I am currently converting my historical romance novel "Ann Angel's Freedom" into eBook format. The cover I used for the print books will not do since it doesn't look good enough as thumbnail. Now I made two tile-dummies to see which one I should take. I realized that many historical covers have people on it (although less dressed than on mine). On the other hand, with the first cover, the title is much more visible. What would you say?
Here are the dummies:
Tell me your opinion. If you think I should try something totally different, I'll listen to suggestions. Here are some more information about this story:
Based on facts, the novel tells the story of Ann Angel Waldmann whose father decides to accept their Counts offer to buy their freedom. It is set in the rural area around Osnabrueck at the turn of the 18th century, a time when old values are questioned. In spite of new ideas, individual freedom is a frightening dream for most people. It is a time of change, where Ann Angel Waldmann, daughter of a rich farmer, has to cope with the obstacles life puts in her way. Distracted, she overlooks her growing attraction to the reeve who is in charge of investigating unsettling events in her home.
I really need your help.
