People always say “don’t judge a book by its cover,” and yet that exact thing happens probably billions of times each day. Whether it’s people inappropriately judging each other by appearances, or simply picking this or that novel based on how the cover looks. And, although there could be countless other issues, I feel this has happened with my new novel, too. So I’ve decided to change things.
I spoke to other authors doing well in the superhero category (thanks, Logan Rutherford!) and read T. Ellery Hodges interesting article about letting a pro handle your cover, and so I have gone and done it.
Here are the old and new covers, side by side. I think you’ll agree that the new cover gets across the superhero concept MUCH better than the old one.
And, perhaps the best news of all… For I Could Lift My Finger and Black Out the Sun will be priced at just 99c for the complete novel as I begin to run relaunch promotions around it.
