Covers, Links, and an update

Posted by Necia Phoenix on April 11, 2012 in Boost the signal, publishing, Web Site stuff, Writing |

I’m trying to decide on a cover for this #zombiething. I think I know the title, but the cover is aggravating me. So here are a few versions, input always welcome.




Trying to get the setup to have these side by side, doesn’t seem to be working.

So that’s what I am doing right now, I REALLY like the top one, but the teddy bear is too dark. The white teddy in the second one doesn’t look right, the third one is close to what I envisioned for this project’s cover, but I keep going back to the first one thinking but, but, but…

Anyways, there’s a new post up by J.A. Marlow on ebook pricing over here, well worth the read. Dean Wesley Smith also has an updated post on ebook pricing over here. I will admit, I have few thoughts on the matter at the moment. I need to sit down and really do a in depth read and think about it.

Agent Rachelle Gardner posted 6 Reasons Authors Self-Publish, which is not a bashing post, which I was happy to see. Kudos to her for that!  The comments are also very interesting and enlightning. Check it out. 🙂


This move has been brutal on me and I’m just barely getting back on track, please forgive me.

I’m still writing, still happy with self publishing. Just very, very; distracted. 

Anyways, any suggestions on the covers are more than welcome.

    On aesthetic alone I’d definitely go for the first one, but I’m not sure what the story is about. I think it works best though because:
    1. It looks creepy
    2. It doesn’t look so digitally rendered as the other two
    3. It has personality and immediately makes me wonder what the story is about!

    Hope it helps 😀

    I agree with Scarlett. I do like the first cover better than the others, but I also agree with you on the bear. So why not try a red teddy or the white one? Thinking of zombies I go straight to lots of blood so maybe the bear is covered with blood or something. I don’t know the story but those are some options that you could think on. Like with my book titles – when I get to covers – I’d take major elements of the story and piece them together. It frustrates me sometimes but I always come up with really cool titles IMO.
