The Machine - Which Cover Do You Like Best? A Poll

So I have a new book The Machine, Rise of the Gifted almost ready for publishing, but I have a dilemma, I don't know which cover to use. Hence I come to you, my friends, to ask your advice. The genre is SciFi/Gay Romance with telepaths and figure skaters - I kid you not :).


The Machine, Rise of the Gifted (Preliminary Blurb)

Rafe used to be a world class, British figure skater competing against his arch rival, flamboyant American Louis Hayes. A catastrophic knee injury ended his career and now all he can do is look on from the sidelines. He thinks he hates Louis and wants nothing more than to see his nemesis go down in a blaze of failure.

Then mysterious men in black with guns take over a press meet, trying to arrest Louis, awakening something dangerous in their target, and setting in motion events they cannot control. Most shocking of all, Rafe finds out Louis can literally read his mind.

Dragged into a murky world of government agents and x-files by one of those x-files, Rafe finds his world view completely changing. And, along the way, his hatred for Louis proves to be something else entirely.

Now Rafe just needs to survive so he can decide what to do about it.


I think I'm wavering towards Cover B at the moment, simply because I think it's easier to tell the figure is an ice skater, but the figure in Cover A is very attention grabbing, so I am not sure. Please tell me which one you prefer in the poll and feel free to comment and tell me why if you feel so inclined. Many thanks.
Cover A
Cover B

Which cover do you like best?


  1. If you have to choose, cover B please.
    But if you have time before publishing dates, to chat with me re: covers, may I offer suggestions?

    1. Sorry it has taken so long to reply - everything rather went to pot for a while there. I would love some suggestions. Thank you.
