Cover rough critique! How do you feel about the colours?
I liked the green text, but that's just me Looking really nice.
It's still a possibility! It just reminds me too much of mint chocolate chip ice cream

@Braden-Hallett I was just writing...
“I really like the colours and dark foreground of this. From a graphic design perspective I also Iiked the title in green to help with the hierarchy of the text and help the title stand out when on a shelf (the accent colour green could tie the eyes/head circuit chip and title together if that makes sense).”
...but you have just done it before I pressed submit
I like it in the green, I think it’s can be read and noticed easier. Whether the title is green or purple - I’m totally intrigued by what the story could be about by the cover as a whole.

That's good to hear I always have a hard time pinpointing what part of the story will make an interesting cover or if it'll just be weird, lol.

@Braden-Hallett I agree with everyone that this one is definitely popping a lot more. Much more likely to grab my attention when competing with other covers.
From my foray into self-publishing novels, that was big in my eyes. How much attention can this cover grab on a website in a gallery of other covers. Muted colors can help feel like the story, but then might cause the book to disappear among other covers.

@Braden-Hallett That gradient in the title has really lifted it. Nice.

@Braden-Hallett NICE cover design! Really simple and effective.
You’re gonna hate me cuz I’m late to the party, but honestly, a green title would work better, in my humble book design opinion.
Instead of that lighter “mint green” that you weren’t digging, have you tried the mid-green of the computer chip? That color, with a gradient, would really make the title pop as well has bring some color harmony to the bottom of the cover. It’s also nice to have the title and byline a little more separated in color.
It’s worth a try.
