    I like the first book cover, definitely not the font of the US version…


  2. adinparadise says:

    I prefer the first cover. I like the colour of her hair better, and the darker cat looks far more mysterious.Your name is much better all in one line.


  3. The second book cover appeals more to my eye…it looks fresher and crisper.


  4. I also like how the white cat stands out. It attracts the eye immediately as apposed to the darker one. They do look good, Col.

    I like the SA edition. The font of the name of the book and the colours of the cat look better.


  6. nrhatch says:

    I like the original cover a bit better for three reasons: the darker cat that sneaks up on you, the title lettering, and your name across the bottom in a single line.

    In the newer version, it looks like it might be two co-authors: “Leslie Hyla” and “Winton Noble.”

      Those are, actually, very valid points. Thanks!
      I must say, though, that for the lettering my own personal preferance is the newer one.


      • nrhatch says:

        I went back and looked again . . . and do like the title lettering on both covers.

        I thought that the thinner blue letters stood out more, but the steel gray reflects the play of the sword. And the thicker bolder lines holds appeal. So be guided by YOUR gut.

    Feedback and caption done but you’re not getting me to tweet on twitter because then I will be a tweet-faced-twit. 😀

    Lovely jubbly little verse;
    I can’t rhyme, can only curse!
    Little dog, time is marking –
    Till the start of Starlight Barking!

    Looking forward to the rest after the holiday when my time will again belong to me, but it is nice to give the time to the keeping us very busy grandies.
