Topic: Redoing Book2 cover

Goal is to emulate the style of the books that sandwich it.

(A) Conveys sense of drowning (this was the goal. She's drowning in the rules society expects of her)
Not fond of the backwards lettering. Would probably un-mirror it

(B) Lighter look
Lettering a bit difficult to read

(C) Some random idea I had 20 minutes ago

Re: Redoing Book2 cover

At this time, I'm leaning towards (B). Anyone have a leaning?

Re: Redoing Book2 cover

I vote for No. 2 as well. You need to have the title clear. And it shows more of the dilemma that No. 3.

Is she the same model on your Kwan book?

Same model, same character wink

Re: Redoing Book2 cover

I like the random "C". She doesn't look like she is drowning to me in the first two. They look more like romance novel covers. But the intensity of her eyes in  the third, the black and white starkness, and the cloth over her mouth like it's silencing her, are powerful images in my opinion. And, it will show on a tiny postage stamp image which is good for Amazon and iBooks.

Re: Redoing Book2 cover

CJ makes good points as usual. Luckily, I can have my cake and eat it too. I'll use (2) as the main image on Amazon and (3) as an alternate cover for kobo

Re: Redoing Book2 cover

I am also voting for No. 2. I sense a consensus brewing.
