The people have spoken above the cover concepts for The Mark of the Spider: A Black Orchid Chronicle.
Unfortunately, they did not say what I wanted.
Half of the comments — and forty of you chimed in via comments, emails, and texts — favored the Blue version. One-quarter each liked the Green and Red concepts.
I initially favored Red but switched my vote to Blue. I’m afraid Red had to go.
I asked my design team at Damonza.com to make changes to the Blue and Green concepts, primarily to make both the orchid and the spider web tattoo more prominent.
Here are the finalists. Input always welcomed.
And thank you to all of you who expressed a preference in Round One. I hope you’ll still order the book when it comes out in August.
I vote blue – the character and the coloring looks more evil and less movie hero to me
Still favor the blue.
Blue, blue, blue. What’s with the blue? How about a little Green love?
