For the past half an hour I've worked on a blog post which I've ended up deleting. It'd turned into a pretty negative piece on how hard it is to sell books / get reviews / build a brand and so on and so forth.
The truth is Discoredia hasn't grabbed the attention of the public at large. Sales are slow. We needed a plan, and my publisher came up with a new cover which may help us turn things around.
I liked the old cover, but I also like this. The colour scheme is brighter, the figure fits Woodrose, and the eyes hint at the kind of over-arching control he exerts later in the book. It's a different style, and it may just work. Only time will tell, but for now let's celebrate the third (if we count the old self published version) incarnation of Discoredia's cover.
Third time lucky, or three strikes and you're out?
