Back in February, I posted about a local bookstore owner who suggested that my covers might not be doing my books any favors.
After running an Amazon ad for Book One for a couple of months, I’ve decided she’s got a point. While the covers are eye-catching and unique, they don’t say romance. So I decided to have them redone. This week, I received the initial drafts from the designer.
Here’s my original cover for The Demon Always Wins:
And here’s the (first draft of) the new version:
(It’s Thursday afternoon and I had to remove the draft cover because my cover artist fired me. Since the cover is his property, I no longer have the right to display it.
Pretty sure you’ll be hearing more about this on Tuesday…)
I”m planning to make a couple of changes:
- Get rid of the snake completely (sigh)
- Increase the font size for my name by a couple of points so it’s more visible.
What do you think?
