Help me pick a new #bookcover

I’m still working on a new cover for IT LIVES IN THE BASEMENT.  I liked one my friend made, but I felt it needed tweaked.  After some suggestions from Facebook, here are my new ones.  Please let me know which one grabs your attention.  I’m also open to any suggestions.  Just bare in mind, I’m only a novice with my Paint.net program.  So, don’t be giving me any techie ideas.  They’ll go right over my head.  Smile 

Here is the one my friend. made.  Someone said that the white font makes the cover look cold and icy, which is fine, but it’s not all of the story.  Also, the author name shouldn’t be in the same font and color:

Another person said red gives the feel of blood and danger, which is more in line with my story.

After I did the above, I liked the color for my name, so played around with that color scheme for the title.

My last cover, I combined the icy cold from the white font, with the blood/danger from the red font.  I also found another font for my name that I really like.

So, what do you think? 

You can see my old cover for this horror book on my sidebar.  I liked it, but at that time, I still hadn’t figured out how to use Paint.net.  It was suggested I use a more mature theme for my cover, as the old one kinda depicts YA.  I don’t see it, but hey, I’m blind to it. 

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
