Facelift for me? No way!
I prefer to give a facelift to my websites and my books.
The truth is that the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover" applies to judging people's character, but it doesn't apply to books.
Readers do judge books by the cover because that is the first thing they see when browsing for books.
I was playing with book cover ideas and decided to give a facelift to my fantasy series.
For now, I changed the covers for the eBooks on some of the selling sites and depending on the readers' opinion, I might change the paperback covers on some selling sites as well. Take a look at the present and new covers and let me know which cover grabs your attention more.
