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.

  1. 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. 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?

  3. Wenn es bei Amazon nur in Briefmarkengr√∂√üe erscheint, bin ich f√ľr die Version 1, weil es ein sehr naturalistischer Blutfleck ist – die anderen wirken eher aus Plastik – und das darunter liegende Geb√§ude sieht dadurch noch bedrohter aus.

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