It’s really a mystery to me. I’m hoping that with my next release, my gut instinct proves to be correct, because I think the cover is gorgeous. It was designed by Marteeka Karland, who is both an author and an artist. A really good artist. She took a pose that I liked, and produced this incredible cover that conveys the substance of the book, right down to the mountains that you can see through the window in the background. Not all covers pay such amazing attention to detail.
So what do you think? Does a good cover lure you into buying the book? Does a bad cover make you keep on browsing? I know a good cover can make me pause long enough to read the back cover blurb, which might entice me to part with some hard-earned cash. In that way, a cover could be said to sell the book. I guess I’m just going to have to wait and see what happens on release day, which is May 8th. (Just in case you find the cover irresistible, LOL!)
