years apart. I asked for a cover that would attract readers who want to read such a story. That's why the mountain and the starship! The green background is from the color of the planet's sky as Humans perceive it from the ground.

Who is the cover artist?
Shelley Rodgerson

Are you happy with the cover?
Yes, very happy.

If not, what would you change and why?
Not a thing. She took my complicated ideas and made them simple and elegant.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.
The two moons in the green sky. Another detail that adds so much to the "otherness" a science fiction cover ought to have.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.
It's typical of the covers provided by my publisher, Write Words. It appears on both editions, eBook (in all the usual digital formats) and trade paperback, and it works equally well in both places. That's not always true of cover art.

Please provide your website link.

What is the link to buy your book? (paperback) and (eBook)
