Murder Wears a Veil is finished. Proofreaders have caught blunders, and the book has been edited thrice. Once I get back to formatting, the book will be ready to publish within hours.
So what’s the holdup?
I’m waffling over the cover! Argh!
As most of you know by now, I’m pretty stubborn. Maybe it’s not so much stubborn as I have to go with my gut – follow my instincts – listen to my inner voice – and all that jazz.
Each of the covers in my Two Sisters and a Journalist series has the same textured background but in a different color. As this book has a wedding with an orange theme, I chose orange for the background.
I like the cover. The book is a humorous mystery, and I get a kick out of the cake on a beach in Hawaii with the bride and groom toppers scuffling. However, I’ve had a couple of comments that the “orange sky” is odd. The pink sky in Murder Welcomes You to Buxley didn’t garner any comments, so I wonder if it’s just the fact that this background is ORANGE.
My cover artist went back to the drawing board, made a few tweaks, and dropped in a blue sky. Now I have to decide which cover to use. I always look at all the covers together as a collection. I want the covers to look cohesive with one another.
I like them both! I know which way I’m leaning, but I’d like to hear your opinion before I make a firm decision.
