Claudia Burgoa

Claudia is a Denver-based romance author (and my mother). I’ve had the pleasure over the years to see her brand expand and evolve in a myriad of ways. Additionally, I’ve been an integral (free) part of providing promotional content for her street team and releases. Working within the indie publishing industry has given me invaluable insight into what sells and how to catch anyone’s eye.

Here’s some of my  work for her Facebook groups.

A Knight’s Tale Series

In the earlier stages of her career, Claudia wrote the Knight’s Tale series. It’s currently in the process of being re-vamped. So as a thought experiment for both of us, I took it upon myself to create updated covers for these two book. The original covers emphasized their setting and lead couple. For my revision, I wanted to consider what stood out about their stories. Namely, I picked up on  the theme of self-fulfillment outside of relationships in these books. Accordingly, I paired conventions of romance with something to symbolize where the female protagonists where in their lives.

Sweet & Spicy Reads

A book blog run by Claudia Burgoa and Christine Tovey that reviews and promotes various romance works. I had the opportunity to work on their logo. My concept was to find harmony between the opposing ideas of sweet and spicy. This image’s satin sheet effect was created using Adobe Photoshop. To me, it evokes a sense of intimacy and luxury that is often sought after by readers of the genre.
