In a recent post, I shared my observations and research concerning book covers. The feedback I got was all over the map. Some look for unusual covers without the hot guy/girl on the cover. Some identify their genre by that hot guy/girl cover type.
Originally, it was my idea/decision to go with the flowers for the book covers. I wanted something that was original and would stand out from the crowd. And Jason did a gorgeous set of covers for me. I’m so reluctant to let them go.
However, eventually I realized that the only way to tell for sure if it’s the cover that is making the difference is to change up the Svatura covers and see what happens. Like I said… it breaks my heart to let go of the beautiful ones Jason created. And, if I don’t see any real impact from this move, I’ll be even more sad. But, business hat on, it seems worth a try.
I’m in the process of creating the new book covers now. I know which I’m going with, but thought I’d share the 3 different design versions I came up with initially. I was going to do all three themes for all 4 books. But I fell in love with one of the designs, so didn’t end up doing that.
Going for a dreamy, romantic feel with this option. Using the same image to wrap around to the back side of the print version of the cover.
I like #2 best of these but really like the original covers.
