New Cover for Treespeaker

A few days ago, I put Treespeaker on Victorine Lieske's blog Why is My Book Not Selling to find out why it wasn't selling (well, obviously). The general consensus was that it might do to have a new cover and a tighter blurb. So I've just spent a couple of days messing about on Photoshop (such a hardship - you know how I hate messing about on Photoshop) and this is what I've come up with -

I was rather fond of the old cover, but those who hadn't read the book seemed perturbed by the 'blue thing' and the busy background, so we'll give this one a try and see if it makes a difference. I like this one too, really. Well, I must, mustn't I? Otherwise I wouldn't be using it. Actually, I like it a lot, but it's always hard to let your first-born go! However, there's no point in asking for advice (and Victorine is very generous with her help) if you're not going to take it. So...

I still have to work on the blurb, but I'll get to work on that tomorrow. Meanwhile Smashwords is now regrinding the whole book. I hope it makes it through for a second time!

OH - MY - GOD! I adore this one, Kate! It makes me jealous. I find this much, much more enticing. I'm going to have to re-buy this one later on just for the cover. ;)

Glad you like it, Ryan!
