Good morning! As always, I’m honored to be able to take part in Reading As My Therapy posting. I want to delve into the story behind all those covers that sell the books we love.
Have you ever looked at a book cover, not liked the picture and passed it by? A lot of people do this, so as a writer, we have to make sure that the cover is the best it can be. It needs to portray the story within the pages of the book. Don’t give away the ending with the cover, but pull in the reader.
To the reader, always read the blurb at the back. Sometimes the cover doesn’t completely portray the book inside. I’ve overlooked so many books because of the cover, but then returned to the book, falling in love with the words within.
So, what is my point? Don’t always judge a book by it’s cover.
With that said, here’s my newest cover for my upcoming release of “The First Mate’s Lady”. I do think it’s becoming one of my favorites.
