Recently Teen Fire, an Sourcebooks online community, send out an email to it's members about helping out to pick a cover for Water Wars. I think this is a great idea! It includes all of us, out voices are going to be heard in a cover selection.
Think about it, if your choice cover gets picked any time you see it on the shelves of Borders or Barnes and Noble or anywhere where they sell it you will think, yeap, I helped pick that bad boy.
Here is the original message:
"So, we need serious help picking out a cover! Here at Sourcebooks it's turned into the Water Wars cover wars, so we need some unbiased feedback!
To vote, simply go to the "Help Us Pick the New Water Wars Cover" page and three random participants will win advanced copies of this Jan. 2011 book!
We'd love to have as much feedback as possible, so if you reach out to your twitter followers for their opinions, please use the #H20Wars hashtag (you can also use this shortened URL http://bit.ly/ckmwEM).
I think I explained myself pretty well, so without further ado, here are the covers:
There are a lot of choices, so choose wisely.
I think the ones with the most presence are numbers 1 and 2. The first one is good because it can be chosen by either girl or boy but still is a good eye catching cover (my boyfriend saw the covers and automatically said the first one, see my point? xD).
The second one though is amazing. The model, the drops of water, the water that forms a kind of mask in the person's face... But then again this one is most likely going to be picked by a girl reader, I say most likely because well, you never know. I also like the font on the second one, but maybe put the wars on the bottom of water? Because it messes with your eyes a bit, and some people may not like that. But I think the font can work either way.
#'s 4, 6 and 7 are good too, but #'s 3 and 5, for me, are just boring, covers I wouldn't pick in a hundred years.
