A novel cover is so important because, despite the saying, we DO judge a book by the cover.
There are so many things to consider: Does it fit the genre, is it an accurate reflection of the story, does it promise the reader the premise, and will it make people at least read the book blurb.
I thought I finally came up with a novel cover I liked, but feedback from a beta readers made me question my choice. The beta reader said they didn’t like photos on the cover… It took away from using your imagination.
Is this true? So many novels have photos now… But so many don’t.
So I played the cover again (which was a lot of fun). Which cover do you prefer? The novel is a light/soft sci-fi (speculative fiction) with a little bit of mystery/romance/action.
Please comment below and let me know your thoughts.
June’s biggest struggle isn’t that she’s a clone. It’s that her father has disappeared and the police aren’t doing enough to help her find him. True, they’re a little occupied with a serial killer who just killed again after two years of silence. Maybe if June would just tell them her dad was involved in illegal human cloning they’d be more interested? But that would only cause trouble for her dad when (or perhaps IF) they found him.
June can’t sit and wait for the police to find her father, so she sets out on her own investigation with the help of Elliot, a man currently AWOL from the military. Can she trust this man with her secret? With each clue they discover, they learn more about the twisted experiments June’s father headed and why she was created. When June and Elliot finally get close to uncovering the truth, they find themselves dodging bullets.
