The cover of my next book: your chance to provide feedback!

Cover 2

Cover 1

I was debating doing this, but it ultimately seems like a good idea. Here are two possible covers for the next edition of “Epiphanies, Theories, and Downright Good Thoughts…”. I went through some revamping as of late and this was the end result. The next rendition is about my life as a bachelor so I’ve gone back and forth on the proper way to showcase this with an attractive cover.

Thoughts? Comments? Extremely-harsh-and-rash critiques? I’d really like to hear what you have to say about the direction of this book cover. Mostly about the question mark though. And since these are “rough drafts”, please pay no mind to the two other books on the grass. Those will be disappearing regardless.

So let me know via WordPress, Facebook or even email. Thanks, everyone.

And thanks to Nik Sirna, owner of botmgroup for the cover and Colleen Ward of Pinwheel Photography for taking the pictures.

    Hi Josh!

    The question mark adds nice contrast to your cover, with the size and it being bright yellow. But, I don’t really know why it is there. It makes me think your book is more of a help-guide or a how-to manual. You’re not asking questions; your giving us the answers! 🙂 While cover 2 is simpler, I concentrate more on the title and therefore the message of your book.

    Good luck!

    p.s. Merry Christmas!!

    Hi there cute pic. I would suggest either a smaller question mark or place it in your right hand or on the bench not covering your arm. Women what to see all of you 🙂

    Ok i agree with Erica, the book is a statement, leave the question mark off.

    Btw check out Steve Santagati , hes the author of Bad boys finish first and code of honor, must reads. Hes on Facebook.

    He’s a great guy, I’m sure he can give some input too. Very helpful and knows all the right people to get your books on the shelves and into our hands!!!

    • Wow, thanks for the info. I’ll have to check it out for sure. I certainly cover much of that material in this book (with my own personal spin of course).

      Much appreciated!

  4. Consistency, no question mark.

    Merry Christmas Josh!
