That being said, I did have a few ideas to update the cover and I had been mulling them over for a long time. Recently, I had the opportunity to work on those ideas and this is the result. The new cover is similar in terms of content, but very different otherwise. It's more revealing, more eye-catching, and frankly, more modern. So far, the response to these changes has been very positive. My only complaints are that the cover loses something when it's shrunk, and that's not great when 99% of your sales come from the internet, and also that the font is really cool at full size but a little strange looking when it's shrunk. I still think it's better than the old one in terms of marketability, and I'm curious to see if this change affects sales at all. So, to put it in perspective, I'll post the old cover alongside the new one:
I've already uploaded the new version for Kindle and hope to ship the new paper version in the next few days.
