A New Look for Painted Blind

Remember back in August, when Painted Blind went on blog tour? The tour was fabulous, but one little thing kept popping up in reviews– the cover.

For some reason, the cover wasn’t connecting with readers. It wasn’t doing its job. Much as I loved the photo we used in the original cover, I wondered if I should come up with a new look. Because I was just starting my masters, it was kind of a back-burner project UNTIL cover designer Emma Michaels announced a cover art sale on her Facebook page.

I clicked her link and browsed the site and THERE IT WAS– a photo of Psyche. When I saw it, I said, “That should the be the cover of my book.” So, I contacted Emma and bought the cover.

I am waiting patiently for the publisher to make the switch-over, but I am excited to give you a preview:

  1. I guess the old cover had a Contemp feel to it whereas this one definitely says Fantasy. I especially love the setting and the roses. Covers are so important. It’s great you’re determined to get the best one you can find. Good luck! 🙂

    1. I agree that this sells the fantasy element rather than the contemporary side. I think it will do better in the market that way. Thanks for stopping by Lexa!

  2. You already know I love it, but I wanted to say congrats! 🙂

  3. The cover is so important. I always fret over mine. I did change my cover of The Perfect Prom Date. Currently it is what I originally envisioned, I just couldn’t find the image the first time around and I was impatient to get it out there. Good luck with your new cover. I’m sure it will make a difference

    1. It’s a hard call to make, but I am hoping this will give the book wider appeal. Thanks for your comments, Marysue. I love all you dedicated bloggers!
