Help Needed!

I am having trouble making decisions today, so I thought I would ask for some help.

I’m not happy with the cover on my novella, Apple Blossom. The story of fighting my way through Cancer. The one I chose seems to be totally the wrong colour.

But what do you think?


Original Cover


New Cover?


Thanking you all in advance!  If this gets to be a habit, I may call upon you more often!

  1. Visually, I like the second one better, it’s stronger, but … if you hadn’t mentioned it was about your journey with cancer, I wouldn’t’ve known what the book was about. The new tag line offers a bit more info, but not the hook that it’s about cancer survival.

  2. Hi Jaye. I prefer the second one. The contrast is better, and the lettering more ‘definite’. I wouldn’t worry about other colours as long as what you have shouts ‘health’ – which, to me, the second one does much more than the first.

  3. I’m going to ask the significance of the book title? To me blossom means: spring, new life, young life, new hope, new awareness. Apple says: wholesome, healthy, rosy, ‘apple a day keeps the doctor away’ stuff. Green says: health, new life, abundance.
    Could this be why you’re not feeling the fit?
    When I think of cancer I go towards the rotten apple side, the death of healthy cells.
    Could you focus on the result of your fight? Like an Indian summer? Or a reemergence, or a spring/ summer flower blooming in winter?
    Not sure? I’m just throwing some thoughts out there.

  4. My initial reaction favors the warm green of the first cover. The second one is colder, yet presents a stronger image, thanks to the big blossom, and has a much stronger tag than the generic “my story.” Still, I’m not the buyer you’re targeting. Will be interesting to see how others weigh in here.
