Here it is… I mean, sort of… the very first mock-up of the cover for my new novel, as determined by excessive testing and polling. This is the background you liked best. This is the text setup you liked best.
I am still going to add some black sailing ships out at sea. And I am still altering the foreground. Our princess will end up looking much more like something other than a modern soldier, in keeping with the story.
Here is the whole thing, including the back cover, where the background photo wraps around. The white line represents the spine of the book, so it will obviously be thicker, and have sideways text on it. And I doubt that the text on the back cover will be those exact words… although I do sort of like that.
