Thank you everyone for voting on the cover design for Aleks Mickelsen and the Call of the White Raven. The overwhelming victor with 81% of the votes, was this beauty:
Some of your responses to the survey:
Very tough to choose. I finally went for the more purple background, but both covers work.
Keira: Tell me about it! I loved both and that’s why I needed everyone’s help to pick the best cover.
I like the more vibrant colors.
Keira: Me too 🙂 The beautiful colors in the cover illustration just begged for something to match it.
It seems to match the color scheme of the other books better.
Keira: Thank you so much. I thought it did too.
I like the background color and it seems more in line with the scheme with the rest of the books
Keira: I really liked how different elements in the background popped with these colors.
Option A, being green and light, washes out several of the background details and the white Raven is also less noticeable. Additionally, if the background is meant to be mountainous, the darker color fits better thematically.
Keira: It’s actually ice! The icy background represents a new character in the books, while also tying in thematically with Aleks’ previous book cover which featured crystals.
On the not chosen cover:
I like the color scheme better it’s brighter and easier to read the title.
Keira: That was one of the reasons I really liked that option. I also thought the greens would tie in well with book two in the series which has a lot of blues and teals.
Looks nice in line with the others. It’s earthy and beautiful.
Keira: Thank you. I thought it fit with the earthy colors that were pulled in through the other covers as well.
