#HomeTheNovel Cover Change

| 1 Comment
As you'll remember from other posts, this is what I had decided on for the cover. After some thought about the cover. I've decided to give something else a try.
I've looked at covers from posts from Tribemates on Triberr, and while they are erotica books, I wonder, does it matter? I scoured Shutterstock for the perfect picture that conveys the lead character in Home, Cody.

Cody is tall, well-built with dark hair. Working as a Marketing Executive was something he decided to do when he was in college; he isn't 100% happy with the choice, but it affords him the luxuries of life. When he speaks to his brother, Tyler (who is already Home), he agrees to meet him there to see what the plans are to rebuild the town where they grew up. If you know about Wyoming, you know that it mostly dry plains.

It's interesting how both work for Home, and how both are completely different in concept. The original cover speak to the dark and strange side of the story, while the new cover speaks to the erotic side of it.

What do you think? Should I stick with the original or go with the new concept?

More about Home: A small Wyoming town is shrinking and dying away. Some people don't care what happens to this small town, but one person does and he wants it restored. He is no ordinary man, he's seen the town rise and fall since its beginning. But he can't do it alone, he needs the help of the boy who knew him without ever meeting him; the one who would rebuild the town for him and restore his ties to Heaven.

  1. I think covers with models do better than covers with just text, IMO. Just... a guess, but my feeling is that readers are drawn to people. Personally, I like the stark bleakness of the sepia text cover, but I know all the people I trust in cover design would say to go with the cover with the person - which is also a beautiful cover, by the way - nice work!
