Rejected Book Covers

So these were the initial cover concepts from the publisher that didn’t make the cut. Except for the last one which was eventually modified to be the final cover. Did I make the right choice?

I thought this one was simple and to the point. But hard to read by a mile. If you were in a bookstore, could you even really read this unless you were super up-close?

I liked the yellow. And I really liked having a person on the cover. There was something about this cover that just didn’t resonate with me.

Here is the first version of the final cover. The white just wasn’t attention-getting enough, right? And the fonts were too “grungy” for me.
