Welcome to Najla Qamber Designs! Each month, we highlight authors we've enjoyed working with on multiple books and series. With each series, we get the chance to explore different themes and styles that both fit the author's genre while creating something new. This week we're exploring some of our favorite collaborations with romance author, Janet Nissenson. Which of these covers is your favorite? Help us share the cover love by sharing in the comments below!
It's difficult to pick a favorite cover that you've designed, but I always seem to get the most compliments on the Splendor trilogy - Covet, Crave, and Claim - and if I had to pick one of those I would say Covet.
A Word from the Designer
Janet is wonderful! I always love working with her. Love the brainstorming sessions with her. She knows exactly what info I'll need and sends everything I need to get started. She's super easy to work with and everything we've created so far has been so colorful and beautiful. Thank you so much for sticking with me 3 series in, Janet! Can't wait to see what our next collaboration will produce.
A Word from the Author
I found the perfect cover designer in Najla! She just "gets" me, I think, and is able to perfectly convey the ideas I have for covers, teasers, swag, etc. I am probably the least artistic person on the planet, so I am forever grateful that Najla and her team are just the opposite and can create such beautiful images. I get many compliments from readers, bloggers, and other authors on my covers, and I'm so proud to be one of Najla's clients. I always look forward to our next collaboration to see what incredible ideas she will come up with. Selecting her for my cover designer was undoubtedly one of the very best decisions I ever made in my writing career, and I count myself very lucky to be one of her clients.
Branding to Cover
We love designing teasers for covers. Not only are teasers a fun way to offer readers a glimpse into your story, but they are great branding tools for your series. Janet Nissenson always commissions beautiful teasers for us to design. Here are some of our favorites alongside their book covers.
