It depends.
I buy Japanese light novels so Im used to it, but I dont think it would do well in the west.
The two examples you posted are really not high quality stuff, made for book cover.
To work in a global market anime style needs to be toned down. For example my favorite japanese light novels published by Tokypop. Look at these covers and you will see the difference
Spoiler:







That kind of thing. I think Tokyopop had pretty nice covers.
The examples of art you posted are just not suited for something like book cover.
I live in Japan and even 300円 light novels have better fitted stuff.

Sorry if I sound harsh, its just my observation.
