  1. Thanks very much for such constructive comments, especially the critical ones. Those give me a lot of good angles to consider, most of which I hadn’t thought of before. I’m glad to her what you liked, too!

    Also, I see on mmjaye’s site that I won the Week 2 drawing. Wow, that’s great! I haven’t gotten an email about it though, and with the Friday deadline mentioned for responding, I don’t want to seem uninterested. If there’s anyone reading this who’s involved with that, please let me know how to get in touch. Thanks again.

  2. I love the cover and the title is very catchy and original. Who would have thought to write a book like this? I would definitely be interested in reading more and getting copies for my friends and family with children.
    I agree with you, Quanie. The hand seems a bit out of place. I like the hat flying off the goose’s head. Other than that, it seems like a fantastic start!

  3. Overall, it’s an eye-catching cover. You could make the title a little more playful as you did the Os in goose. I would recommend experimenting with another font. You could even change the colors. I wonder if you need that gradient in the background of the goose. It’s not serving a purpose other than filling space. Your subtitle is about song parodies. You’d do better to put musical scores being the goose rather than the gradient. There should be an element that speak rhythm and playful. As is, the design in stagnant

  4. This cover is adorable. I love the purple and green hat flying above the title. I think the bright colors work well together (I like that the title is the same color as the goose’s beak and feet). I also think that the way the word “Goosing” appears really works because it’s so playful. The only thing that seemed out of place to me was the hand pushing/pointing at the goose. Other than that, definitely an eye-catching cover.

  5. This is a cute cover reminiscent of children’s books–although I know it’s for adults, I agree with the route you went making it cartoon-like.

    The first thing I thought when looking at it was that the goose was a little big. You’ve got a blob of white space right in the middle that draws the eye. I don’t know if you drew it or you have access to the illustrator who did it, but you might want to put your goose on a diet. Then in contrast, maybe beef up your title a little bit, so that it’s balanced between the two.

    Otherwise, I like the overall idea. You kept it simple and the title and sub-title are descriptive.
