Cover Art and Other Considerations
Soulless is a difficult book to decorate. What with comedic, alternate history, paranormal, romance, and steampunk elements it's hitting a lot of different markers so it can't be easy to choose the cover. This is what they came up with...
I'm not going to say what I think, but it has garnered some interesting reactions from those around me. I have a large, variable and amoeba-like group of friends and the one thing they never lack, Gentle Reader, is a point of view. The general feeling is in favor of the image and the background and against the pink with a topping of rabid hatred for the jarring font/title style. Although one counterargument is that the modern, out of time, feel the text gave to the cover was compelling.
I found myself feeling a little pulp over the text myself and one of my betas claimed it felt a bit teen/R.L. Stine.
Always looking on the bright side, at least it's not this...
