Think this post is eligible for the-most-obvious-title-of-the-year award? Maybe? Score.
I had a pretty amazing day yesterday. I got to eat homemade pizza, got a free chiropractic adjustment (yay for patient referrals!), and had some fun conversations with awesome people on Twitter. What really made my day was the lovely review Wake received from The Blank Page.
One line in particular jumped out at me:
I wasn’t really sure what this was about based off the preview and the cover. Some pills and a cryptic title? But OH MAN, it’s so much more.
It’s far from the first time I’ve seen mixed response to Wake‘s cover art. Some people like the cryptic simplicity, while others think it doesn’t fit the spirit of the book or look like other covers in the same genre. I’ve been considering the possibility of getting a new design for the cover through 99designs.
Which is where you all come in. Please let me know your feelings about the question of a cover redesign using the poll below, or by leaving me a note in the comments. The poll may look wonky on some browsers — I apologize for that.
Should Wake get a new cover?
