Photo Book Cover Redesign - Need Your Thoughts and Opinions

Hello, all!

I'd like to get your opinion on this draft of a new cover for my novel, The White Raven. It's contemporary fantasy/magical realism with just a splash of romance about a cursed witch, set in modern times, who is shadowed by a white raven.

I want to put this in front of as many eyeballs as I can. I'm not 100% sold on it, maybe 80% sold, but I won't tell you why so that my thoughts don't skew your initial gut reaction. 

Go!

RE: Book Cover Redesign - Need Your Thoughts and Opinions

I think it's a good cover. And I think it would stand out as a thumbnail too.

What I Read

RE: Book Cover Redesign - Need Your Thoughts and Opinions

I think it's mostly very good - very striking.
The only changes I would be tempted to make are to remove 'A Novel' and make the author's name stand out more as I think it might be almost invisible at a smaller size.

RE: Book Cover Redesign - Need Your Thoughts and Opinions

I think it's a great cover and it will certainly convey the genre of fantasy/magical.
I would agree that the is no need for 'A Novel'  and your name could stand out more with a larger font so it can be read in smaller images used in social media and Amazon etc.
Good luck with the book.

Thanks, everyone! And you're right. In thumbnail size, my name almost disappears.
