How important is a book cover?
Everyone wants a cover that’s eye-catching—you know, the one that will make a potential reader pick it up or click on it. In such a competitive market, both online and off, a cover can really make or break a book because that first impression is so critical. It has to stand out not just in print, but also in thumbnail format. For me to pick up or click on a book, the cover has to grab me. It has to appeal to my senses … make me want to learn more. Even though I’m biased, I think the WATERFELL cover is very compelling—from the layout, to the art, to the font dissipating into the water—it’s attention getting.
