Author Poll: John Sparks wants your help with his cover

05 Apr

John Sparks is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And he wants your help deciding his book cover.

Book Summary

To: Authorized Personnel Only
Location: National Aeronautics Research Consortium (N.A.R.C.) Labs
From: Doctor Robert J. Guttenberg, N.A.R.C. Director
Attention, all personnel: Your help is desperately needed in relaying this message to anyone who will listen. One week ago, N.A.R.C. Labs received an unearthly signal, emanating from the far side of the moon. The renowned Harvard graduate Dr. Sing Ann Howell can barely hold our computer together. Effective immediately, by Presidential Order, a 24-hour work rotation is in effect. Project Blue Star, America’s nuclear rocket, is being pulled from its ashes. Pilot training will be provided by Captain Tom Dangerfield in an effort to beat the Soviet response. Time is of the essence. We cannot allow ourselves to lose the race for this unearthly mystery…
Addendum: Over eleven hours ago, Tom Dangerfield and I encountered a woman of distinction who claims to be Anna Urisa, Captain of the Guild scout ship from the planet Arseina, broadcasting the distress signal that we are now receiving. The validity of her story is unknown…our traditional beliefs and ideas may be the defining elements, limiting our ability to see the truth. I encourage everyone to see past our earthly limitations, as they may be our undoing…

    I thought the exact same thing as George Clever. Yellow is caution.

    I like the yellow lettering as the red sends a very different message. Yellow is …..CAUTION!

    Cover A would be my preference. Seems easier to read the title in red and Cover A title doesn’t cover up as much of the rocket as Cover B.
