Beverly Kinzie is publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And she wants your help with the book cover.
The story of Andrew and Jeannie was told to Audrey (Bainum) Kinzie and her siblings for years. As they matured and reached late mid-life, they wanted the story of their parents written down to preserve the everyday history of the pioneers that so many are forgetting. Audrey, already into her sixties by the time she started to write the story, worked on it until her death in 1982. The writing was filed away until years later when her daughter-in-law, Beverly Kinzie, picked it up and re-read it again. At the time she was working on another book, Early Woods County. Upon its completion, she once again picked up Audrey’s story to edit and submit for publication.
Author Beverly Kinzie has spent most of her life in Alva, Oklahoma. Beverly attended Oklahoma City University and Northwestern Oklahoma State University. She worked with husband Wayne in their international aviation business for forty-four years. A wife of fifty years and mother of four and grandmother of eight, the author discovered her ability to write and edit late in life.

I vote for B – the light brown/tan seems to fit more with the title.
I like option A. It seemed to catch the eye quicker.
Ooops, I meant to vote for Cover B, I don’t know why I hit “A”. Sorry. I don’t usually care for brown tones but it looks good with the photo. One thing I would suggest is to put a border of some sort around the photo so it will stand out more. I would say just a few pixels wide. Maybe in a very very dark brown.
I like cover B for its consistency of color tone.
