New cover for "The doll that grew"

The good news is that my children's story, The Doll That Grew, is almost ready for release through Amazon. I just need to sort out a few pesky details, like choosing a cover, loading the title on Amazon and setting a launch date.

Meanwhile, I have 3 suggested covers to choose  from. The difference is in the text. Please vote for the cover you prefer in the comments section?

Option 1
 




















Option 2





















Option 3






















In more writing news: I was in Joburg again yesterday and have been selected to co-write a course (has to do with writing and publishing, so it's not a stretch). This is excellent news, as I need the security of steady work while I adapt to living part-time in a different province/town and caring for my mother. The only problem is that this commuting back and forth is very tiring ( and getting old fast). But there is no other option, so I'll just have to suck it up.

Spending the day reviewing another chapter of Book 7 and dealing with queries from the client publisher.

Hello D

Option 1

OR

Option 2 with the words all the same colour and size EXCEPT for GREW, which could be bigger and bolded to emphasise the GROWING part :)

I like the first option Damaria, I am so excited, yo definitely have a customer here!

Damaria Senne said...

@Theresa - thanks for your assistance.
@po- I'm also excited, but I am sooo scared! There are a lot of "what if readers hate it" scenarios running through my head. But I comfort myself with the thought that is it normal to be nervous.

Number 2, for sure.

And congratulations on your impending publication!

Damaria Senne said...
