I find the last cover with the red text the most enticing.

Thanks George, I'd already contacted my cover artist.
And blimey, she's quick!
These are the three new ones to choose from, any preferences anyone?

A or B, leaning towards B! Haven't yet read though so I might not be the best judge. (I do have it on my Kindle and am looking forward to it!)

I'll stick to C. The fonts on the first two are much better, but I can't get over the graveyard picture, which is a total turn off as far as I'm concerned, and no amount of font fiddling will get over that.

There's a graveyard in the story.

Doesn't matter what's in the book. Graveyards, churches and twee country cottages on the cover all make me run a mile. But then, I'm probably not the target audience anyhow Wink

There's a surreal quality to A2 which draws me in, making me feel a mystery lies behind the cover.

I like A a great deal. I'm not sure about 'a warm mystery story' as a tagline. It makes me feel like it's been reheated in the microwave! Does it really need a tagline? It'll have a description on Amazon that does the job better than a single line could.

No tag line at all? Never thought of that. It would get around the problem of how to classify it in a few words. Thanks for the suggestion, David.
And thanks all for your comments.

Many Thanks,

Ray.
A3 - attracted me, clear, and gives a feeling of mystery. But I had to think twice about the 'warm' contrasting with the misty 'graveyard'

D2 - Yep. No problems with the warm. The words 'warm mystery' made me stop and think.

Maybe David's idea of leaving the blurb to do the talking would work well.
