Sometimes, if something isn't working, you simply have to change things up a bit. That is what I'm currently in the process of doing for some of my novels that don't seem to generate the same type of attention as my other, better-selling (sometimes bestselling) titles do. The first two novels to get this makeover are Blind Eye and Text Message. With Blind Eye, I'm simply changing the cover since everything else with the novel presentation was fantastic (I have a full team of professionals that worked on this one). With Text Message, I'm changing the cover and having the ebook edition reformatted since this was one of the novels that was released in the early days of the Amazon Kindle program, back when we were all learning what could and couldn't be done with the html code inside of Microsoft Word.
The new covers:
Carl Graves at Extended Imagery was the artist behind these and I couldn't be happier with his work. Now to see if readers feel the same way. Covers are so important when it comes to selling novels. After all, if no one clicks on the tiny icon image, then no one is going to be buying the book.
