So far, my best selling book online has been the digital version of The Beast of Blackbirch Manor with the cover below.
The publisher changed the cover for the print version of the book.
Why? I don't know. Which cover do you find more attractive? Which one would you buy?
My latest release, The Fiend of White Buck Hall, has the cover you see below.
For some unknown reason, Amazon has not given the digital version of the book a cover. I did tell my publisher, and I did try to upload it myself to no avail. So on Amazon the book cover for digital version of The Fiend of White Buck Hall looks like this:
Despite the lack of a cover, there are readers who have purchased the digital version of that book. :^)
Book covers are an author's first impression for a reader. I have been disappointed in some of the covers I've received and ecstatic with others, but my opinion of the cover does not necessarily correlate with the sales of the books. Sales are influenced by other factors as well. However, a great book cover does help and I truly appreciate the skill of the artists who have worked on the covers for my books.
Look at the three books below. Which one would you choose to read--based on your first impression?
