My husband (@got_angst) recently worked with an artist he found on DeviantArt to create a new cover for his first fantasy-adventure book, Angst. We love how it turned out!
Don't tell my husband, but I love the little bald spot on the main character on the cover. Also, even though I read the book several times while editing it, I never envisioned the sword (aka "Chryslaenor") that big, so this new cover helped me imagine it correctly.
In case you hadn't heard of Angst before now, you're in for a treat. :) Angst is the story of a "mid-life crisis during medieval times". Be sure to read my completely unbiased review of it for the full scoop. Then whisk yourself over to Amazon to pick up a copy: Angst by David Pedersen at Amazon.
What do you think? And what are some of your favorite book covers? How much does the cover influence whether you buy the book?
