Cover Poll

So I’ve reached an impasse regarding the book cover for my latest novel, Compile:Quest. Some feedback I received remarked that it was a bit too ‘old-school’ or more ‘fantasy’ than science-fiction. Also, that it didn’t fully convey the dark, gritty nature of the novel, and made it look too ‘Y/A’.

Okay, enough quotation marks. I decided to create a new cover, and let everyone I know (and even those I don’t) put it to a vote. If you haven’t read the book then you can still vote based on which cover intrigues you and might make you click on it when browsing online.

Let me know what you think!

In the year 2036, solar storms batter Earth crippling electrical infrastructures across the globe. Night falls and the ensuing pandemonium claims millions of lives, catapulting the world into chaos. In the midst of this global turmoil a hero emerges.

Read the first few chapters of this book now!

The altruistic SUN Council intercedes, constructing enormous domes on each continent to protect the world’s population from the radioactive CME’s of the incessant solar storms.

But not everyone makes it to the domes. In an attempt to survive the deadly radiation, hundreds of thousands of people dig into the earth, living in squalor under an oppressive military dictatorship.

Now centuries later, the final stage of the SUN Council’s plan to decimate the world’s population approaches. But as victory glimmers on the horizon, two women from discordant halves of this new world start to unravel the conspiracy.

Compile:Quest is the first book in the science-fiction trilogy “The Corrupted SUN Script”.

Here are the two covers. Leave a comment and let me know what you think?
