Secret Cover Page

The first image is the first book’s cover. The second image–girl in black sitting and holding the knife–is what I plan to have as the third book’s cover, although it could change. But I like the progression from laid back, everything is okay Kennedy to the you-unleashed-my-inner-demon-now-you’re-going-to-pay Kennedy. (the title of the second book is Bound by Bloodsong, the third is Fused in Earth and Stone, so titles will be changed whenever I make a decision)


My problem is the second book. I really want her holding the treaty/scroll, but mostly, I and others see a loaf of bread or a stick/stake/lumber of some sort in the covers where the artist attempted the scroll thing.

So I mainly need input on the second book. It’s okay if none of these work, but if you have suggestions, please let me know. And if you can tell me why you like or dislike one cover over another, let me know that too. I’m leaning toward one or two of these covers, but haven’t made a decision yet. I need more input! 🙂
