New Cover!


I don't know if this would be considered a relaunch or not, but I had a new cover designed for Scary Mary and am publishing a print edition through CreateSpace. I've tried to once again proofread the text, but I'm sure I have missed something and the conversion to CreateSpace raised all sorts of fun formatting issues.

The cover was done by Char over at Wicked Cover Designs. I rather like it. I haven't gotten hold of a print copy yet, but I've gone ahead and uploaded the newly edited eBook versions with the new cover. Tell me what you think of the new cover. I'll be honest and say a few people have told me that they still prefer the old cover, but personally I think this one is better.

I'm planning on getting a new cover of Stalking Shadows done as well as another edit completed for a print edition of that as well. And then there's Unicorn Bait. I'll never be done with these novels it seems.

I like it. Great cover!

Thank you, Rhonda! The response does seem to be pretty positive so far. I'm really happy about that.

i like the cover, but, mary is a goth and the girl on the cover does not have dark black eyeliner or black lipstick. i would have rather seen her that way.

S.A. Hunter said...

Tiffany & Gina,

That's a very good point. I didn't tell the designer to goth up the picture and that was an oversight by me. She did make the model's hair black when it's actually a light/medium brown, which is pretty cool. If the model is used for the next cover, I'll try to get her gothed up. Thanks!

I downloaded a copy of 'Scary Mary' and loved it! Well done. It was a cute and fun story, and I really enjoyed your writing. Now on to 'Stalking Shadows'...

Claire Gray said...

Ive now read Scary Mary and Stalking Shadows. Certainly good reading. I had wondered why the cover image on my ebook kept changing, so now I know!

S.A. Hunter said...

Hi Nickie,

I'm glad you like Scary Mary. I hope you like Stalking Shadows, too!

Hi Claire,

Sorry for the confusion! I wondered if readers would see the new cover after downloading the book with the old cover. I'm sort of glad people do get the new cover, but I guess it would be a bit jarring. Glad you liked the books!

I downloaded Scary Mary and read in one night. Download the stalking Shadow the next night and could not put it down. Loved both books, can't wait for a new book!!

Thank you for two amazing books. When hurricane Sandy hit Boston I had luckily downloaded both of your books in the Scary Mary series on my kindle.....the lights went out and I read! I loved them and can't wait for the third book!!!!

S.A. Hunter said...

Johna,

That's so sweet of you. Thanks!

Jill Compagnone,

Oh my, Sandy was frightening. I'm so glad Scary Mary helped you get through it. It's on honor that you'd read my stories during that.

When does Long Dead come out

weird thing to say, is she not wearing clothes!?!?
seriously???
I am a bit overwhelmed by that, though the new cover is awesome, but I agree with Tiffany € Gina, or however you type it, Goth it up and I'd print it and post on my wall!!


An eager reader, Kelly, and man I write a lot! I'm trying to write little!!!

Sara said...

I would love to give all your books to my younger sister for Christmas!! How do I get the printed copies?

S.A. Hunter said...

Sorry for the delay in responses. I was taking part in National Novel Writing Month and driving myself crazy.

Angelica - Sadly, I can't set a date at this time. I'm hoping late November 2013. It is very far off I know, but I'm only half way through the story writing wise and am focusing on Dragon Prey right now.

Anonymous - She is wearing clothes! It's strapless though. I've been told it seems a little too risque for her, but I liked the model's looks a lot and with it being her back I didn't think it was bad. A more gothy look is probably a good idea, but don't know how to do that with the current cover. Will have to try extra hard with the next.

Sara - Oh man, I've been struggling with Creatspace just to get Scary Mary up and ready and it hasn't happened yet. Stalking Shadows hasn't even started the process. I'm very sorry. I hope to have Scary Mary ready soon, but it may not be in time to ship for Christmas. I'm very sorry. :-(
