Our Cat Costume Contest winner from our Black Cats Tell All Facebook page is Jacqueline Yeung and her black cat Seraph. Black cats get a bad rap for being hard to photograph and they sometimes are BUT it’s very easy to edit these days. We’re happy to announce a new treat for our BCTA tribe members: Weekly makeover contests. If you’d like one, follow us at Black Cats Tell All

Thank you to everyone who gave thoughtful comments and useful critiques about our book cover and publishing options. We’re mulling them over for a few days but feeling the love and clarity. Here are a few early revisions you might enjoy seeing (sorry, it’s a poor screenshot.) Ilsa over cover girl is looking adorbs but the plain, borderless edge is attractive suddenly. Oh dear. The other designs feature another kitten who is sweet but didn’t make the cut.

  3. Wow! So happy I won – my human LOVES art nouveau, and if you could see our vintage 1928 Bavarian-style house, you’d know it goes perfectly with it.

    Looking at the covers, my human favors the top, upper right hand version. She likes the way the S in Cats wraps around the kitty’s ear… but is wondering if there was a way to enlarge the Black text to make the top flush with the cat’s other ear, or maybe reduce the cat image a touch to make it flush with the text. She is very noodle-y with things like covers and graphics… she probably drives the designers she uses a bit crazy.

    1. I’m so glad. I know your house is vintage ’20s but didn’t know about Bavarian. And I can see we both are noodle-y :-). These were early revisions I’d rejected. The poor designer will not be happy if I start second-guessing myself.

  4. Wow, concats to the winners.

    This was a lot of work for the contestants and for you!

    Black cats rule!

    Happy Meowleen!

    Ched and Mao agree

  5. Happy Meowlloween! We love all of the artwork. 4C looks right to us.
    Concats to the Winners!!!
    Be safe kitties!

    1. Happy Meowloween to you and the fur crew. It’s too late to make major changes. The examples were just to show a few of the revisions. I hope I’m not going to second-guess myself to death LOL
