Breaking Dawn, Alternate Cover

11 Aug

The cover as it came out:    

 

 

 

 

What I posted last week:    

 

Deltay asked where I got the alternate cover – So, for those of you curious, I wanted to post a side by side. If you click on it, it SHOULD bring you to the site (let me know if it doesn’t.) To be honest, I love the red trapped inside the crystal heart.

 

I believe the alternate cover is some type cover “fan fic” – there were tons of them out there. I was amazingly impressed by some of them. This one I felt captured the feel of the books as well as staying with the branding theme that they’ve used.  One thing that Little Brown (the publisher) has done that is amazing is BRAND these books. You know a Twilight Series book from 20 paces.  More houses need consider strong branding for their books like this.

 

ESPECIALLY for the younger generation – This generation was raised with over 5,000 media flashes A DAY (and that’s on a slow day) — they subconsciously recognize a strong brand when they see it.

 

Yeah, you have to write a FANTASTIC book (like I blogged about every single agent and editor saying last week) but a little help from the cover artists can go a long way!

    Oh, hey. I love the clear heart with the red inside, too. Swanky!

    But the new cover–the chess game–also fits. You have to read the story to find out why.
