On Bookcovers and Making the Right Impressions

A friend of mine who runs a publishing company posted a link to the third part of a book cover series, and I was enthralled. Everything I’ve tried to tell other new authors is in the series and even more. Penny C. Sansevieri, CEO and founder of Author Marketing Experts, Inc. (AME) does a fantastic job of explaining how to make your book covers work using her expertise.

Time and time again pros will tell newbies about the basics of having a great book cover, only to be ignored. Crudely done book covers will hurt you. Badly thought out book covers will give away major plot points or tick off readers. A well-done book cover is a partner in your sales. If it’s amateurishly done, only your Aunt Tessie will but it out of pity for you.

Check out these articles and let the good advice soak in.
