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!
