Your favourite cover

There is another thread talking about how much we pay for covers. I just wondered which is your favourite of all your own covers? Although I like most of my covers, I think this is my favourite (and no, I am not saying how much it cost).

I like how this one (book 3) came out in the end. I have to admit though, that I'm rethinking it from "science fiction" to "cozy", so there's that and it will change the fonts and etc.



This is the first book with a new concept that I might adopt for book 2 and 3, if I decide to go "cozy".



Either way, I like how they came out. Not to say they can't be improved, of course.

It's a tie between Mars and Venus.

There's always contention between Mars and Venus, it seems.

I'd pick Hero in the Darkness, probably because SciFi isn't something I read and there is a guy on the cover. I think I prefer people on the covers.

Edit - sorry, for some reason I only saw Tim's post and I thought he was asking which of those covers was our favorite. Tim, you can delete this if you want.

The cover to my next Nightmare book. I'm actually still working on this one.

I will not forget one line of this, not one day. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

That's why I went to Titan.


I've actually been thinking about going to Titan myself.  I've been mulling over a possible Saturn trilogy.

Mine aren't very elaborate, but I like this one.
     

Traditional mysteries with a dash of humor -- no cats, no cupcakes.

I can't make up my mind between these two. I like the first one with the motif of the alamo in the background with the layering of the Marines marching in the foreground. It's hard to get an affordable cover that actually conceptualizes a key scene in the story. And I thought my cover artist nailed it on this one.

The second was taken from a public domain picture from 1851 by Adolphe Jean-Baptiste Bayot. The cover artist touched up the uniforms and creatively added a Texas flag to the cover.
