Bred by Jenna McCormick

What's the genre? 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. Not sure of the genre. Post apocalyptic?

    I have some issues with this cover. For one thing nothing is very sharp or in focus. The fog look blurs everything up. Another problem is that the cover is two busy. We have lovers in a forest, green aliens (?) in the corner and the ruins in the other corner. I would suggest lose one of these four things.

    The small white text at the top is also totally. unreadable.

  2. While I like the overall tone of the cover and very much like the image of the two lovers (RARE for me) I can't make out some of the images and if I can't at this size, at thumbnail it would be really impossible. I can't read the logline either--at all.

    Not sure what this is. Paranormal? Post-apocalyptic? I'd say this has the makings of a good cover but needs some work.

  3. I mostly agree. I like the lovers, like the overall tone. I really just have two suggestions; drop the small text at the top or if you do retain it, get it out of her hair; it's totally unnecessary for it to be there. But or ebook, I'd drop it.

    I never figured out what the splotchy green things in the bottom left corner were. I like the bright bit of color, but I'd be tempted to just abstract them enough that they look more like bokeh, or drop them.

  4. Romance, obviously, female main character. The text at the top is far too small for my old eyes.

    Not a genre I would read.
