Oh, and I rejected the first group sent to me, everything was red, author's name was bloody. I'm not writing horror here. This is a cozy murder mystery. Even though the murder(s) themselves take place off page--and it is pretty bloody what happened--there are a few harrowing things that happen to Lainey, my MC. But this is a mystery, and quite tame. My aim is to find readers who want something that doesn't give them nightmares, or make them run screaming, or want to burn the book.
So, I requested a little less blood this time around. See what you think. There's not much difference, but the slightest in the author's name, except for #4, where the title is gray. Any input is welcome. I'm having trouble with decision on these.
