These two weeks -- hectic.
Firstly because I'm an aunt to a second lass. Meet Olive's sister, Taylor!
Secondly, I've been busy planning, sketching, throwing away sketches and coming up with a new one, painting and researching on ... a new cover for my Little Orchid story. (Story remains unchanged, just the skin.) The original one was okay, but I thought the fonts could be improved, as well as the main subject, which currently features a strange creature not many are familiar with.
So I came up with a new cover art and now I need your help!
The issues I have to iron out are:
1) Font colours
2) Tagline (the line at the top of the cover which reflects and sells the story)
Which do you prefer? Which combination would make you want to check out the story? If you have a minute, could you help me by filling out the survey below?
*Little Orchid's Sea Monster Trouble is about a little girl who is forced to take up the role of a sea monster. It's about feeling small and being big, about seeking trust in mother-child relationships, and about growing brave in the face of physical and emotional hurricanes. #multicultural #historical #fantasy #adventure
Thank you so much for your time and opinion! I truly appreciate this. If you have other feedback (e.g. the cover is too dark, the balance could be better, or the original cover is nicer ...), please feel free to leave it in the comments. Hugs and kisses everywhere!
*Oh by the way, I know some readers are waiting for the print version of Little Orchid. I really want you to read this story, so I'll be working on it and hopefully can get it ready by the end of the year or by next year. It will happen. I shall make this happen. :)

Really enjoyed the honest voice of this narrator ~ a teenager let down by his mother and the foster care system, and almost-picked up through his involvement with a gang.
