I do love my covers, but I'm wondering if I need a damsel in distress on the cover, although that would be false advertising since I write really strong and proactive female characters. Mary Stewart, Alice Hoffman and Elizabeth George typically don’t have women draped in gossamer on the covers of their books. Should I?

Here’s the cover of my soon to be released book and the cover to the novel I published in March. And here's my question--do you think my books would sell better if they had people on the covers? Stealing Mercy has sold many more copies than A Ghost of a Second Chance and I'm wondering if it’s because its genre is more obvious. Although A Ghost of a Second Chance isn't genre specific--I knew that before I published it. I knew it would be a hard sell, but since I love it I hoped others would as well.
