I prefer cover #2
2 for sure! I mean either work but I prefer 2. :)
#2 - I find the title more "readable".
No good reason--I vote for #2. My eyes are drawn to that one more......great timing--I am in need of a new, good book!! rock on, Jeff
I like two the best.
#1. For some reason, the highlighted letters seem to more reflect a barren theme.
#1 is my choice
I prefer #2
I like #2
I prefer two. One overshadows the rest of the cover.
#2, in my opinion
I like #2 best, lol but either way I'm excited to Read it Next Week regardless of which cover you use..! Thanks for the email to let me know, Take it Easy Jeff.
I think #2 is the better one. That is the one where my eyes went to first.I think Alive and killing cover is better than Foreign Deceit. Not so "Dark".
#1, the font stands out!
I like the white lettering. It just stands out better for me. T grady
#2, catches the eye.
#2Looking forward to the new book...
They both look Good but I pick #2!
#1 - to me, it seems to go with the title a bit better. I'm ready when y'all are. Katy
Book 2,it's more of a fluffy. COLORADO, snow feel to it.
#2. I think it's eye-catching--as in stands out better.
One jumps out at me much more than two. I vote for one.
#2. I think it's more eye appealing. Stands out against the background better.
I like #2 - Title stands out more.
I like #1. The dark word gives me a sense of foreboding.
Number one is more in line with the title, dark and kind of forbidding compared to #2.
Must say I like the light but the dark says 'evil' so you have your work cut out for you. 5 out of 8 have had light titles, one orange and two dark. No matter the color, I can hardly wait to get my hands on the book.....love them all!
I like #1 better.
#2 - It blends into the photo and becomes part of the (supposed) direness of whatever is being represented by the background.
#2...while the dark word mirrors the sentiment, #2 will be more eye catching.
I like #2. I think that the all white title will show up better on a shelf. Also I like how the white title brings the snow up into the sky/top of the page
I like #2 best
Number 2 gets my vote. The trees in the background are more distinct. They have a mystical look. They don't fade into the letters like they do with #1.
#2...While the darker word mirrors the sentiment, the lighter word will be more eye catching to prospective buyers.
#1. It looks the spookiest.
I like the first one! Well, I like the second, too, and always err on the side of darker, but I think with the name (Dire and a Wolf book? Cool!) that the lighter one looks more...foreboding. Maybe it's me! Lol. I also love that you will take the time to talk to your fans and keep us updated. It is much appreciated and I can't wait to read Dire!
I prefer #1. I know they'renearly identical, but to me, #2 says nice time in the snow, and #1 feels more suspenseful.
Number 2. Can't wait.
Enjoy your books. #2 looks best.
Number 2 please!
#1 is more "dire". my being an optimist, I vote for #2.
Enjoy your books.
I prefer #2.
Love both. I have a slight preference for # 1 though.
#1 the font & upper cover (moving down) in dark took the eyes away from the book. To attract people eyes the colors are important. The coves that tend to had mixes (dark, clear, hot mixes attract people eyes faster)So, I my vote goes to #2 (even I will use a clear tone or a degrade of tones at the upper cover)
#1 stands out and looks a little more foreboding.
Hi Jeff,I like number 1.Sharron Thompson
#1 for sure...it has that "DIRE" look about it.
#1. It looks more Dire with the dark letters.
Definitely #2. Looking forward to the 2/4/16 release of Dire!
Lookin forward to Dire! I vote #2
#1.....I prefer the dark tone....lends a 'dark' tone to the cover.
#1 because the dark lettering casts a more sinister or "dire" meaning.
It also has more 'presence.'
Jeff, I like the #1 cover better.
Number 2. The title is clear; it pops.
I am sooo ready for your next book, Dire! The David Wolf series have each one been as good, or BETTER, than the previous one. I am not expecting anything less with your newest, as you are my favorite author! Thank you Jeff Carson, and I hope there are many more David Wolf books to follow !
I like #2. I like the imagery of the white type that balances with the snow on the bottom of the cover. I think the black tried gets lost.
Hi Jeff, #1 looks more "dire" than #2. Look forward to reading it.Enjoy!
I like #1!
#2: i like the way the title picks up the snow on the cover.
#1 -- A bit more foreboding!
Personally I like #1 best. Seems to fit 'dire' the word better and to me works nicely with the background whereas #2 looks a bit out of place.
#1--It gives the sense of "bad feelings" or "ominous foreboding".
I like #1 better...:)
I think the dark lettering gives the sense of more urgent,hence, more dire.
Mr Carson, I prefer #1
Best of luck with the new book Jeff. You'll certainly have plenty of sales here in Ireland. Chris. PS #2 stands out more..
#1 better contrast
#2 - stands out a little more - my first choice#1 - a bit more ominous - not having read the book, it may be the better choice for the material
I like #1, it seems more in tune with the background.
#2 caught me eye first. The white lettering really stands out.
#2 by a hair...
#1. Like the dark letters contrasting with the snow and trees. More danger lurks in this cover.
Dire #1 gives me the chills looking at it so I think that is the most appropriate considering the title! Thanks for asking!
I like #2 the best
#2 is more eye catching
#2. Ready for another GOOD David Wolf book. Thanks, Jeff.
I like #1
#2 has the best contrast with the background making it easier to read, especially on my B & W paperwhite.
Number 2 draws the eye more.
Definitely #1 darker coloring of letters suits the actual word... DIRE!!!
I like #2, but either is ok.
I like #1 best as it jumps out at you and puts the emphasis on "dire," a pretty dramatic word with which to entice your readers.Constance Bowblis
#1 is more ominous and better represents the title in my opinion.
#1 is more ominous and better represents the title.
I prefer #1, I think it better represents the title. It gives me a sense of foreboding (shiver!). Thanks for asking!
Number 1 looks dangerous. So I choose #1.
#1 Looks dangerous. I like #1.
I vote for #2
Great illustrator....#1 looks more sinister...heart-stopping reading ahead....#2...makes one feel the snow is deep and dangerous, like the words within...So...id be 100% ok w/either.....I know one. Thing for certain....it's going to be a great read! Thank you for getting it out-there for us to read! I'm so ready for the next one!
2 is "cleaner"
I like #1.
#2 gives me more of the 'scary shivers'!:)
#1 - The dark "DIRE" against the snow - Perfect!
Definitely #1. The dark lettering seems to better depict the "dire" ominous content. I also like the light/dark contrast, which seems to show up better and tie the cover art together, while #2 seems bland.
Cover #2 The white lettering of Dire Stands out more and makes the cover more bold
Number one is more mysterious
#1 Love every book!
#1, I think it has more 'punch' with the title being the dark colour :). Looking forward to adding it to the other seven I already have :)Bejay
I also like number 1. It seems more sinister, which to me implies something as "Dire".
Cover Number 2
I'm going for #1. Can't wait to read it.
#2 more pronounced on a shelf.
I prefer #1. Can't wait to read the book.
2 is the winner!
#2 is the winner.
#2 only be ause when I first opened the page that was the one my eyes went to... But either would be good.
#1 fits the background better.
#1; more threatening
#2 only because that is the one my eyes went to when I opened the page... Both would work.
2 looks Best.
I like #1 the best. I think it's easiest to see against the rest of the cover. Good luck.
I think #1 looks the best against the cover graphics. Good luck!
#1 looks more sinister to go with the title.
#1 has my vote
#2 seems more visually balanced and appeals to hope and light at end of whatever is dire.
#2 seems more visually balanced and lends the hope of light at the end of whatever is dire.
No.2 gets my vote but i'd rather read the book there great.
Number one, its more dark and sinister
Number 2....The title does not distract from the cover picture as number 1 does. But I'll read it regardless :-D
