Warlock Cover Part 2

So, I really liked all the comments about the Warlock cover and thought I’d start a new post to button down what I should change because I want to incorporate some areas of the new cover and some areas of the old one.

So, if you can please tell me the following, I’d appreciate it.

Here are the two images again:

Version A:


Version B:





















Which do you prefer between version A (old) and version B (new):

The title font / color / background of title text (aka the black background vs. the grainy background)

The title itself—should it be the book’s name or my name?

The background color—pink vs. purple

Should the moon be white or pink

The treatment of the text on the bottom—which text treatment do you prefer?

Thank you for helping me with it. I think I’m almost there but I just haven’t quite nailed it.

  1. I like version A. It seems to have more detail because the colors are crisp. But I like the title better in version B. So I might mix it up a little more.

  4. I agree with Danielle. I like version A better, but like the title better in version B.

  5. Hi Lauralynn, thanks for the comment. When you say the title, do you mean the font and the fact that it's white? You still like it on the black background though, right?

  6. I like the first version better but incorporate some details from the second cover. Make the pink moon white and use the font style of the version 2 but still keep the position on version 1.

    Was that confusing???

  7. Hi Greyz,
    Thanks for the comment. You mean use the font from version 2 (white and shape of font) but keep it in the same position as 1? Do you think the top are should be my name or the book title?

  9. I would use the darker purple background from cover one with a white moon and the fonts from the second cover

  10. Thank you all so much. Looks like I need to keep it purple! And you all seem to like the white moon with the fonts and titles of the second one. Well, now I know what my weekend will entail! LOL

  11. Version B
    I like the title at the top.
    White moon is better than pink.
    If you put A or B full screen, cover the screen with a cloth, turn off the lights, then "unveil" each one in turn.
    I think you`ll see how version B is much more striking & attracts the eye.

  14. I like version 1 coloring, but I think it is better to have the title of the series versus Urban Fantasy novel, especially when it is more paranormal romance/ urban fantasy.
