All righty, gang, I finally found the time to re-redo my cover for Dominion. To refresh everybody’s memory, here is the clear favorite from the last round of cover voting:
And here’s the latest version, which pretty much goes in a completely different direction:
And to help you decide which fits best, here’s the synopsis:
When the unimaginable happens and the dead come to life to roam the earth in search of human flesh, Hannah Jordan and her infant brother Noah take refuge in their family’s backyard bomb shelter. Months later, they emerge to find a world still overrun by zombies and ruled by vampires. These new self-styled “protectors” of humanity keep their food supply “safe” inside interment camps all over the world.
Hannah and her brother are quickly rounded up and taken to such a camp, where Noah is taken as a hostage to keep Hannah in line; but in this stark new reality, infants like Noah are a rarity. He draws the attention of vampire Alexandr Konstantin, a doctor, scientist and lone champion of human rights who wants to use Noah’s pure, untainted blood in his vaccine research. Alek pulls strings to take Hannah and Noah back to his own camp at an abandoned Army base, where humans live in safety and co-exist with vampires in peace.
For a little while, life is good. But when the ruling class of vampires decide they like things the way they are, they order Alek to shut down his research, and his commune, and turn those under his protection over to the interment camps. As Alek, Hannah and the commune’s other residents prepare to do battle to defend their home, a breach in the base’s fence lets the zombie horde into the camp. As all hell breaks loose around them, can Alek and Hannah develop that vaccine in time to give what remains of humanity a fighting chance? And if they do, what will it cost them?
Genre: Horror/Urban Fantasy (NOT YA)
Right, then. What say you, dear reader?
By the way, if you’re on Facebook you can also vote for your favorite cover version on my Facebook author page (which I don’t need to ask you guys to like because you’ve totally already done so, right?).

I want to like the second one better but I would like different top and bottom images. I like the middle section with the barbed wire fence. Maybe a woman’s face (Hannah) at the top in close up? Maybe the abandoned Army fort split with science type vials and things in the lower image?
That sounds good, but I spent hours trolling through stock photo sites and these were the most relevant images I could come up with. I think we’re looking at a case of “work with what you’ve got.”
