Readers, writers and book publishers all know the importance of the book cover. It’s job is to attract attention; to stop the reader in their tracks long enough for them to want to dive in and read the first sentence.
So much of the success of the book depends on the cover; imagine it as being the shop window or the advertising billboard on the side of the road. If it doesn’t grab your attention immediately, the designer hasn’t done their job.
Here’s where you come in. I have my marketing hat on today; an irritating but necessary part of the Indi job description. I would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to rate my book covers from one to 4.
A. Secrets and Lies
B. Killing Sunday
- Poor; wouldn’t waste my time.
