Instead, Rogue Legacy has never been successful in finding READERS in the first place and has sold far fewer copies than any of my other novels. It's a shame that more people haven't discovered this fun, heart-warming fantasy adventure.
In hopes of rectifying the situation, I sought out a new cover design that was more suitable to the story found within. This new cover coincides with a relaunch as I hope to get the book into more reader's hands and Lyra into their hearts. Yes, a cover DOES significantly impact a book's success and I hope this new one will grab the attention of readers and draw them in as so many other wonderful books do. Along with the cover, I have a new tagline that conveys to readers what the story entails:
"A fantasy retelling akin to The Princess Bride, but in this one, the girl saves herself."
The old and new covers are posted below for comparison. What do you think? Do you like the new cover? Does it make you want to know a bit more about the story? Feel free to email me with feedback at JeffreyLKohanek@gmail.com
