As an indie-author I’m learning about a lot of things, the most recent is marketing and where my book fits in a book store whether it’s a brick and mortar store or an online store.
While doing Bookfunnel promos I realized my covers don’t fit with others in the same genre. As a dark, romantic suspense or suspense thriller romance, they need to look sexy, dark, thrilling, something more…I’m hoping that by changing my covers I’ll attract a wider audience. That’s where you guys come in. I’d love to hear what you think.
What cover gives the reader the best idea of what the story feels like? As the author, sometimes I think I’m too close to the story. I’ve also hesitated to put bare-chested men on the cover. I wanted the books to fit into mainline fiction as well as romance and suspense. There’s nothing wrong with bare-chested men, I kind of like them myself but in trying to discover what fits best for my Leeward Files Series I feel I’m running around in circles. I would love to hear from each of you especially those of you who have read my series.
Here are the matching covers for the rest of the series.
I would appreciate any input. If you like one cover over another but feel it needs something please feel free to make suggestions.
