It's not nearly as easy as I thought.
I've got a lot yet to learn.
But I've also got a book coming out in May, so I need to finalize on a cover. And I want your help.
In order to provide an educated preference, you need to know a bit about the book:
Humorous Late Victorian Mystery Series.
In book one, Xavier Thorn, the renowned sleuth thought to be the inspiration for Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, hires a young man, Victor Hamilton, as his assistant.
Only Vic is actually a young woman of 20. She'd decided at the age of 13 that living life as a man would be far more interesting than being a Victorian woman.
Vic proves to possess extraordinary intuitive skills and excels at getting clients to tell the truth. Still, Xavier is a bit surprised when he realizes he's fallen in love with the fellow. He thought his heart long dead.
Besides sorting out the romantic issues, and there are a great deal of them, they also solve four crimes. In the process ink bottles get thrown, tempers get frayed, secrets get uncovered, and feelings get hurt.
And lots of fun to be had in the process.
I now give you my covers. I've created rough drafts of the first two in the series in 3 different styles. Please vote for your favorite style in the comments and tell me WHY you chose it.
Now if you like more than one, list your two favorite. If you hate them all, could you tell me what's wrong with the the least hated one which might improve it? And if you have suggestions for improving any of these, let me know.
(For those of you who have given suggestions but don't see the changes made, it's because I want to decide on the the ongoing style of books before I invest in further refining of a particular book.) Thanks for helping me.
