I'm working with a designer on a new cover for my Edwardian historical adventure romance. My old cover was not conveying the adventure aspect of my novel. My designer sent this to me today. I think we're definitely heading in the right direction, but I'm not sure we're there yet.
Since you all were so helpful the last time I posted about my cover woes, could you please give me some thoughts/advice on this one? (Old one on the left, new one on the right). Thanks!!
Edited because my picture wasn't showing up. Sorry!
Thanks everyone! My designer (Emma Graves) did a fantastic job. She really worked with me to get a feel for my novel. The new cover definitely says historical adventure...but would readers know that it is a romance? If not, that may be my fault--I was very specific about not wanting a clinch cover. Also, I do agree that the woman and the elephant need to be bigger.
I like the new one much better. It wasn't that the old one was bad, but this new one 'tells' so much more at a glance. You get to know the setting, era, etc and that it's an adventure all without reading a blurb or even the title. As for it not reflecting that this is a romance--the title should tell people that. So I think you've got all the bases covered.
