Over to you!

This month on the Taller Books newsletter, Bookstore Addicts, we’re thinking about book covers. What makes a great cover? Do Kindle and Paperback covers work differently? And do we really judge books by their cover designs? (Spoiler: yes. Yes we do!).

In the newsletter, we looked at the designs for our Battle Ground Series paperbacks, and compared them with the updated designs for the Books 1-3 Kindle Bargain Box Set.

Which do you prefer? And which are more relevant to the books? Let us know in the comments, or drop us an email. We’d love to hear what you think!

Cover Reveal!

The Battle Ground Series Books 1-3 Bargain Box Set has had a makeover! We’re testing the new covers with new Amazon Ads and hoping to tempt some new readers who enjoy YA Dystopian stories.

We love our original covers, but we asked a marketing specialist to take a look at our books, and they suggested using covers that are a better fit for the YA Dystopia genre.

Book covers on Amazon are extremely genre-specific. YA Fantasy? You’ll need a young woman dressed in black, facing the reader, with a suggestion of magic going on around her. YA Romance? You’ll probably want cutesy handwriting for the title, and plenty of pink. YA Dystopia? A young person facing away from the reader, possibly armed, probably looking at the ruins of their civilisation.

Rather than change all our covers, we’ve decided to test the new designs on the Books 1-3 Box Set. So here it is! The new-look Kindle box set, featuring ruined buildings, a character walking away from the reader, and some almost-correct Home Forces body armour.

We’d love to know what you think!
