I decided to keep the fish and the theme the same, since so many people gave positive feedback on how much they liked the fish contemplating whether or not to take the bait. Indeed, it was a good concept. At the same time, I made the original cover over four years ago when I was new to the DIY aspect of self-publishing. Now that I have some experience I went ahead and redesigned the cover so it would be a bit more stylish, a little more eye-catching, and hopefully generate a few extra sales.
Below is the original cover that I designed four years ago.
As you can see, I went with a darker color palette and distinguished the typography so that it didn't all blend together in an ugly block of text. I went with a more artistic representation of the coral, and dropped the coral wrap-around. Although I tried a variation with the coral wrap-around, it just seems more elegant to have it on the front and leave the back simple and clean. Finally, I put the Regolith Publications logo on the cover. And walla!
