In addition to the ongoing work to revise the paperback cover for Reflection: The Stranger in the Mirror, I decided to revamp the Ebook cover as well. For this format, I chose to go in a completely different direction both in terms of the image itself and by working with a designer. The result, which I am completely in love with, is below. Credit for the artistic work goes to West Coast Design.
My concept for the new Ebook cover(s) is to showcase a different character on each one. Thus, this cover focuses on the main character, Neirssa, at the outset of the story. My plans are for the second book to feature Caeneus, the third Raysel, and the fourth Rian. I feel like having an actual person on the cover gives more of an instant connection to the reader than an object–even if the object(s) are items exactly from the story. As one of my commenters pointed out on another platform, if the reader has no idea of the significance of the item right off the bat, it’s not really interesting to them until after they read the book.
Since the feedback on the paperback cover version still seems to be mixed, I’m thinking that I may opt to have a full wrap version of this cover made and just have both formats be the same.
