So, you know how I did the Game On cover reveal a while ago? Well, it was hugely popular with everyone, lots of good comments for the work my friend Bobbie did on the design, and I thought it was perfect. It IS perfect. But while getting ready for the blog tour, there was some confusion about who the story is actually aimed at.
The young, cute looking characters led some to believe that Game On is YA, when in fact it fits better into the category of NA, contemporary romance, and/or chick lit.
This is something I should have considered before, and to those of you who pointed it out, please don't feel bad. It's something I needed to know so I could create a cover that fits better.
After much research, a couple of emails to Jolene Perry (thank you!), and my original designer, I decided that I am having two covers. For the Kindle and other ebook versions, I will use a new design. For the print book, I am keeping the old design. Having different covers isn't ideal, especially when they are so different, however, I loved the first cover and I don't want my friend's work to have been a waste. She is super talented, and I'd like to show off what she made.
So, this is my new cover:
What do you think? Less YA? :D
ALSO - I will send the new cover to everyone on the Blog Tour who I have already emailed. With the exception of Jackie Felger and Nick Wilford, I have sent everyone's guest posts out, with all the book info. If I haven't sent you anything and you were expecting me to, please contact me on kyralennon (at) gmail (dot) com.
P.S If this post is a bit badly spelled and gibberish, it's because I'm watching the Olympics opening ceremony! I am very impressed with it, it's lots of fun!
