New Book Covers Give Life to Struggling Fiction

New Cover
The Louvre Still Stands by Arwen Chandler

I've been doing a lot of research about book covers, and one thing I read suggested if you're not selling a good story, it may be the book cover. I think that's been part of my problem, so I revamped the covers. I'm not sure if the cover for The Louvre Still Stands is quite perfect yet, but I like it. I hope this new book cover will give life to my struggling fiction. Let me know what you think in the comments.

The Louvre Still Stands Book Blurb:

Old Cover
In a perilous age where humanity lives under the control of the Militarian government, one woman risks life, limb, and ship, for a lost treasure trove on old Earth.

Gwyndalaria Casteliano, Captain of the starship Pleiades, leads her Ex-Militarian companion Adrik, and her childhood friend Rodrigo on the treasure hunt of a lifetime. While the common belief is that old Earth has been completely lost after the great alien wars, Gwyn knows it’s ripe for the taking. Intelligence, bought for a steep price, proves that the Louvre still stands. Gwyn leads her comrades on an adventure of a lifetime, as they make a desperate attempt at fortune. It’s too bad Militarian troops are hot on their trail.

The Louvre Still Stands is a piece of science fiction, that nods its head toward spacers like Malcom Reynolds, and is sure to leave readers wanting more.

New Cover
Odds & Ends: A Collection of Short Fiction by Arwen Chandler

Another cover I decided to revamp is Odds & Ends. I really like the new cover much more than the old one.

Odds & Ends Book Blurb:

Open the door to a gripping psychological adventure. Odds & Ends: A Collection of Short fiction abandons all restraints and takes readers on an intense journey through world after world of strange, scary and humorous events. Arwen compels readers to take part in a riot where the perpetrators are not what they seem, and introduces unsuspecting fair goers to a sexual sadist serial killer who frequents the county fair. She presents a dystopian world where teaching children outside of school is illegal, and the government destroys those who don’t comply. Odds & Ends is a gritty and thrilling work of short fiction. Brace yourself as turn the page, and see if you can survive in the shadow of the Ferris wheel. Remember, things are never quite what they seem.

Odds & Ends is a gritty and thrilling work of short fiction.

New Cover
Blue Springs, Kansas by Arwen Chandler

And the last new book cover I changed is Blue Springs, Kansas. I really like the new cover!

Blue Springs, Kansas Book Blurb:

Old Cover
For years famed rodeo photographer Laura Garrett never felt more comfortable than behind the lens of a camera. She’d made a career following her sexy, bull-riding boyfriend from their ranch in Texas to Wyoming and back again. Ever at his side, her trust in Clark wavers as evidence piles up he’s been having affairs with buckle bunnies. Suddenly, she finds herself stranded in the middle of the night at a bus depot in Blue Springs, Kansas. Alone, Laura has to face the consequences of her fast paced life. Will she settle for the sexy cowboy she’s loved for so long, or will she pull up her big girl panties and carve out a life of her own? Can she learn to trust again? And, who is that Italian gentleman that’s making eyes at her?

Blue Springs, Kansas is a romantic western read that takes readers on a whirlwind ride. Strap yourself down and cinch up your latigo. Can you hold on for 8-seconds?

Well, these are my current revamped book covers. It is still a learning process, and I am anxious to see what difference, if any, these new covers make on sales. To learn more about creating book covers check out Creative Indie.
