So I have been told a few times now by various readers, that the cover for my book The Cracked Amulet, is a bit meh. What I’d like to know is: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COVER STYLE FOR A FANTASY BOOK AND WHY?
There is such a huge variety of covers out there, from the symbolic to the realistic:
From the up close and personal of a single character to a landscape:
All of them are eye-catching for different reasons and all appeal to different tastes. Also, over the years, tastes have changed, for what worked in the 70’s certainly would not this century.
Everyone has their own opinion of what works and what doesn’t. I’d be very interested to know those opinions, and I’m sure there are a great deal of other new authors out there who would love to know too.
TELL ME: What do you like?
All the best
