Help me choose a cover image!

Recently, Brekke Felt did a photoshoot for my book CONDEMN ME NOT, which is the story of my 10th great-grandmother Susannah North Martin, who was hanged in Salem, accused as a witch. We used my daughter for the cover model and because I'm probably looking at the images with "mom" eyes, I need feedback! I've narrowed it down to the 4 images below. Let me know your vote in the comments!

#1


#2



#3



#4

I'm partial to the first one.

The only one I would not use is the last one because the chains are blatantly modern and take away from the time period you're trying to recreate.

At first I thought # 1, but on second thought, #3.

Cheryl said...

#3 is my favorite too!

Lynette said...

Either 1 or 3 :)

Sydney Anderson said...

#1 is my favorite and #3 is my second favorite. :)

Krista said...

#1 is my favorite, followed by #3.

Heidi Robbins said...

I like all but the last one. #1 is the spookiest, #3 is the most dynamic composition- it has movement. #2 showcases the dress the best and I like the hint of face.

Lisa Faber said...

I really like #1.

Peggy Urry said...

I like #3 the best. I think it has a sense of intrigue.

Nicole Peck said...

I like #3!

#3 jumped out at me. It would grab my attention sitting on the shelf at the
store or looking at books on Amazon.

It's a tie between #1 and #3. Both do a great job of catching your attention.

I like #3 the best. The dress looks too modern for the time period and in 3 you can't tell as much. #4 works for the same reason, although, the chains do look too modern.

All of them are great but I like #1 & #3 best.

Your daughter is a great model! I actually like #2 best, followed by #1, then 3.

I like #1. I like creating characters in my head not having a preconceived idea of what they may look like.

Aimee Brown said...

I love #3 given what you told us about the book.

Lisa Lu said...

3 is it for me! Although the others are lovely!

Guess I'm different, but I like #2 best because it shows off your beautiful daughter best. And the partial face is intriguing.
