Cover Design Time

I’m getting ready to publish a new short story. This one is a contemporary romance. The plot revolves around a woman who has been living as a virtual recluse for the past two years, since her husband was killed in Afghanistan. A friend talks her into taking some creative writing classes, and while at school, she bumps into the painting teacher. They strike up a conversation based on their mutual artistic talents and interests, and she ends up modeling for his 1920’s-inspired Impressionist painting.

While none of these covers actually look like the painting described in the book (because I can’t paint), the main character, Carol, does get her Louise Brooks on for the painting. So these are some of the options I’m considering.

So who wants to help me pick?

    I like the bottom left one, the blue background and the way her eyes are looking, I just like it. Good for you on your short story!

      Thanks. That one and the two black and white ones at the top are my favorites. The blue color won’t show up on a standard Kindle, but the picture will be in color on Amazon, and it might grab the attention better than the B&W ones.
