  1. I just checked out your cover idea from the previous post and combining the elements of it I think would work best for your cover. Color will attract more people to click on your book or pick it up. The darker theme with vibrant colors would be contrasting and interesting. In my humblest of opinions. Cheers.

    1. Thanks, Nicole.

      Yeah, I agree, too. Have added one with some colour.

      The clarity should improve when I update with a larger original text. But they were supposed to appear a little mushed, to be a little off/upsetting. 🙂

    This is a quick doodle I made during lunch of your first book cover idea. I like the cow and on the scooter, it would make me want to look through it more than this one. But if you do go with one of the ones up above, i’d go with the second one, and change the title and cover to one shade of blue and the catchphrase another color, and maybe make it plain text instead of the tiles. Again, imho. Hope it is of some help. Cheers

    1. Many thanks. It’s all helpful. 🙂

      I like your doodle. Thank you. And I am still toying with the cow on the scooter idea, as I do like it, and it embraces the more whimsical side of the story. I just put together a probably darker version of the eyes one, and will add that to the post, just to be seen.

      Oh, and the tiles play a big part in the story, as they relate to two of the main characters, and will continue to do so through any subsequent books, otherwise I would probably use a normal font.

      Thanks again. 🙂

  3. I looked at crosschatter’s bookcover sketch, Dave, and think it’s along the lines of something you might consider. The cow on the scooter, the tiles, both a big part of your novel. Whimsical–I think that’s the magic word here. Also liked the “youre grammars killing me” sidebar. Color will be a big factor also, I think…something bold and bright. I don’t see Denny as a “dark” character.
    Hope my thoughts are some small help.

    1. Always a help, thank you, Kathy. 🙂

      And yes, I do still like the cow-on-scooter image, as it was my original idea – I simply didn’t have the drawing skills.

      And I think you’re right re Denny – like most of us, he has his dark moments, but he’s not dark, and the scary eyes probably mislead. I didn’t want potential readers thinking it was all fun and games, though, as there are serious (zombie- and reality-based) moments within.

      I will give it some more thought. 🙂

      Many thanks.

    1. Thank you. 🙂

      I’m still not sure which to run with. I may have to go with an “eyes” based cover if I can’t muster a decent enough scooter-cow image. May even use an i-stock type generic zombie image. Still up for grabs just now. 😉
