This is a cover in progress for the next thriller that I'm looking at self-publishing. There Are No Angels was written directly before K.A.R.M.A. What does everyone think of the jacket cover and the synopsis of the story on the back cover? Does it make you want to read it?

I still want to read it, though. You had me at "the stripper circuit of small town America."

Thanks, Benjamin. Yeah, the back should be punchier

I'd condense the description on the back. Throw in some more review tidbits.

Kudos on the spine art. That is not easy to pull off.

Thanks, Jonathan. I've gone back and forth on the cover myself as the image is so subtle.

Synopsis is pretty good. It's effective and engaging. I'm swinging back and forth on the cover. On one hand, it feels a bit plain, but on the other, there is an undeniable effectiveness to it. Overall, it looks pretty good. At the very least, if I saw it on a bookshelf in the store, I'd pick it up and take a few quick skims.
