You should try out a variety of fonts before finding what works best. For a uniform appearance, do not use more than two fonts.

Never use brassy or cheap color combination. The reader might feel nauseated by the odd look of your book if the right colors are not used. Contrast is really important because it highlights the overall presentation of a cover. In this context, always remember that font and background colors should not be of the same color. Moreover, if you are using a photo then the font color should complement the picture.
