I Need Your Help

As you may or may not know, I'm getting close to publishing my first book. I'm hoping to have it out before Easter.

This is where you come in. I am trying to decide between two cover designs, and I would love your opinion.

Below there are two options, each one with a full spread and just the front cover. I want to know what you think. Which should I use?

Don't you love the artwork? It's an oil painting by Al Young that I discovered when I released "Blood in the Sheets." Check it out for a sample of what's in the book. And while you're at it check out Al Young Studio's web site and his collection of oil paintings called Women of the Bible.

By the way, my son Christopher designed these options. He's an art director for a New York City ad agency. Thanks Chris.

Option one

Encouters Cover 1

Option two

Thanks so much for telling me what you really think.

Walk in the light.

    I really, really like the first one. It draws you in much more than the second one which feels colder and sterile;textbookish. Just my opinion. Blessing and favor all over this book Ben-Gayle

      Hi Gayle, Great point - thanks for stopping in and I'm sitting with my hands out receiving the blessing and favor your sending my way.
      God's best to you and yours.

    Hey Ben! I would choose Option 2, IF there are enough text or additional graphics to fill in the back cover. Otherwise choose Option 1.
