That means it's time to freak out about the cover some more!
So I spent like 20 hours working on a painting for the cover several weeks ago. I have become increasingly less happy with it. I tweaked a few things about it that particularly bothered me, and I'm okay with it now. But I'm not sure it's the best possible choice.
I fiddled with some alternates a couple of weeks ago, and while my quick Twitter poll favored one of them, I kind of hated it. I decided to do some more variants on the same general theme. I actually did five total, but I'm only showing the one I like best here. And a poll, of course. Because poll.
The lettering is a placeholder, so don't worry about that part. alinsa will be doing the actual text layout. I just threw some words on so it would look cover-ish.
Which of these would you be more likely to click on?
If I use the pose from the silhouette, should I leave it as stylized silhouettes, or paint it in the style of the busts?
Leave it stylized
Am I over-thinking this?
Oh heavens yes
Please stop screwing around with covers and write the next book
