MAMA’S MADNESS – Revisited




BookCoverImage

To further prove my ineptness in marketing my books of Mystery, Suspense, Romance, et al, I offer this post – AND SEEK YOUR HELP!

I’ve revised some passive voice sections in the narrative of “Mama’s Madness” and replaced them with more active voice, not that passive is always bad. It’s that I fear I’ve used it too much in my books, a habit I fell into early on in my writing. Along with the passive voice changes, I also did some rewriting, further editing, and changing book covers – AGAIN! Not a ‘horn toot’ here, the book in its present form received some sixty reviews, many of which were five-stars. So, sure, I could be making a mistake with the change. But, hey, life is all about change. I simply believe MM should be in the ‘best seller’ rank, despite its ‘goshy-durn’ adult content that was inspired by a Northern Californis criminal case… That case made me angry, aggrieved, weep-emotional. I mean, this ‘Mama’ was from the fiery pits of Hell!

SO, as for SEEKING YOUR HELP, take a look at the cover that starts this post and give me your uninhibited yea or nay regarding liking it or not liking it! Sure will be appreciated! To help confuse the issue, I’m showing you the two previous covers I’ve used for MM before… Here they are:

Label the TOP one ‘A’ and the two here ‘B’ & ‘C’. 

As a good author-friend (Vashti Quiroz Vega) over at RRBC/RWISA would say: “If you comment, you’ll make me smile!”

I can’t figure out how to get WordPress to move my ‘Comment Section’ above the dark box on my Blogsite…please scroll down til you find it! 

Hope you have time to read “Mama’s Madness” at some point, a thriller even though there is pure Evil in the content – inspired by true events!

Oh, PLEASE LOOK for the NEW edition of “Mama’s Madness” on Amazon and other ‘BUY’ sites later on this month… MAYBE, you wouldn’t mind helping me get the word out!

THANKS SO MUCH!

  1. Honestly, I like Book Cover C the best of all the choices given. I can only offer my personal opinion, so take it with a grain of salt. Book Cover A as shown denotes a sense of the supernatural, something wicked and dark beyond psychological. Book B, for me anyway, seems like it wants to portray something that isn’t there within the story. Book C, the one I chose, seems to hit the nail on the head, so to speak. It shows a happy family speckled with drops of blood which pulls you in, and the brick wall in the background hints at the torture the family endured or being held captive as if there was no escape or someone is trapped.

    Sorry, I couldn’t be of more assistance, but just wanted to throw my opinion out there. Best of luck in whichever one you choose and I look forward to reading it! 😀

    1. Hi, Nia, my laptop has been on the ‘fritz’ and don’t know if I responded to your comment or not… But, thanks so much for taking the time. Like your choice. With the computer problem, I’ve been up and down. My best wishes. ♥

  2. I tend toward the more subtle covers, Billy Ray. There may be blood, death, and stabbings in the book, but I don’t want to see them on the cover. Given that, my vote is for “A,” only I can’t really make out what is on the woman’s face. It almost looks like Chinese characters at first, but I don’t think it is.

  3. Ah, sweet lady Eden, thank you for taking the time to respond… Actually, the one you like is now on Amazon. I went from the ‘dark-knife behind the back’ to ‘blood drops’. Since I did some editing & rewriting, My thinking was just to come out with a NEW book. Thanks for the input. Luvya! xo ♥
