Cover Design Redux

Readers and book bloggers have spoken and I most defintely paid attention! As many of you already noticed, I have done a new cover redisign for Parallel. This was a tough decision, as I really liked the last design (yes, I'm on cover #3 now...the first cover, well, it's a long story...), however, there were a few folks out there that weren't impressed. This is in no way a reflection of fab cover designer, Robin Ludwig, as the design ideas for the (old) cover was strickly my own. So when I recieved a few reviews that mentioned a dislike for the cover, I went back to Robin and we came up with a whole new look:

Now this is a cover that truly reflects Etta's story. For those that haven't read Parallel yet, let's just say, there's a diary involved, pictures that are uncovered, and a pretty kick a@# scene with butterflies. I am so honored to work with such a great designer who not only agreed to the redesign, but was able to take my new ideas and put them together to create this cover. The design elements will go well with the other covers I have planned for the Travelers Series, so that's always a plus!

I hope that readers will enjoy the new design and those that were put off by the old one will take a second look and discover something new to add to their Kindles and Nooks!

  1. Love the new cover, Claudia! It's just great!

  2. That is a lovely cover, though I've truly loved every one of your covers. :) Still, it's important to give your readers what they want!

    I'm glad you settled on something that you feel you can use throughout the series. It's important to have something of a theme, I think.

  3. Thanks Kate! I loved the other covers too, but I got tired of readers/reviewers commenting on their lack of love :) And yes! I already have ideas in mind for the next two/three books with similar design concepts. Yay!
