One consistent piece of feedback I've received about Touchstone is that the covers of the individual books appear to be targetted to middle grade rather than young adult readers. Since I really love those covers (which are tremendously appropriate to the content), I stuck with them for quite some time, but have started an experiment today to see whether the more 'floaty girl' type of cover will help sales.
These are the covers which will go up in the next day or so:
The "Caszandra" cover is a little dark in thumbnail , but I think the progression of the three covers is rather cool.
May make no difference at all, of course, but at least people will stop saying it looks middle grade.
[Will be keeping the paperbacks the way they are though.]
