I. AM. A. BOOK. COVER. FREAK!!!
I swear, it takes me longer to decide what the cover will 'SAY', than what the novel will be about. So I just changed the cover of The Shelf (Book 1, Dead-End Ave series, you know the drill).

(Personally, I thought the FIRE on the front cover showed that.....but anyhoo...)
So, I re-did the cover, and subsequently, changed the face of all the covers down the line of the series.

Book 1's cover went from this:
Book 2's cover will have to do a similar update..
