Help with Book Cover


I am not happy with my present cover for The Grave.  I have had another try and would love to know which you think might be an improvement.

I wanted to stay with the idea of the digging which is the beginning of the book because the burial-place resonates through the story.  I like the font and have kept that the same but what do you think about these.  Please vote at the end.  🙂

  1. I vote for 2. I like 3 as well, but it seems to have less to do with the title.

  2. I liked # 2 as well, but I think I still prefer the original cover. There’s more colour and the title, in white, stands out more than the red. Although the shovel isn’t quite as prominent in the original, I think the forest-like feel of the background is more in keeping with where they buried the first body and of the place where they hide out for awhile.

  3. I don’t much like the font on any of the covers, the red is very dull against the dullish background and the snow effect on the letters is strange. How about a pic of the shovel stuck in the ground taking the shot up against the sky as if you’re standing in the grave, or am I just getting carried away? I’d make the text colour brighter and use a more classic font like the one for Who Follows. Like that cover.

    • Okay – that’s really helpful as well. I think that the idea of standing in the grave is good but of course the activity took place at night so it would need to be a night sky – actually that’s not a bad idea. Thanks for the comment on the Who Follows Cover I have to say that it remains my favourite.
