Hope all is going well today. A short post, as I have a few things going on today. First up, it’s my birthday, so happy birthday to me. Feeling older, but not wiser. Go figure! 🙂
Today’s your last day to enter the Goodreads Second Chance Giveaway. It’s your chance to get a free electronic copy of Second Life. So, don’t forget to enter, if you’re interested. It’s also the last day to get a discounted version of Life First via Smashwords.
Lastly, I’ve updated the covers of both Life First and Second Life, as I’ve gotten feedback that the covers, while interesting, aren’t neccessarily eye-catching or eyeball stopping (so you pause to click the description). In addition to the feedback about eye-catchiness, I updated the covers due to the changing nature of the series. The original covers would have been OK if the series’ main focus had remained dystopian government threat. However, Second Life has a very distinctive romance component, and I’m hoping to convey that more with the new cover. The two new covers also work as a series, in that they have a similar feel to them, which I think is important in series covers. (The original covers I also thought worked well as series covers.) Anyway, with no further ado, here are the new covers. (Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts):
The new covers are up on Amazon and slowly filtering out to the other retail sites. (I use Smashwords as a distributor. It’s a massive pro to make document changes only once and get them pushed to five different vendors. However, the con is that Smashwords is massively slow in pushing out changes.)
