Here's the old version because I'm sure no one remembers what it looked like...
It wasn't bad, but compared to the awesome new version...
I love it so so much. Rhemalda Publishing has been so freakin' fantastic throughout this process. Today is one of those days (there are many) when I'm extremely grateful and happy that my first novel is being published by them. They really do treat me like family and go out of their way to make sure I'm in love with my book. (Not just pleased, but ecstatic and in love.)
I. Am. Grateful.

I LOVE the new lettering! It's beautiful. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, wow! The new version is even better! :)ReplyDelete
Holy Crap! You're right. I mean, seriously, the first one was already awesome, but it looks ever more awesomer now.ReplyDelete
I like both but I agree that the new lettering is much more enchanting! Such a gorgeous cover. You novel is going to be *swimming* off the shelves, Karen!ReplyDelete
You know I love this! Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Ooooooooooh--pretty. I like it so much better--and I didn't know that was possible!ReplyDelete
New font, FTW!! Love the new style. Quick q: Was Tangled Tides your original title, or did it change?ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your cover's new look, and have a great weekend!
Thanks, everyone! Glad you all like the new version too.ReplyDelete
Tere, Tangled Tides is the new and improved title. I'm ashamed to admit it used to be called... *cringes* A Motley Mermaid.
SO glad we changed it. :)
New lettering is perfect!!!ReplyDelete
SUCH an amazing cover. Seriously, I just love it!ReplyDelete
Something small like that makes a HUGE difference. Much better! :O)ReplyDelete
new font is better...I really like the whole look A LOT.ReplyDelete
I always quite liked The Sea Monster Memoires, I guess it was just a working title, but Tangled Tides is a BRILLIANT title. The new lettering looks beautiful.ReplyDelete
Oh, Thea! I'm sorry. The series title is still The Sea Monster Memoirs. Book 1 is Tangled Tides. :)ReplyDelete
No contest. The new cover is awesome. Lucky you!ReplyDelete
while the original was lovely the 'new improved version' is spectacular!ReplyDelete
Honestly, I like a combination of the two. The original version had more of a 3D look to it (which I enjoy), but the new font does look better. I'm just being uber-picky, you can't go wrong either way. It is a SHARP cover! :)ReplyDelete
eeeee! Coolest lettering ever.ReplyDelete
Love how they incorporated the mermaid tail into the title. Nice!ReplyDelete
Love the lettering. Love the cover! Beautiful.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! I really love the new font. :)ReplyDelete
Such kind words, Karen, thank you. I'm really happy you love your cover. :)ReplyDelete
I like the lettering of the new version--it has more strength, character.ReplyDelete
I LOVE IT!!! And I love that they have been so good to you!ReplyDelete
Happy bday to Sara!
What a beautiful cover! I can hardly wait to read this!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous!! And yes, I think the new lettering is even better! Squeeing for you!ReplyDelete
Yep! Cover #2 gets the win! :-)ReplyDelete
I love the change actually! Although DL Hammons had a good point, as far as how the first has a nice clean, 3-D look. Giving it dimension. I like that one as well. The second, has a sharpness about it. A glamorous, sparkly shine, with the illusion of water. Yanno! How some oceans water will sparkle at night while the moonlight hits it? Or the way some portray the sea foam shining, or shimmering (as the title design suggests). It pops more too. And love the font change, to accommodate the tail fins to be added to the title. Very artistic indeed! And love the mystical and magical feel the title speaks to the viewer! An appealing eye candy, SURE to catch any potential buyers attention from the start!ReplyDelete
Melissa, you've done wonderful work! Being an artist myself, I'd have done the same (not to say mine would be replicating your work by any means), in as how artists do take a step back from their work, and either see something is missing, or want to add, or take away something. Even spice things up a bit! You made a good call IMHO. Great work!
Karen, I cannot wait to read this series! When does the first book of this series come out? And congrats btw. I am very happy for you!
