How about some original graphic art? E-mail me a thousand bucks, and I'll get right on it. Evil_monster

So I've got it narrowed down to three.

3.) [Image: cover1_zps771b4a14.png]



I'll be gone and without internet for the next 2 weeks, so I'll mull it over.

RE: Help me pick an updated book cover. Bacon and waffles.
I have to say... this is fantastic! Congratulations that they are doing well!!

I too like the one with the Angel, preferably for the "new testament".
Hmm... and I like the guy with the outstretched arms mainly because its landscape looks like the "holy land" - to me, that really says "old testament".

Only criticism: I really do not like the thin black line at the very bottom at all. It makes them look cheap.

I'ma save my moneyz 'n get me the good books. Thumbsup

Don't get excited until I pop out my 2nd book. 873% of the humor, 0% of the tedious scripture.

It's been 5 months and several hundred copies later, and my mother still refuses to acknowledge that it exists. Even though I have like 4 copies laying around and people ask her about it. My religious grandma called me her "brave and outspoken grandson" which was the closest thing to a reference that I got.
Congratulations! I hope you make a lot of cash on the controversy before people become "god, whatever Drinking Beverage " like in Europe.
You have a cool grandma.

As for the book, the top half is always nice but the lower just isn't good. I see you love the idea (me too), but I'd say this photorealistic photograph doesn't belong on book covers. You need a simple (dark) background, not a fully-colored gravel. You need a scene, black bible, black background, divinely white light, concentrated with the lens right on the bible... The same thing, less colors, more stylized. People need to see the Bible smoldering under focus, not the bright sunny summer day, grass, twigs sand and stuff, that's superfluous.

But that's just my 50 hallers.

You can somewhat fake the bottom picture too.

That looks way better! Nice work Muffs.

BC do away with the word "by", unecessary...kinda like god.

I agree; clever and gorgeous, Muffy! Thumbsup

And yes - I don't need the "by" either. Instead, maybe along the bottom it could say in script italics: eBook Bestseller by Brian Shuty That way it won't be intrusive but will help to lead the eye around visually.
