Would You Buy This Book?

I was fooling around the other day (when I should have been writing) and I made this mock cover of my WIP, Bad Seed. I know, I know, procrastination, thy name is Kristen. But I figured, since I made it, I'll see what y'all thought.

Would this cover get you to take a closer look? Would it intrigue you? This is a YA now, so keep that in mind. What are your first impressions of the book based on this cover?

Do you ever make mock covers for your stuff?

  1. That cover would get me to read the back cover copy :)

  2. That's pretty cool. And yeah, the title and cover combined would make me pick it up to read the blurb.

  3. Wow. Good work. Way better than the one book cover I created (which I should post on the blog, but it's pretty boring). I'd definitely pick this book up based on the cover - even if I didn't read your blog.

  4. My first thought was erotic, but I love that cover. It's cool and interesting. I would definitely want to read it.

  5. I'd definitely pick it up to read the back blurb. Good work! I haven't played around with covers for the books I write, but I have to admit I can visualize what the covers "should" look like when they get published some day. :-)

  9. It looks a bit scary story to me and I'm not into scary stories so I don't know that I'd pick it up. I hate to be the only downer...but I'm just being honest.

    As for making my own covers, I've never even thought about it but now that you mentioned it...I just might have to try.
