A few days ago I shared my first attempt at a book cover makeover for my Christian novella, Second Chances. Thanks to everyone who gave their feedback.
What I concluded from this exercise was:
1) The new cover was a hit, but didn’t fully capture what the story is about
2) I should definitely go ahead and change my cover.
So, I’ve been roaming the internet for images and found a picture of Hannah, so she can join Rachel on the front cover of my book. Scroll down to see what I’ve come up with…
Here is the synopsis of my book:
Even as a child, Rachel had her whole life mapped out – study teaching, marry the perfect guy, have some kids and be a stay at home mum. With two different guys after her attention, Rachel must make a choice – will she choose rebellious single dad Nate or sensible youth leader Steven?
Meanwhile, Hannah is on top of the world, engaged to be married to the love of her life, until a chance encounter with someone from her past threatens to take away her happiness. Will her relationship survive when the secret she has been keeping for so many years is uncovered?
As these best friends lean on God and each other through different trials, they both experience God’s forgiveness and his provision of second chances.
Here is the existing cover…
Proposed new cover design #1
And proposed new cover design #2
I may still play around with the placement of the words ‘A Christian Novella’, but otherwise I’m really happy with this. Do you think it works?
