Anna Kippling is Getting Revamped! Enter the Contest and Give Your Vote...

You might have noticed I haven't been posting much lately about anything concerning my books. Not on Facebook. Not on twitter. Not even on here. Yep, that's right. No promoting, no linking, no giveaways, no nothing.

So what have you been up to A.D.?

Well, It goes like this...

After finishing the fourth installment to my Anna Kippling Series (that in itself was a huge feat for me, she pats self on the back) I decided I just had to go back and revamp up the previous three books.  As an indie author, I have learned quite a bit since I entered the self-pub industry and have learned the hard way on how little I knew when I entered it. And sadly how much more I still need to learn.

The  #1 most important thing I have learned, for anyone to learn even,  is you want your work to be at it's absolute best or at least pretty darn close before you press the publish button. It isn't just about finishing the story, but of course that is something to feel proud about. It's quite an accomplishment to write and finish a book (now pat yourself on the back), but it doesn't end there. You then need to edit.

Edit, revamping, everything and anything to make that book of yours shine to a luster that would make any mom or pop proud. This after all is your baby.
And over the past two years this is just what I have done.

I've also had to build a tougher skin. No one likes negative reviews, but they are necessary (at least the legit ones).  This is how our readers give us feedback and our resource to improvement. So with a new layer of skin atop the other, I listened and...

worked harder,  worked a little harder, kept going,- I think I threw a tantrum here -   keep on still  and...
Yep, I'm still going.


Back to the point. As I've established, there is always room for improvement.

I am very proud of this series and have a deep love for the characters within it (hey they're like family to me) and so it wouldn't be unfathomable to want their story to be at it's very best. So I've done one final revamp and then I shall lets it alone :0)

I did a while ago post a possible new cover for the series and am still on the fence about it.  I'm not sure if I should do a new cover or keep the current one.  This is where you come in.
As readers are just as important to authors as their characters. YOU, yes you, are very important to me and of course so is your opinion. So give me your opinion. Which cover do you think I should go with when I am put out my second edition (revamped) Anna Kippling Series?

Cover 1 or Cover 2?
