Default Your chance to help!

To All,

Please take minute and vote on the best book cover for Better Language Teaching. You have the chance to help with this important aspect - after all, people to some extent make initial judgements of a book by its cover!

Better Language Teaching | Heads Up English | ESL Lessons

Thank you so much!

I judged your book by its cover

The blue is by far the better of the two, imo. The white is colorful but from the preview, the words are blurred and hard to read. They also look jammed into the center.

The blue has better balance and looks a little more professional. The title is also more apparent.

Anyway, great job! When is the book due out?

Thanks Mark.

I'm trying desperately to get it out on August 31st. Lots of last minute issues are slowing things up, but I should be able to do it. I've put in about 20+ hours per week since May, plus time in the spring too. I'll be very, very happy to get this done for now.

BTW: Did you get my email last week?

Book covers definitely impact sales. It's worth spending the time picking one that works for you - and your target audience.

Alas, my eye is less than ideal and I don't trust my own instinct. Good luck with your book and cover!
