Here is the chandelier cover referenced in the comments to the last post:
I like it okay, but to me it hardly has any more relevance to the story than the cup of blood:
Here is a YELLOW cover that mainly strikes me as YELLOW. It does not seem the least bit connected to the story. Sure, there’s a girl, but she could be anybody. Mostly it is just YELLOW.
Here is a haunted house that is related to the opening scene, but does not actually suit the story any better than the others:
Here is a remarkably monochrome cover:
Here is the one I think best expresses the story, though still it completely ignores the bakery and feeding-people-you-love aspects:
A variation on that theme:
I don’t know what scene I would choose to illustrate for the perfect Sunshine cover. I don’t really agree with all these cover artists that the book is truly horror — I think I would call it dark fantasy — so the haunted house covers and especially the cup of blood don’t fit. How would you combine baking with vampires? Tricky, which is I suppose why no one has yet attempted that combination.
Anyway, which cover do you like best as a cover for a horror novel, not necessarily Sunshine? And which do you think actually fits Sunshine, if any?
