New Book Cover!

I've got a new book cover for THE REMAINS OF THE DEAD. Yes, the skinny chick is dead. It's a good thing. Really.

You see, booksellers thought the old cover skewed young. Take away the girl and add a ghostly handprint and they LOVE it. And I LOVE it. So do you love it? I'll leave the old one up on the right for a few days so you can compare the two.

Those of you who already received bookmarks with my old cover, yes, I'll be doing up new ones. Anyone wanting a bookmark just needs to email me their address through my site by clicking here.

Change. It's a good thing :)

Yes. I do love it. I liked the other one, until I saw the new one. Losing the chick makes it so much more... I don't know... WOW.

Wendy Roberts said...

I agree! It's just so much more ... something special :)

Thanks, Rachel!

It's awesome, Wendy! Absolutely love the ghostly hand! It lends a great deal to the spookiness Sadie has to deal with. ;)

Love it! The title and your name really pop now. :) Yay!

I like them both, Wendy. The one with the skinny chick looks chicklitty. Maybe that's why they wanted it changed? Considering how the CL has shrunk over the past couple of years. The new cover looks like it would appeal to a wider range of readers. But I think they're both great. Wishing you many sales!

Thanks Mary! Good to 'see' you :)

Anissa, at the beginning I was so intrigued by the ghostly hand I didn't even notice they'd moved my name LOL. But, yup, I like it better too ;)

Cindy, you're right, it could've been the chicklit thing.
