The New Cover Dilemma

There reaches a point where it's time to refresh the covers of an existing book or series. I have a billionaire series that still sells well, and I was chatting earlier in the year about it since she was also thinking to make a change with her series.

While both our series are "clean" reads, both are too serious to count as romcoms (though they do have some funny parts). That ruled out the vector covers. I'm not really a fan of them anyway, so it didn't bother me.

There's a bit of a trend going with covers with flowers on the covers, both in general romance and in billionaire romances, so we decided to give it a try. That was earlier in the year. Since I was doing a promo on the series when my new covers came out, I couldn't tell it they made a difference, but my friend's series did get a bit of a boost. But nothing grand for either of us.

So, I decided to post the question to my newsletter peeps. Seventy-five percent of them preferred the covers with men rather than the floral ones. That made it easy. Except I still wanted to refresh them. 

Here's hoping these versions do the job. Now I'm off trying to figure out what the Zon has done to categories. The one constant is change, right?
