I just did a new cover for my novel, Nothing Serious, so that's quite exciting.
The book was originally, and rightfully so, titled Disconnected. I think it should still be called Disconnected but that word is too long for me to design onto a space 1000 x 1500 pixels and be understood in thumbnail size. That's the issue. There's lots of creative things you *can* do but whether they work in a bookstore or on the net are two very different things.
I did what I could. It was cute. It didn't sell. I did a new cover with a vintage postcard. The sales picked up but I still think it's laboring under that "dated" perception.
So here's the new cover. I would have liked the hat to be purple but after getting halfway there I decided I'd had enough for one afternoon and packed it in. It's something for the future.
