Photo Friday Cover Confusion

The (cover) plot thickens. Last Friday you all overwhelmingly chose cover #1 (Andi at the beach with the purple border).

Well, I found yet another cover that might work, so I really need some more opinions. Do you still like the beach cover best, or does Andi holding the cat in front of a SF cable car appeal to you more?

Sorry to keep asking, but I will have to send my ideas in to my publisher pretty soon and I simply cannot decide. With folks I've emailed, it's pretty much split down the middle--50/50. I had pretty much decided on the beach one until I found the cat pose. Help!

 #2: Beach Cover Flat (cat picture on the back cover)

  1. I showed it to my 10-year-old sis, and she said, "top one. The bottom one's color is too light."

  2. Well, I think I like the top one best. The previous one with that picture looked a little too photoshopped, but I think the cat makes it better. And I like it because it has the other picture on the back. I also like her fancy dress on the cover, because as you said she is with Aunt Rebecca and she makes her wear those things ;)
    But then I like the second one because it looks so much like she's far from home.
    But I say I like the first one better. ;-)

  3. The first one. And I'm sure my lil' sis would say the first as well (she loves cats) but I do like the second one, but the first is my favorite.

    PS the story sounds exciting at least from reading the back cover:)

  4. I'd still say the second. ;) I think the top is just a bit too much color.

  5. I like the second one best. To me the top is too cluttered with the cable car, cable car words, bright dress, and cat.

  6. I had liked the cable car one originally - but with the cat it seems kind of scary to me! Maybe I'm thinking what's she doing with a cat and what if it gets away in the busy street! So I'd have to say now I like the beach one . . . Is there a cat in the book?

    1. Yes, Donna, there is a cat in the book. LOL
      Thanks for chiming in!

  7. Hmm...I like #1 best now! Does it have anything to do with the added cat? Maybe....=^.^=

  8. Nice job creating covers! #2 is my favorite. #1 is cute too, but it is almost distracting with all the different elements in the picture. If the cable car didn't have any writing, the cover might look less busy.

  9. Oh boy, they are both really cool, but I think I like the second one best. The top one seems pretty dark and busy, whereas the second one is lighter. And I like the cat picture on the back of the second one :)

  10. I think I like the second one better, but they're both really neat. :)

  11. This is a tuff one, I guess I like the 1st one better. There both really cute! <3

  12. Is Andi soposed to look like she's scared? Because in the first one she looks kinda scared at least to me...

  13. I really like cover 2, the beach front with the cat picture on the back. :)

  14. Absolutely love #2 best! It's just way more peaceful, and I feel like the colors flow better. Andi's not the type to love busy cities, She fits in better at the beach. Also, looking at the covers, she looks happier in #2!!

  15. I would say #2. Love the purple. :)

  16. I like #1 best and I like how it shows the other cover on the back.

  17. On the second cover, is the back grown on the back of the cover, the same as the one on Smugglers? <3

    ReplyDelete
  18. I personally still love the second cover! The kitty on the other just doesn't totally make sense in the middle of SF, if you know what I mean. :)

  19. I like the red one best. Especially since the beach pic is on the back. And if you are changing the locket thing *wink wink*, I think the first one works. ;)

    1. Yes, I'll eventually change the locket age in Family Secret. *grin*

  20. I'm going to say #1 because it give the "big city" feel to the story and then you have the beach on the back. That's my two cents worth. Take it or leave it. :)

    1. Oh, I'm taking it all right. I'm taking all of you ladies' opinions seriously! :-)

  21. Did they have cake as a print on dresses back then? Just wondering because the one with the cat looks more old fashioned.

    1. Yes, that is my feeling too. If only Andi had a more time-period appropriate dress on for #2, I would have not had so much confusion in deciding myself.
      I don't think they had cupcake print back then. :-)

    2. Thank you! I think I like the first one better.:-)

  22. I love number 2! Number 1 just looks to busy and the cat looks kinda scary.

  23. Well, I guess I'm not gonna be much help, 'cuz I REALLY like the second...but then... that cat is really cute in the first...all in all though, I'd probably still say #2.
    Uh, Mrs. M? How did your thing go...I thought it was on Thursday...just wonderin'!

  24. I like the second one because A) I'm not a huge fan of cats and B) I love pastel color. I also like the cat on the back of the second one.😊

  25. My dad said he liked the second one because the first one looked really photoshopped. (my dad's a computer geek😊)

    1. It's only a concept and not meant to be the cover. My publisher will do it so it looks perfect. It's just the colors and the subject you're supposed to be looking at, not the details. It is not the final cover by any stretch of the imagination!!!! I threw it together quick on purpose. I don't care the covers. Just go with which idea to like better.

  26. If there she had the first picture of here in the second background that would be cool. If not I would have to say #1.

  27. In my mom's words, "The second one—hands down."
