What do you think?

Is #1 too hokey looking?

Is #2 too overdone with the fire?

  1. I like number 2. It’s a good mix of action and realism. I might say number 3, but I’m not sure people would recognize what the snowblower is.

  2. Gordon, I think #2 is a good mix of action and realism in a great color scheme without being overdone. I especially like the placement of EZ on the tracks in #2 and #3 more than placement in #1. Shows he isn’t afraid of placing himself in whatever danger he must in order to get the job done.

    I like #2 the best .

  4. Put me down for #2 because it looks like EZ is really having it out with that big ol burning locomotive and #3 looks like a big fan is on fire and EZ is getting blown over while trying to shoot the blades off of the thing. #1 looks like he is shooting at the Knight Girl and we just can not have that.

  5. Thanks, Tom! I appreciate your comments!

  6. I like #1. I just found you this morning, and when I saw the book covers, I was drawn to #1. I like the blue over the blue/green of the other two, and I thought the fire took away from the clean lines. As a thumbnail, the title stands out better on #1. I do like the position of EZ in #2 & #3 – turned away with the gun aimed behind him. (But I’m no artist, so I’m just piping up with what I like.)

    I wanted to see what your books were about, so I “looked inside” Knight’s Big Easy. Love the opening. You’ll see a sale this morning; that was me. I don’t even have a Kindle; I have a Nook. I’ll have to finish reading it on the Kindle for PC, but am happy to do so. Thanks!

    I like #1. It’s strong and simple in design and use of color…. red and black.

  8. I vote for #2, very appealing image, great action!

    • Thanks Charlie! I appreciate your vote! I think the story will live up to the cover! It’s been a blast to write. I’m hoping to have it out by the end of next month.

  9. Jeremy L of Ft Worth, Texas, come on down! You are the winner of the Christopher Elbow Artisan Chocolates!
