What do you think of these book covers?

I’d love your thoughts! I’ve decided to update my first two book covers because I don’t think they communicate well what they’re about – they’re not genre-appropriate. I realised I needed to better signal to potential readers what they might find inside.

My target genres include:

  • Gay
  • Comedy
  • Romance
  • Contemporary.

I’ve pulled together some comparison titles (and their genres). This is what I’m aiming for, what I’m aiming to be seen alongside:

With these in mind, consider my updated book covers below which are a work in progress. I’ve included the current versions for comparison.

My question is: do you think I’m hitting the target genres with my updated covers? As in, do you have an idea of the type of book they are, and do they fit with the comparison titles?

Note: I’ve kept the covers small because that’s what people will see when zooming through Amazon. Also, my biggest focus is the first book (Duck and Dive) because that’s what will be getting splashed around the most.

These are yet to be finalised, so I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please let me know, either by commenting on my posts on Facebook or Twitter, or dropping me a message via my contact form. I can’t wait to hear from you!

And if you’re keen to find out more about the books, or grab yourself a copy, check out the Rise and Shine series page.
