Don’t judge a book by its cover. Ha! The number one reason a potential reader opens your book or looks at the back cover is the cover itself. A great looking, professional design requires excellent typography, imagery that captures the imagination, and a composition that sets both the expectations and the tone of the book.
For fantasy and sci-fi readers, it nearly always requires custom illustration. As you already know, we want immersive worlds and compelling drama, hopefully with some violence!
And that’s merely scratching the surface of all that goes into a great design.
I’m happy to say that after half a year of careful work and a great partnership with Jeff Brown, we have a final version!
I’m thrilled for October 22nd, 2022!
