Book Cover Blues- Part Two

Book Cover Blues- Part Two

I’m still working on the new cover for my next book, Nick of Time. Folks like the new art in both new covers, but I’m still fine tuning the fonts, and I have yet to make a final decision.

The book is about a guy named Nick who, through strange coincidence, finds himself in the right place at the right time to save people’s lives. It happens every day and, while he never hesitates to save a life, it’s wearing him down. He can’t keep a normal job or a steady girlfriend. Nick jokingly calls the phenomenon a curse, but he’s fallen afoul of an old Irish legend.

It’s suspense with a speculative element.

So, what are my worries?


I like the art on this one, but I’m afraid it reads too superhero. While I consider Nick a hero, he has no special powers. He’s just a guy.

I like the art on this one too, and I think the lights give it a speculative touch, but I’m worried it reads too mundane mystery.

I also can’t decide on the fonts for any of them, lol.

If you have a preference, do leave a comment and let me know!

Teatime promo 5

My Kindle Scout campaign for Teatime of the Living Dead is live!

What is it?

Kindle Scout is an awesome program where people nominate books they would like to see published. Nominations won’t guarantee success, the editors have final say in who gets published by Kindle Press and who doesn’t. However, nominations can help get their attention.

What can you do?

Head to my campaign page here, and nominate Teatime of the Living Dead. Make sure you check out the excerpt for a sneak peek of the book! Anyone with an Amazon account can nominate. Each person gets three nominations at a time, but you can only nominate each book once. If you want to help further, share this post to help spread the word!

What’s in it for you?

Anytime you nominate a book on Kindle Scout, and it gets selected for publication, you get a free advance copy of the book. I’ve gotten 19 so far! Because the books are vetted and edited by Kindle Press, you can expect a certain level of quality. All of the books I’ve read so far have been worth reading, and some have been amazingly good.

A little about Teatime:

Andrew Hamilton believes in friendship, good theatre, and that Twizzlers are an underrated member of the candy family. He does not believe in magic. His current play is going great, until the actors playing the zombie horde turn homicidal. Zombie madness spreads through the city and the creepers have one thing in common: they all want to kill Andrew. Magic not only exists, it has rules and deadlines. If he can keep ahead of his stumbling and drooling fan club until teatime, he might survive.
They’re coming for you, Andrew.

  1. Hey, Julianne. I liked your book on Kindle Scout and shared this on Facebook and Twitter. As far as feedback goes, the font is fine except for your tagline. That looks like a straight adobe or Word font, and it doesn’t read professional to me. If you don’t have access to more unique fonts, maybe consider going smaller with all caps, and play around with italics and such. But right now, that part looks homemade to me.

    Hope this helps. 🙂
