Unfortunately, I can't sit around waiting for a model to reply. Ah, the trials and tribulations of going the cheap route. But it still doesn't make sense to purchase stock for my first book. I know they've read my message, because my sent folder tells me so, but for whatever reason they are not responding quick enough.
So I will be going through my other stock images and creating more mock-ups. Just quick framework to see if I can use the image. I'll throw out the fishing line to those models/photographers if I end up with an image I like and will see what they say. It's a shame, because I was really hoping that I could get my hands on that one photo.
But at least I'm making effort--I was browsing through recent Kindle uploads and noticed a lot of people use the kindle cover maker (ick), or don't even have an image.
What gets you to click on on a book, or pick it up on the shelf?
If you had to choose between one of the books below, which one would it be?
I rest my case.
