Catalyst by Marc Johnson

What's the genre? What's the logline? What is it you like or don't like about this cover? Does it make you want to know more about the book? Does it make you want to BUY the book? Discuss.


  1. Glad to see a new cover to discuss. I like this one. I like the font, the graphic and the layout. I'm guessing fantasy, involving witchcraft. The cover alone wouldn't make me buy the book, but I would pick it up to read the description. If the blurb was good then I'd take it home.

  2. S.J., hurray, you're back :-)

    I can't tell whether this one is fiction or nonfiction, let alone the genre or subgenre. At most I can speculate that something hellish happens to a woman. I likely wouldn't pick it up.

    The font is lovely, though.

  3. (From Eric) -
    Welcome Back S.J.

    I would guess that the book is about witchcraft/ modern/fantasy.

    While the image and graphics are fine, it's lacking something that would make me want to read the blub or pick up the book.

  4. Welcome back!

    And i'm with Eric. This one seems to lack a certain je ne sais quoi. Literally. I can't quite put my finger on what it's missing. The image and font are fine, but it just seems to be missing that final polish.
