Help us choose the best cover design

Thanks for helping choose a cover concept for Risuko! Now we need you to choose your favorite design
A little while ago, we asked you which cover concept you thought we should send to our designer. Thanks so much for the great response! We went with the winner, and shared that, along with a lot of other information, with BookFly, who are putting the cover together for us.

They sent us a mock-up over the weekend, and we’d love to know whether you prefer the original concept or the new design!
Which of these two covers makes you want to read the book more?*
We know you may like both or neither — but go with your gut, and help us choose the best cover design!

Thanks for the wonderful response to Serenity, the prologue to David Kudler’s historical adventure novel Risuko!

Our next installment, “Chapter 1. The Left-Hand Path,” begins Risuko where she most loves to be — up in a tree, overlooking the castle of Lord Imagawa.

Before long, however, an old noblewoman forces her to the ground, and nothing will ever be the same.
