Rate your Book Cover

This is a great new resource for indie authors for figuring out how well your covers score with readers, Sadly, it looks as if I too will have to redo the cover I uploaded there for Chameleon in a Mirror, if the votes are any indication. 😦

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksI’m currently finishing my second collection of short stories. In fact, once I’m done editing the last story, the book will be ready!

However, I still need to design a book cover. Lorelei Logsdon recently informed me of this great website the other day, and I now consider it one of the the best resources of its kind.

Called Rate Book Cover, it allows authors to test possible book covers for reader feedback. Basically, you upload your book cover and that’s it. Visitors will rate it using one to five stars, and that will allow you to know instantly if a cover has traction with readers or not.

That’s not all, though! You can also browse the site to see what kind of covers people like. It’s like an instant trend-o-meter!

All this is available for free. There are two paid options: for a daily fee of 99c

  1. Thank you for the share! I’m sorry Chameleon in a Mirror didn’t score too high. I’ve started redoing my covers, too. The previous ones had scores between 3 and 3.5. The new ones have 4.3. At least I know the redesign worked 😀
