I once read Matthew Reilly say that “anyone that has said you don’t judge a book it’s front cover has never tried to sell one!”. I think there is merit in that.
After a rather frustrating few nights trying to come to grips with Photoshop, I’ve decided to get some help from the experts. CrowdSpring are a web service that allow authors to post their projects online, and creative types from around the world submit their designs.
In the next 14 days, I hope to be receiving dozens (potentially hundreds) of proposals for the cover design. I realised that people haven’t read the novel yet, but I’m keen to make this as interactive as possible, and would welcome people’s comments / feedbacks on which cover catches their eye the most. You can check out the proposals here.
Thanks for your help!
