Jeff Bacot is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And he wants your help with the book cover.
A beautiful day for a beautiful game. Just a game of golf to flee the flames of life, to forge a friendship, find some meaning, feel redemption, follow dreams. It was just golf course talk between two guys at first, a series of dude discussions over drinks during the game, but conversations that would reveal long held secrets and forever define who they were, where they came from, what they stood for, why they existed and then spiral into a final perilous confrontation that would reveal the dark foe and frightening underbelly playing on the golf course all around them, near them, next to them, and on the hole, within them.
Please take a look at two possible covers below then vote on the choice you recommend for Jeff:

I prefer the first cover because the character is enjoying the game with a friend. It is friendlier, as if this friend could be the reader, along for the action and adventure described in the blurb. Best of luck with the book.
you’re book cost too much…
The second cover compels that “defining moment” that is described in the back cover description of the book. It also show only one man, which also ties in nicely with Mr Bacot’s bio.
I like the colors and the tie to the title provided by Option B.
In the first option he looks like he is enjoying the game with his friend, who is looking on. I also like the flow of the colors.
The first option has a sense of action, of pulling you into the game. The second is too static, not including the viewer/reader into the game.
The second cover with the impression of the best seller story.
Every golfer can feel the second cover. It speaks to the audiance. You can see the hole you are putting it in.
