Aztec Midnight is an action/adventure novella, by author M.C. Tuggle. In the story, the knife is a main character in itself, so depicting it on the cover seemed like the right subject choice. The blood is a slight foreshadowing to the mystery around the knife and a way to set the atmosphere for the reader as theyset forth on a thrilling journey. We referenced actual Aztec artifacts for the knife’s design and carvings and dulled all the colors to suggest an old world element.

The book cover design was packaged with promotional graphics. These were meant to further the storyline and compliment the cover.
