The Grim Tidings Podcast: Book Cover Design Panel

Listen to us discuss book cover design by clicking here!

It’s a special panel episode of GTP! Cover art has been a rather hot topic as of late, and we recently had the chance to chat with an author and two top fantasy cover artists to discuss the ins and outs of commissioning a popping book cover! Past guest Peter Fugazzotto recently commissioned Shawn T. King and John Anthony Di Giovanni to compose the cover for his new grimdark fantasy novel THE RISE OF THE FALLEN, and we talked with all three about the collaboration process, how much an author can expect to budget if they want a high quality cover, some tips for eye-catching cover art, and much more! Find Peter online at!
