Title Change for Sacrifice Series Book 2

I have decided to change The Choice to Deadly Luxury. The reason for this decision is that the original title was too generic. The new title is not only more unique, it depicts the story line very well. Also I changed the mock cover to better suit what the novella is about.

Original Mock Cover




New Mock Cover



So? What do you think?

And here's the summary to better show the extent the change helps. You can also click here for a full list and to read on some changes including the addition of the fifth novella (mock cover only).

Summary: Jessica Hatfield lives a life of decadence  She gets up everyday to be pampered and cared for. At age fifteen she will be sacrificed. She wants to but what of those who don't?

Joseph Rowe doesn't believe in The Giving. A ceremony in which every year two teens are sacrificed after living fifteen years of luxury. Refusal means banishment to the wastelands and no return to Chance City. Can he really go against what he was raised to do? To believe?

Thank you for dropping by and see you on Saturday.

  10. I like Deadly Luxury much better. Much more intriguing. Might I suggest on the real cover, you make that title bigger? Love the title and it needs to pop out.

  11. The title is better and the simple cover design works well. Elizabeth is right, and both the title and your name should pop out.

  15. I like both the new cover and title. I'm thinking of renaming the novel I'm revising too. Right after I named it Meg Cabot came out with a book in the same genre with the same name... Original is good!
    The blurb makes me want to read it right now :)

  18. I like the concept and the pic, and the plot is intriguing. The backdrop could be a different color, and the font could be different and larger. The new name is definitely better. :) Writer’s Mark

  19. I think you made an excellent decision in changing the title of your book. I do think your new mock cover could use a better font as noted by our good friend, Michael.

    A peaceful remainder of the weekend to you.

    Gary, yes that one! :)
