More book cover & critiques!

We have a two-fer! I like both these strong covers for the same book. They both adhere to a strong, simple color scheme, iconic imagery, and incorporate the title with the background. For the first cover, it took me a

More book cover critiques!

Today is blue and purple day! Simple, haunting, and asking questions. I don’t think it even needs the ‘A gripping psychological mystery’ at the bottom, because all of that is evident in the single smoking, melting candle and the tag

Lets go dark today! Interesting tagline with ‘James Patterson presents’ – I’m guessing this is one of the writers he has helping him with his own books striking out on their own? Regardless, the addition is gold for marketing. It’s

Today is fire tones day! I’ve seen Lorna Peel’s covers before, and they’re always lovely. This one is full of Regency vibes, with that lovely house. The title font is wonderful – just a bit of scroll, but not so

Today is blue and purple day! This is lovely, full of Young Adult Fantasy feels. The font is fancy but is big enough and high enough contrast not to be lost. I would have liked more contrast in general, but
