We want you to share your book cover with us. An attractive cover is a big element in the appeal of your book.
We want the details about yours.
Did you design the cover?Nope. I write books and make photographs and do television. I don't have the talentto do graphic design.
Did your publisher design the cover?Yes, or to be specific she had an artist do it.
Did you get to give any input about the cover design?Absolutely
Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share thedetails.You notice the central piece is a traditional cap and tassel? For years thegraduating students at the college which is the focus of this mystery did not wearcaps and gowns at graduation. It was a very non-traditional college. In fact, therewas no campus at all. That's all changed over the years, but I find it interesting(to me at least) that the novel is about a period before the C&G became a normalexperience for the graduates.
Who is the cover artist?Gee, I don't think I ever knew, but I'm sure my publisher at Echelon Press knows hername.
Are you happy with the cover?Very
If not, what would you change and why?The printed cover has a blurb. I like the blurb but I prefer the cover without it.
Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.The color scheme is eye-catching. I always like covers with a lot of white.
Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.
