Cover Poll: Fairy Bite

I can’t prelist Fairy Bite until a cover has been decided. Soooooo my fine readerly friends, what say you? (Even after listing a pre-order, I can make some changes to the cover–fonts and placement, etc. However, I’d like to have a cover that is very close to the final for any kind of retailer listing!)

  1. I like both of them but I’m partial to owls and the lady in the second looks a bit ‘off’ so I chose the first.

  2. I like them both, but I’m worried the owls won’t render at all small. These are fairly large samples!

  3. I like the owls, with one caveat. It’s a little dark (in color, not in tone). Is there a way to lighten it up a bit so that the details are more visible? Especially the whatever they ares on the left of the porch. They blend right into the grass background. I don’t care for the gargoyle/girl — or rather, I don’t care for the girl — in choice #2. As April says, she looks “off”, although I suppose being bitten by a Fairy would tend to make one “off”.

  4. No, there is no way to lighten the first one. The details do blend in very well–but it’s not my blending so I cannot undo or change it! The details are even worse when the cover is smaller.

    Thanks for the input!

  5. Oh well. I still like it much better than Choice #2.

  6. The owls because who doesn’t want owls.

  7. The gargoyle is adorable, but the first cover is more cohesive

  8. I like #1 just wonder if the fonts could be a little darker would it be too harsh. Just thinking the title would stand out more. I do like #1 so much more than #2.

  9. I agree with Tibet. The title does need to stand out more. Don’t you have a bit of red in the second one? I think that would work for the first title.

  10. I’m mixed. I think the first goes more with the previous covers. The 2nd cover definitely stands out more. I prefer the first. So that was an owl? Isn’t this a dragon book? Could it be more promi ent? I’m guessing from your earlier responses you can’t edit it. Maybe make title & your name stand out a bit more…

    Comment by Margaret — March 13, 2017 @ 7:01 pm

  11. maybe make the name and title bigger – it seems smaller than the previous 2 book titles… where the title goes across the whole page…

    Comment by Margaret — March 13, 2017 @ 7:11 pm

  12. I’m working on some edits to both the covers. I can bring the owl more upfront. As you can tell from the description, this book has fairies, a gargoyle and a dragon. Among other beasts, including an owl. I’ll put up versions of the “latest” covers for those who want to come back and opine further. It may take me a couple of days to get something finangled.

  13. I love the gargoyle, but the owls are cool too. Hang on to the gargoyle even if you don’t use him here. I’m sure he’ll work his way into a story somewhere.

  14. Definitely number 1!!!! I love that it has so many intriguing things to explore!

  15. Joining to the owl trope πŸ˜‰

    Comment by MarΓ­sa — March 14, 2017 @ 2:41 am

  16. I’d choose the cover that most closely fits the contents. However, the first is more intriguing to me.

    Comment by LeAnn — March 14, 2017 @ 8:52 pm

  17. The fairy house is obviously intriguing to more people than the gargoyle one so to heck with the content of the book! If people like the cover, they’ll buy the book (and it isn’t that the owl cover doesn’t fit the contents. It’s just a different context).

    I fooled with it all day, but I think the final is going to look a lot like the owl one posted in the latest post.

  18. I have a stake in this! My whole house has fairies in every room.
    Houses fairies , cats flowers mushrooms, etc.
    I know what they look like.
