Have you ever wanted a chance to influence publishers in the design of a cover? Do you think you know what catches a reader's eye? Now here's your chance!
Last year, the anthology Evolve, edited by Nancy Kilpatrick, presented the new vampire, the one we see today and readers will see in the immediate future.
Nancy has edited another vampire anthology that takes the undead beyond 2012, into 2032, 2082, and 3000--the vampire of the future. The publisher, Edge SF&F, would like your help and VampChix has kindly offered to host this quick survey. Here's a rare opportunity for readers to help select a book cover that you like.
The cover for Evolve is to the left, for comparison.
The other two (called Banshee and Embraced) are proposed covers for Evolve Two: Vampire Stories of the Future Undead, which will be out this fall.
Please post your answers to these two questions:
Which cover do you like the best, and why?
Which cover do you think is the best follow-up for the first anthology?
Cover #1: BANSHEE
Cover #2: EMBRACED
Remember to answer the two questions in the comments: Which cover do you like the best, and why? Which cover do you think is the best follow-up for the first anthology? (Please use cover # when commenting. Thx!)
And to encourage you to give your opinion, VampChix will draw a name on Sunday to win a copy of Nina Bangs' ETERNAL PREY! So leave comments through Saturday!
