Blood Summit: the cover. Views sought

I am working with the outstanding designers at Creative Covers on images for my new novel Blood Summit.

They have sent across a few mock-ups.  I’d be interested in feedback.

Contenders are:

Option 1: 

Option 2: 

Option 3: 

Option 4: 

Option 5: 

Which would make you want to buy the book, or find out more?

You can either leave a comment; use the “contact me” panel; or, if you have my e-mail already, write to me direct.  NB bear in mind that the chosen image will appear in tiny postage-stamp size on Amazon, so clarity at that scale is important.

Thanks!

    I think the first one has most impact. I prefer the blood splash to the ooze on other versions, as it has more immediacy. The darker Reichstag image on options 4 and 5 will look indistinct on Amazon, I think. Good luck!

  2. It has to be Option 1.

  3. I hadn’t seen Alison Somerset’s comment when I wrote mine. So that’s two out of two who like Option 1. Yes, I, too, liked the blood splash in the corner. Go for it1

    Bother! I was definitely going for option 2 or 5, i.e. without the blood, until I read those two. I suppose the reversing out of your name in option 1 does make it slightly more legible. However, given your well documented predilection for 007-style poses, is the idea of doing a Bond-effect bullet hole with the OO of Blood too obvious?

    Wenn es bei Amazon nur in Briefmarkengröße erscheint, bin ich für die Version 1, weil es ein sehr naturalistischer Blutfleck ist – die anderen wirken eher aus Plastik – und das darunter liegende Gebäude sieht dadurch noch bedrohter aus.

    Good afternoon. What about just a plain cover, no design, so less busy and just the words in the colour of blood?
