Hi C.C.,

I think the graphics are awesome!!! The only issue for me is there seems to be something missing from the text. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it seems maybe that the wording is kind of flat in appearance and not full. I don't really know how to describe it. Maybe a little texture in that area?? Just my opinion, but the covers are great.

I thought about this, you don't think it makes them too "matchy matchy" ?
You're already doing different fonts. Different coloration. Clearly different art and even styles of art.

I think you'd be fine. It just adds an extra little tie-in IMO.

Great looking covers, I think they're really nice and I wouldn't say anything if you weren't asking. Monster and Gama have great covers, but the graphics on the other two are a little confusing.

There's one little problem. The titles are not really visible in thumbnail, while your name remains huge, legible, and consistently placed. You need to make the titles front and center until your name is important enough to sell books on its own.

I don't think that's actually a requirement.

They've never read your book, therefore they have no clue if they want to, whether they can read the title or not. But they MAY have seen your name or your brand.

Titles are lovely, but they mean less than people think.

Looks like you're in the home stretch.

"Twisted Tales" should be in the sans-serif font used elsewhere, but stretch the kerning out like you have on "Gama" vs "Suicide". Like noted above, moving the joystick in "Gama" up and putting the title at the bottom would fit with the others. For some reason the "30" title, while in the same font as "Monsters", looks too much like comic sans. On "Monsters" it looks appropriately creepy/bloody/drippy. "30" title could match "Gama" and look better (plus the vertical push up to match image contour as noted). But these are all itty-bitty modifications.
