    Book covers are incredibly important. It’s an author’s foot in the door if it’s done well. I can’t wait to see your final selection. The Claddagh wedding ring is a very nice touch and I think the font you’ve used is perfect.

      Thanks, JP. Like how you describe it as the “author’s foot in the door if it’s done well.” Fingers and toes crossed.

    A big bonjourno from Venice, Diana! I loved reading about your decision-making process for your cover, most particularly how you purchased your ideal photo and had the very talented Ares Jun work with it. As I have had the great privilege of reading your manuscript, I eagerly await the unveiling of your cover for A Cry From the Deep!

      Karen, how lovely to hear from you, all the way from Italy, the setting for your novel. Hope you’re having a grand time walking in the footsteps of your protagonist.

    Both covers are interesting. Both do emote. But I can’t wait to see what you’ve decided upon.

    I had a tough time deciding as I liked both these covers, too. They could work, but I rejected them (for now) . Thanks for your thoughts.

    Of the two you posted here, I would vote for the second. I didn’t see it as evoking a murder or drowning…but a search. I thought it was quite appealing.
    Now I’m very eager to see the one you did choose!

    I agree, Marylin. It’s the one I favoured, but since I had some comments that suggested this one could be misleading, I decided to keep looking for a more fitting cover.

    Diana – Congrats on the final choice for the cover: a truly awesome, eye-catching design! I eagerly await the publication of A Cry from the Deep.
    Your post is timely for me as my new novel, the text anyway, is more or less finished. Now the interesting part – the cover. Control freak or no, I design my own covers and want to get this one right, and agree with JP that covers are incredibly important. I find the cover design part actually more fun than writing a novel (don’t tell anyone :-)), if time-consuming.
