Help me pick a cover for my book from these 5 options.

This whole book-writing thing is getting realer every day. I am close to publishing my first book called What Does Your Fortune Cookie Say? with Ripples Media. And I am learning a lot in the process. It turns out that you can’t just throw 200 pieces of paper on a shelf and call it a book. To be ‘official’ you have to put a cover on it and bind the pages together. Rules…

So rather than try to disrupt the entire book publishing industry with an innovative loose-leaf style book, I have decided to cave in and create a cover for my book. Boring, I know. But you have to pick your battles.

Here are 5 book covers I am considering. Now, I’d love to have your help. Take a look and respond in the comments section with the book cover you prefer. You could either describe your favorite option in great detail, or simply use the letter that goes with the cover design. Your choice.

The Options:

A

A

B

B

C

C

D

D

E

E

Here they are at a glance.

What do you like?

Please share your favorite in the comments section. If your favorite cover gets chosen there is a big high five coming your way the next time I see you.

  2. C because it’s the only one where the cookie’s tongue isn’t hanging out like it’s a thirsty dog leaving the dog park.
    But A because I like the emphasis on “your” and the print is bigger and easier for old people to read.
    On the other hand, I don’t know how many old people care what their fortune cookie says so that might not be your target. 😂😂😂
    Wanna know more?

  3. Does A come with a box of Cheez-It’s? :). All look very cool, nice job to the designers! My eye’s go with D, the yellow cover – clean, nice soft flow top to bottom and sub-head, which pays off the title and reason for being, is a clear read quickly. Thanks for letting me play “client guy” Adam. Congrats on the book!

  4. I’m changing my answer. C is still the best because there’s no tongue hanging out but I meant to say B because of the big letters, not A. See what I mean about old people? I can’t even do this right and remember my choice from seeing to saying! 🙄

  5. I would say B because I like how the fortune cookie is the C in cookie, and that the words in on the cover are bigger and will be easier to read when you find it in a store.

  6. Adam, I like design ‘A’ because the title font is all the same size and it’s the cleanest to my eye. ‘A’ is also an awesome letter…Adam, Albrecht, Andy, etc. Good luck!

  7. A. I especially appreciate the font for your name there. I think the oversized look of B is trendy and not timeless. I would like to add that the look of the spine is very important to me as well, but maybe that is just a weird personal thing.

  8. D, the bold FORTUNE catches the eye and makes me want to read it. I like color contrast vs the red books. If I was walking by a book stand with all these covers on display, again the title pops more on D. A is kind of a second option, the cookie looks more like cheese to me….was it all the time in Wisco?!
