Please help me pick my cover! Divided Serenity #scifi

I would love some feedback on my cover design for my book. I am using 99 Designs, which has been a lot of fun so far.

I already have my favourites, but keen to find out what everyones opinion here is. I have tried to focus on the science fiction, but it does have fantasy elements ie outside the wall is a very different world, which is why a lot of the designs incorporate a sword.

Most of these designs have a few formats and I am particularly interested in the with/ without characters. I tend to want to avoid characters on the cover but in my initial feedback some people seem to love them…

I still would need to work though the details of the design with the elected designers.

But, initial thoughts would be great. I have tried with my family so far and they all like completely different designs!

Most of these have a few variations so I will see how voting goes and then will redo poll with some of the alternatives.

Happy to receive comments here or in the poll 🙂

  1. I completed the voting and was happy to see my 5 star choices in the first and third place position! I don’t agree with like the faces on the covers, I think they’re distracting honestly and my husband doesn’t like them because he feels it may be harder for a reader to identify themselves with the characters if they’re already “pictured”

    I’ve heard of 99 designs and now that I’ve seen it in action it’s one option we may consider in the future so thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to see your final design!

    1. Thank you, and appreciate your feedback. I am not keen on the faces either, but thought I would get some opinion 🙂 Really happy with 99 designs so far. I think it has helped me to narrow down the type of design, when I started I had a few idea but it’s not until you see them on the cover that you start to get a feel for what might be right for your book.

  2. Those are some awesome covers, Gee! I wasn’t sure how to vote over there, so I thought I’d leave comments here. I’m not usually a fan of characters on the cover of a book (unless they’re very well done), but I LOVED #23. So striking and visual! After that, I’m partial to #80 and #77. I hope the feedback helps, and congrats on the coming release!

    1. Thank you 🙂 Feeling pretty excited (and nervous) about this stage. And thank you for you feedback on the covers. Picking one is going to be tough, but the poll has really helped. Finalising the cover so another poll coming soon 🙂

    1. Hi, and thank you for checking out the book covers. I used 99 Designs for the cover and they do this through a design completion. I have now published the book 🙂 You can see the final cover here https://glcromarty.com Would love to hear what you think of the final design. PS. I wish I could create a cover that good!

    1. Nice to have you here. I have been writing scifi for a while although this blog is more about writing in general than scifi specifically. I have a seperate site for the book. GLCromarty.com.
      Many authors have a seperate site for their book and blog. I follow far too many blogs to list here, but twitter is a great place to look for readers and writers of any genre. 🙂
