Judging A Book By It's Cover

Continuing upon my journey after winning the makeover from "The Writing Bomb's" Jeff Bennington:

Jeff suggested I consider a new cover for THE BEAUTIFUL EVIL. It's not that he didn't like the cover I had--in fact he thought it was great. The problem, Jeff said, was that the cover implied a fantasy rather than a psychological thriller. Plus, it reflected the antagonist rather than the protagonist.

Don't get me wrong. I love my original cover and if someone would have told me a week ago I'd be changing it, I would have thought they were crazy.

And here I am, not only thrilled about the cover he's suggested, but blogging about the change I'm making--immediately.
This has already been a very exciting experience and I look forward with great anticipation the steps that lay ahead.

I loved your old cover! It made me download it... that mischievous looking sprite peeking from the tree! I hope you won't take it down from Goodreads because I pinned it. http://pinterest.com/ayalarachelle/book-covers-i-like/ But the new one is nice too. It's much softer and in my opinion, doesn't fit Constance Jacobson's vivid voice or promise of quirky craziness. That sprite on the old cover, she tempts you. She looks like fun and you wonder what she's hiding. It's almost as if you're invited into her world and you want to download that book, you want to open it, because you're curious what's going to jump out.
