I like the third one. Of the three, that is the one I would grab off the shelf just because. Good luck!

Paily said...

I would go with C. A is super cute, but that look has become kind of common, thus making it blend in. The socks in C intrigue me, thus making me want to pick it up.

First impressions:

1) The girl in the illustration looks hyper-happy. Annoyingly so. I would avoid that cover if I saw it on a shelf.

2) There's a sophistication to this one that catches my curiousity. I would assume the protagonist is in her 20's or maybe even 30's.

3) I like this one best (I want those socks!) but it has a very teenaged feel to it. I would expect the protagonist to be in her late teens.

So...do NOT like the first. Like the second. Love the third. But the age of your main character would be the deciding factor for me.

I like C.

Sarah M Eden said...

Definitely #3!

The first is by far the lowest on my list. I probably *wouldn't* pick up a book with that cover. #2 is an improvement, but #3 is the best of the lot.

Maggie said...

I like C best, BUT I wouldn't pick it because it seems like 90 percent of new covers right now are of people's feet and it's getting SO OVERDONE!

Go with B. Love that one.

NIKOL said...

Clearly, the choice is C. But B would be acceptable. ABSOLUTELY AVOID CHOICE A. They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I would avoid a book with that picture on the front. Seriously.

I like the third one the best.

Sariah S. Wilson said...

Depends on what kind of book it is. If it's a fluffy chick lit romance, then the first. Out of those three covers, A is the one I'd pick up first (and would expect it to be a fluffy, chick lit romance). I don't like C at all, and while I do like B and it would probably catch my eye, it doesn't really tell me what the story's about.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

LOVE the third one! :D It's eye catching and definitely makes me want to read it. :)

Becca said...

Okay, we voted. For 2. I think the 3rd is too "teen-y" and I'm guessing from the subtitle that she's not a teen.

But, may I say? Covenant design team rules.

My 10-y-o liked #1 best, for what it's worth. (Which may mean it's perfect for pre-teen readers of girlie books.)

Traci Hunter Abramson said...

C was my favorite, B was my second choice and A didn't grab me at all. Good luck! And yes, Covenant's design team ROCKS!

Heather said...

Of the 3, definitely the third. However, it does look a little YAish.

Susan said...

I love, love, love C! It feels like your girl and your story isn't fluffy so it definitely doesn't deserve A. B is ok but doesn't tell you what the story is about.

Susan said...

Also, even though C has a teen feel to it, I think your girl is spunky and very young at heart.

Christiane R. Woerner said...

I like B better than C. The third option seems too young for me, but I'm aging out of your demographic, so go for C.

Sarah said...

B. #3 seems young... uh... blond-ish (if a book can seem that way without a ditzy blond on the front).

Donna K. Weaver said...

I voted for #1 but commented that #3 was a very close section--LOVE its quirkiness. It really depends on how close your mc fits.

Terri Ferran said...

Option C is my favorite (even though it looks YA-ish I love the socks and I'm late 40s so it works for me)

Option A - looks too generic and the pencil looks like an extension of her finger.

Option B - I don't think it gives any idea of the protag's quirky nature

Wonder Woman said...

I voted, and I voted for C. And after reading the comments....I am not alone.

Kristina P. said...

C. Hands, or feet, down.

AD said...

Both A and C come off as very teenish. If that Is the age you are targeting, great! B is more appealing to a slightly older demographic but doesn't seem to tie in with the subtitle all that much. I would say all three look good but maybe some more tweaking would get you where you want to be. Haha. Option 4?

monberrio said...

B

DeNae said...

A for teenagers, C for 20 somethings. No B; it no makey sense to me.

Barbarty said...

Definitely B - I have a thing about coloured nail varnish

Jenny P. said...

I think B is the most universally appealing. I liked C, but agree with others that it seemed a little younger.

Charlotte said...

I like B.

Karen Peterson said...

I'm sorry I missed out on voting! They're all really cute. Can't wait to see which one wins!

Barbaloot said...

I guess I missed the voting, but C and A were my favorites.
