Book Cover Research for Top 10 Teen & Young Adult Fantasy & Supernatural Mystery eBooks

The latest episode in the Li & Lu series is coming out any moment now. Ooh, need a cover.

Here’s what winning at the top of the Teen & Young Adult Fantasy & Supernatural Mystery eBooks. Let’s have a look. I’ll summarize at the end.

1. The Gender Game

2. Feared By Hell: An Urban Fantasy Action Adventure

3. The Gender Game 2: The Gender Secret

4. The Gender Game 3: The Gender Lie

5. The Gender Game 4: The Gender War

6. The Shadow Children: A Paranormal Fantasy

7. Death Becomes Her

8. The Falconer: Book One of the Falconer Trilogy

9. The Secret Heir: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance

10. The Lost Savior: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance


Whew! What a collection. So let’s see, looks like:

  1. Strong, clear, (usually) large close-up image of main character(s).
  2. Blues and greens!
  3. Title easily readable on the thumbnail.
  4. Mostly females on the cover.
  5. Dual scene: close-up shot (usually of character) with faded/blurred background of setting/location.
  6. Contrasts of light and dark colors.
  7. Many seem to have a logo/branding/symbol of some kind. Or at least an “item” (weapon, sword, etc.).
  8. 9 of 10 in Kindle Unlimited (not a cover comment, but yeah, interesting!).
  9. Most (all?) part of a series.
  10. No one is smiling. 😉

Whew. OK, there we have it. I need a new cover. I’m going to make this first draft myself. Yeah, so here we go. Based on this, we’ll see how far I get … this afternoon when I upload it.

I know, I know, I really shouldn’t be doing this.

I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
