A Cover By Any Other Name
Today is Second Tuesday, a blog hop with a theme. Todays topic: Book Covers. Wow. This is something I have been thinking about a lot. Ever since I decided to take the plunge into indie writing, I seem to be spending more time on these 'wrappings', trying to come up with something to entice the potential reader into picking up my book...figuratively, since I am e-published. Hopefully soon I will be in book form and my readers that prefer that option will have something solid to hold in their hands.
My earlier attempt at creating my own art was less than successful. With Sam, I hit the art application that came with my laptop. I know you all remember this little guy. Honestly, I think he is cute. But as a book cover...maybe for a comic book, but Sam is a horror story with a twist.
Of course I asked your advice, offering up several different versions, making changes and finally settling on the putrid green. Admittedly it was my husbands favorite, so he had a lot of input. And now, once again, I am looking for your help. I am working on a new book cover for The Carnival. I have 3 selections...one of which I really like, but I am flexible. You tell me what you like and what you don't like...tell me what changes you think I need. And together maybe we can come up with something that will jump into your kindle.
Like last time, either leave a comment below or email me your thoughts. Email can go to email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
